We believe we are all called to love God, love others and live the life God calls us to live.
"Love God. Love others. Live the life God calls us to live."
The vision statement here at Sunrise, is very important to us. It's a message that is the foundation for our church and ministries. It intertwines with the "1-1-1" Plan: one worship service, one small group and one ministry.
Love God and connect with Him through one worship service.
Love others with fellowship and studying the Bible together.
Live the life God calls you to live by serving the Lord and engaging in ministry.
We believe the "1-1-1" Plan together with the vision statement is part of a balanced walk with Christ and is essential to spiritual growth.
We purpose to provide an atmosphere of Christian fellowship by taking care of our members and providing small groups for close relationships.
We purpose to share the love of God to our community by finding ways to engage people in the journey and conversation of Christ. We encourage our church to do this corporately in our community events and privately in everyday lives.
We purpose to engage in meaningful and dynamic worship as we seek to encounter God and respond back to Him.
We purpose to disciple members through teaching, training, equipping and mentoring them in ministry.
We purpose to provide support, restoration and recovery to those who are in need; to maintain effective prayer and to involve ourselves in missions at home and abroad through prayer, education, tithing, giving and going.
We believe that the Bible is God's perfect Word, true and without error (Psalm 19:7). It is inspired by God and every scripture of every chapter of every book is useful for equipping us for every good work God has for us (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
We believe that God is the creator of all things. He created mankind in His own image to rule over and care for his creation (Genesis 1:1-31).
We believe that man was created very good, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection and was therefore seperated from God and eternity (Romans 5:12).
We believe that Jesus Christ is God that came as man to take away the sins of the world (John 3:16). He died on a cross as the final atonement for sin and rose on the third day, alive, fulfilling the prophecy of the Old Testament and the law (Luke 24:44) and giving us His grace (2 Corinthians 5:21, Colossian 2:13-15, Galatians 4:4-7).
We believe that salvation cannot be earned, but can only be obtained through God's gift of righteousness through Christ's death and resurrection (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work of grace as a result of faith in Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:3-4).
We believe that Heaven is the glorious eternal home of the born-again believers (John 14:2-3). There will be no sin, pain, or death in Heaven (Revelation 7:16-17).
We believe that Hell is real (Revelation 20:10, 15). However, according to the scripture it is God's desire that through His grace and forgiveness and the atoning sacrifice of Christ for our sins that no one go there. "God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2 Peter 3:9).
