"We exist to glorify God through the fulfillment of the Great Commission in the Spirit of the Great Commandment."
We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible authoritative Word of God. Therefore, our ministry emphasizes the exposition of God's Word from Genesis to Revelation, line upon line, precept upon precept. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of God, and in His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humanity, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential, and that repentance from sin and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to come into relationship with God. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by who's indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; we further believe His power and gifts are available to believers today. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. We believe it is important to uphold the Scriptural practices of the early church. Therefore, we hold to the practice of water baptism and the regular taking of Communion. We do not believe that either of these practices is essential for salvation, but that they serve as a demonstration of our living faith in Christ.
We put our faith into action. We define who we are, when we reach out to help others. We believe that outreach is the glue that holds a community of faith together. It defines who we are and what we are. We extend an invitation for you to be a part of our community outreach.
At Uprising we worship not to get something for ourselves, but because God is Lord and is worthy of our worship (see Psalm 45:11). The Bible declares, "You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power" (Revelation 4:11). We worship God because of the splendor of His being. He doesn't need our worship, but He desires it not for His benefit,
