In 2017 we rise.
We rise to our calling to change the world – starting in our own city.
We rise to our purpose of bringing God glory – starting in our own hearts.
We rise to follow rise to follow Jesus out of the loop we’ve been stuck in and onto an unknown terrain where he will guide us to new mountain heights and walk alongside us in the valleys that are in between.
We rise to the challenge of becoming of who God created us to be.
Join us in 2017 as we RISE.

The most important thing in this life is knowing Jesus because knowing Jesus changes everything and makes us right or whole by God’s standard (and that’s a pretty high standard). Paul said in Philippians 3 that he set everything aside so that he could focus on knowing Jesus and the power of Jesus’ resurrection. If we are going to RISE in must be in that power.
Coming to know Jesus is not the finish line but the starting line. The righteousness of God that Jesus gives us means that we are immediately forgiven but we are not immediately changed. There is work to do in our hearts and minds which will bring transformation. The work is done through the application of the gospel in our lives.
