What we Believe

Learn a little more about Sunrise

At sunrise we believe that the role of the church is not bound by it’s walls. Our role as Christians is to do more than simply know Christ, but to bring Him with us into the world when we leave our campus. Our highest calling is to Love God and unite the lost with the Him.

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the basis for our belief and practice, and the supreme and final authority for all human conduct.

There is only one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took on Himself all of our sin, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and is seated at the right hand of God the Father as our mediator and Advocate. He will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth.

All people have sinned, and are separated from God. Only God’s grace in Christ can save a person from the just judgment of God. Every person needs salvation, which is offered freely to all who through faith accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We embrace the 2000 ‘Baptist Faith and Message’ statement adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention as a guide to our faith and practice.
