Although these are a work in progress, we believe these values are foundational in our approach to how we will build Rise Church.
We believe in exalting Jesus. He is the center of everything we do. We are Jesus people, not religious people. It's not about us; it's about Him.
We believe and value the Bible as God's revealed truth and the catalyst for life transformation and change. The Word of God is one of the greatest gifts He has given us. It's so many things — divinely inspired, relevant, applicable, perfect, supernatural, simple, complex, comforting and challenging.
We believe in being generous in all aspects of our lives. As we give generously of our time, talent and our resources, we believe we'll experience the joy of seeing God transform our lives and the lives of others.
We believe that it matters how we do things, not just what we do. We will not sacrifice others to accomplish a goal. When the world gets darker our kindness will rise and we will watch God change the world through us.
We believe it is our duty to teach and train leaders based on 2 Timothy 2:2. We don’t win alone. We define our wins by how many others we can bring with us on our journey.
Scripture makes it clear that God builds through family — both natural and spiritual. A family culture is key to seeing people grow and be challenged at the same time.
We believe true fulfillment in life is found in serving others and sharing our faith. Our faith is active and designed to improve our world, not to judge it. We will be participators, not spectators in the local church.
We believe honor is about who we are and those we represent. It is pleasing to God when we honor Him and those He has put in our lives.
We believe in doing the best we can with the gifts God gave us. We will expand our minds, stretch our thinking, and push the limits of creativity — not in the pursuit of perfection, but in the pursuit of God because He is creatively excellent.
We believe in risking it all for the next generation. They are the “now” as well as the future. We will invest in them to see generations changed through Jesus Christ.
MUSIC THAT INSPIRES
We believe we worship in all aspects of our life. We will pursue God through inspirational worship experiences that propel us to lead an active and worshipful lifestyle in our community.
