About SonRise Church
At SonRise Church, we are striving to live our lives so others meet Jesus. This may look a little differently for each one of us, but ultimately we want to live lives that honor God and draw people to him. Take a look at our Core Values and you will see what truly drives us. We actively partner with other churches and organizations in our community to make it a better place to live. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, and maintain partnerships with churches in the Baptist Convention of Maryland and Delaware. We believe that none of us are perfect, but in spite of that, God loves all of us and wants more for our lives. This is why we proclaim and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, the Holy Spirit as our teacher, and the Father as our Source. We acknowledge that the Word of God is the infallible guide to all matters of faith, discipline, and practice.
Our Core Values
Mission Strategy and Essentials
Our mission as a church is “Living Our Lives So Others Meet Jesus.” We do not ever want to be people who repel anyone from Christ but rather the kind of people who by our actions, our love, and our faith, draw people to Jesus. Ultimately it is our desire to “Connect” people to Jesus, help them “Grow” to be more like Jesus, and to teach them to “Share” their faith in Jesus with others. Connect – Grow – Share
In order to accomplish this mission and maintain unity, it is essential to agree upon what specific characteristics make us unique in our calling from the Lord as the body of Christ known as SonRise Church. These characteristics must be the shaping force and identifying the strength of every multisite of SonRise Church. It is the mission and purpose of every Campus Pastor to guard and develop these aspects of ministry as the framework for their campus as part of SonRise Church.
