Why We Exist

Our dream is to have a culture where Rising Hope partners take the gospel to their neighborhoods and business through groups and one-on-one encounters.

As a church body, we want to multiply teachers and worshipers to plant churches where God leads.

Our mission as a church is to...

Love God. Love People. Serve our Community & World

What We Believe

God is the creator of all things, and remains omni-present and omnipotent throughout eternity.

Following man's fall into sin, God sent his only begotten Son (Jesus) to die for our sins.

Jesus Christ is the prophesized Messiah of the Old Testament and is only begotten Son of God the Father.

Jesus Christ came to earth and humbled himself to live as humans and ultimately, to die on a cross for the forgiveness of our sins.

Jesus Christ is the one true way to eternal salvation, and belief and trust in Him as your lord and savior secures your eternal salvation.

Eternal salvation is received simply through belief in Jesus Christ as your personal lord and savior.

The Bible clearly states the path to salvation is through Jesus Christ, and Him alone.

You were created on purpose, and for a purpose by God the father. He has known His will for you from well before you were ever born into this world.

We believe you were ultimately created to love God, love people and to serve our community & world.

The Christian Bible is the written word of God the Father, authored by humans, but divinely inspired by God.

Broken up into 66 separate 'books,' the Bible is inerrant, authoritative and complete word of God.

2 Timothy 3:16

"All Scripture is God-breathed..."
