We Are Rise

Rise is a church that gathers Sunday nights at 4pm & 6pm in Gresham, Oregon to worship God and grow in God's word. During the week we meet in homes to encourage one another and provide a welcoming place to share our real lives. A church is not a building, a mission statement, or way of believing. A Church is a people of Jesus. We are the Church. #wearerise

Living Stones

There are few things that can influence the direction of the culture, a city, or life-change like the local church. The Church is Jesus’ blood-bought, future-building, generation-shaping vehicle in the world. The Church isn’t a dying, antiquated, powerless entity. It’s not the building or the logo. No. We are his Church. Each one of us—like living stones—being built up for God’s purpose in the world. This fall, we’re diving into a theology of the Church and scouring the Scriptures to understand her more. Join us as we invade the Bible to get a glimpse of Jesus’ Church.

    Jesus is writing a new story in our city. . Here’s a taste of the story of tonight: 600 adults and 124 children came together to celebrate king Jesus.👑 . 29 people stepped into the waters of baptism to declare Jesus is King. 💦 . $1,514,381.57 was raised in two years for the Rise Together Campaign. 🙌🏾 . As pastor Jason said: “It could be easy to assume that the victory is the building. NO! The prize, goal, hope, and victory our city needs is JESUS!” . Lives are changed by Jesus! People need the grace of Jesus! Jesus moves us from sinner to saved, from lost to found, from empty to full, from broken to whole, from darkness to light!! 🎉 . This building is merely a memorial stone that marks the work of Jesus in our city for generations to come!⛪️ . All glory ALWAYS, ONLY, TOTALLY, and FOREVER belongs to JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! 👏🏾 . #wearerise

    Meet Tim!👋🏾 . “For 20 years of my life I have had such an up and down relationship with God. Growing up I had a fearful image of God. I thought that everything I did wrong will never be forgiven. I thought that I wasn’t worthy of His love. I felt that only “perfect” people could receive His love. . The church that I was in as a child felt void. There was no warmth in the church, no passion. The community was bitter and judgmental. As a child, seeing this really made me want to distance myself from Christians because I didn’t want to be like them. . It wasn’t until one of my high school mentors one day spoke about his faith. Seeing his joy and love for God was so eye opening. I had never seen someone talk about God like that. That small conversation planted a mustard seed into my life. Before that conversation I thought all “good” Christians never messed up, but because of my mentor’s humility it opened up a door for me to come back to Jesus. I realized that no one can be perfect. . Can you accept your mistakes and forgive yourself just like God forgives you? But I still lacked confidence that people would welcome me with open arms. I still thought other Christians wouldn’t accept me. They would think I’m not holy enough. That was until this year. . God blessed me with the most influential person in my life, my girlfriend. God gave her such a big heart and such a yearning for the Lord. What she has shown completely changed my opinion of what a loving person God is. She encourages me that we need to let go, stop thinking we are in control and let God show us our path. I fully believe in that. . God works in such mysterious ways. So many things have been falling into place ever since I committed my life to God. Since I adopted this mentality, I found a church that I can call home, a community that I can call family, a significant other who I will one day call my wife and most importantly, God. I know that He truly loves me and He forgives me and receives me with open arms. . I want to get baptized because I want to publicly declare my faith in Him. I want to serve God with all my heart.” . COME CELEBRATE WITH US TONIGHT @4PM! 🎉💦 #wearerise

    Meet Tiffany!👋🏾 . “I was baptized Catholic and received my communion at a young age. I would always attend Church with my mom every Sunday for as long as I could remember. . As I got older I stopped going. I really never felt a connection and just thought I could pray at home if I wanted to talk to God. . I was blessed to be a mom to two beautiful girls and then my mindset changed. I want my girls to know God, understand Him, Love Him and praise Him just as I did growing up. . I have attended a few past events Rise has put on for the community and I immediately felt a connection. God was calling my family and I to Rise. . The Medford’s always reached out to us about coming to church, and we finally did! It was so amazing and uplifting. I feel truly blessed that God & Rise would welcome us with open arms and I’m so excited for this next adventure! . A quote I won’t ever forget from the first time we attended Rise: “Light yourself on fire with passion and people will come from miles to watch you burn.” . TOMORROW we as a church get to come around Tiffany as she declares her love for Jesus through baptism 💦and we get to celebrate her new life IN HIM!👏🏾 . JOIN US for Victory Sunday! 🎉💦 We’ll see YOU at 4PM! #wearerise

    Meet Alec!👋🏾 . “During a rough period in my life I had strayed from Jesus. For the longest time I felt as if I was wandering alone in the dark. But then I was encouraged to come to Rise and reconnect with Jesus. . I have been at Rise for 2 years at this point, but until recently I have struggled with feeling like I was not able to trust in Jesus and did not know how to fully have a relationship with Him. . One day, after a nasty fall during a hike, I started to feel frustrated and alone. I felt so defeated I began yelling at the sky all my worries and issues. I wanted to quit. . But it wasnt until I literally picked myself up to continue that I had this beautiful moment where I realized I was not alone, that I wasn't talking just to the sky -but rather FINALLY praying and connecting with Jesus. . Now more than ever, Jesus is pursuing me. No matter what mountain I hike up, any forest I get lost in, or troubles I face in life, Jesus HAS and WILL continue to find me. I will place my heart and trust fully with Him, and I will not be lost again. . I want to get baptized to publicly declare the dedication of my life in serving others in His name and Glory, in my renewed faith and trust in Him, and despite my wrong doings in my past when I strayed—that I am burying my old life and being made new by Him. . I am so joyful and excited to celebrate and continue to grow in Jesus with my Rise Family!” . Can we celebrate with Alec?! 👏🏾 We can’t wait for Victory Sunday to watch him and so many other declare their new life in Jesus!💦 . JOIN US THIS SUNDAY! The party stars at 4PM! 🙌🏾🎉 #wearerise

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meet Cliff!👋🏾 . “I grew up with a father who was Catholic and a mother who was Mormon but neither one of them practiced their faith. . I attended Church and bible study with my best friend growing up, and at age 13 I accepted Jesus into my life. . I was never baptized but always felt in my heart that God had a bigger calling for me. I became a father and a husband, and for me that was my greatest calling. . I want to bring God closer to my heart and teach my children through His eyes.” . “For though I fall, I will rise again. Though I sit in darkness, The Lord will be my light.” . JOIN US THIS SUNDAY for 🎉Victory Sunday🎉 as Cliff and over 20 others step into the waters of baptism! 💦The party starts at 4PM!! We’ll see YOU there! . #wearerise ???⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    A few weekends ago, we rallied around a united prayer to see 💦20💦 people be baptized. . We prayed and pushed, and this weekend we celebrated the Holy Spirit’s answer to that prayer as over 20 people are being baptized in the name of King Jesus. 🙌🏾 . Why do we pray for increased numbers of things such as baptisms? 🙏🏾 Because we want to be a church that impresses people or pats itself on the back? NO WAY! We have no power in and of ourselves to change hearts or give any increase. God alone sovereignly gives the increase.(1 Cor 3:6-8). So why rally around prayers like that?? . Because JESUS is worthy of glory. He is so very worthy. He deserves every ounce of our love and obedience, and He is worthy of the worship of every heart in our city. We strive to humbly do all things to the praise of His name! . Meanwhile, we are surrounded by thousands and millions of people who know nothing of the beauty of Christ. We long to see Jesus be glorified as men, women, and children from Portland, Gresham, Corbett, Sandy and beyond bow their knee to King Jesus and taste the beauty of His grace before He returns.👑 . One day every tongue will confess He is Lord—but the greatest hope for the whole world is to taste and see that the Lord is good through the magnificent grace of the Gospel and people bowing willingly today! . JOIN US THIS SUNDAY for Victory Sunday! The party starts at 4PM followed by ONE service at 5PM! You won’t want to miss this! 💦🎉 . #wearerise

    Every generation is a mission field. . In other words, every generation is a new “lost people group” looking for answers that only the Gospel provides. Every generation needs the Gospel spoken afresh over them. But who will go as missionaries into the field to reap hearts and minds for Jesus through hard Gospel work? . Jesus raises up the NEXT GENERATION by sending the previous to care about them, and lead them to Jesus. Think about that! Jesus invites us into His work, by His power! Are you called to this work? . 01. Check out this week’s teaching. 🎧 . 02. Consider being involved in a City Group to explore this topic. 🏘 . 03. Pray for @wearerisekids and @weareriseyouth leaders and perhaps prayerfully consider serving in one of these areas. 🙏🏾👶🏻👧🏼👦🏽👩🏻👱🏽‍♂️👱🏾‍♀️ . #wearerise #wearerisekids #weareriseyouth

    May the Church not stop with us. May the ever spreading gospel create such a shift in you that you become an instrument in shifting the next generation. . As you encounter young men and women around you, may you see the future of the Church and be so compelled by the Gospel that you seize the opportunity to disciple them into the family of God. . May the resurrection of Jesus in you resurrect the next generation as you serve those around you this week. . Blessings, Rise Fam! 🙌🏾 . #wearerise

    Meet Melody!👋🏾 . “I’ve always known who God was, but my journey with the Lord started when I was entering 7th grade. . I started going to youth groups and attending church here and there, but I was never consistent. . Freshman year I went to Dunes Bible Camp, and after the retreat a lot of the kids were getting baptized. I wanted to—but I wasn’t really sure what baptism meant, or why we do it. So I decided I wasn’t ready for that yet. . Now that I’ve been going to Rise for a while now, and understand the importance of baptism, I know I am ready to make this decision! . At 18 years old and a senior in high-school, I could not be happier to be getting baptized! I’m so happy I was able to make this decision after learning what baptism is, and I’m so excited to publicly declare my faith in Jesus!” . Can we celebrate with Melody?! 👏🏾💦🎉 . Melody is one of TWENTY-ONE people getting baptized on November 3rd! If you’re thinking about getting baptized—what are you waiting for?! .

How AMAZING is it to see one of our @wearerisekids 🌟 taking their next step in their walk with Jesus via baptism!! . Baptism is going public about your faith in Jesus and communicating to the world your heart-felt commitment to following Him. It expresses the believer’s death to sin, burial of the old life, and resurrection to a new kingdom life in Jesus. .

    Meet Nicole!👋🏾 . “Shortly after I joined Rise, I began to be encouraged to get baptized. I was raised in a church, was baptized, did my first communion, and I was confirmed; so baptism was nothing I had even considered as an adult. Why would I? . But Jesus has put this on my heart. It’s not about, “been there, done that”, it’s about the GOSPEL, about RENEWAL, about DECLARATION, about COMMUNITY. . I have found community amongst Rise and I have an awakened faith. Instead of “Why would I?”, I now think, “Why wouldn’t I?”. . Lyrics from my favorite worship song say, “I am fully known and loved by YOU.” I am thankful for that reminder—HE is always seeking me.” . CAN WE CELEBRATE with Nicole?! 👏🏾🎉 . JOIN her and 🎉FIFTEEN🎉 others on Victory Sunday to celebrate those who are being raised to NEW LIFE in JESUS! 💦🙌🏾 . #wearerise

    “God’s people are designed to influence others. God’s people have been purchased by His blood and are empowered with His Spirit to influence the world around them. They are designed to lead. If you are His, you are designed to lead. And your church is designed to create and commission leaders who serve the world as they represent Christ and reconcile people to Him.” . - Eric Geiger, Designed to Lead . #wearerise

    Meet Ava!👋🏾 . “After going to @weareriseyouth’s Awaken Retreat, I felt such a strong connection to God. I had been thinking about getting baptized for a little while but I wasn’t too sure. . I thought that it meant I could no longer make mistakes and I had to live a perfect life, which was very overwhelming to think about. . However after talking to my youth leaders I realized that being surrounded by Gods love and leaning on Him when I need help is how I want to navigate my life forever. . It really reassured me that getting baptized is the next step I need to take in my walk with Jesus!” . HOW AWESOME IS THIS? 👏🏾 Ava is taking her next step in her walk with Jesus—and THIS is something worth standing on our chairs while clapping and worshipping Jesus for! 🙌🏾 . JOIN US November 3rd for 🎉Victory Sunday🎉 as we do this very thing in celebration of JESUS and what He is doing in-and-through the life of Ava and a whole crew of others—declaring their new life in Him! .

    Meet Pricilla!👋🏾 . “I grew up Catholic and I got baptized as a baby. I went through all my life never understanding what it meant to have a relationship with God. . I thought God hated me. I thought I had to be perfect to be accepted by Jesus. I remember one specific night completing giving up on God. But He never gave up on me. He continued to pursue me. . It’s been 2 1/2 years since I began to have a relationship with Jesus. It wasn’t until the end of my Senior year when God revealed Himself to me. . His true self. . I learned that following Jesus won’t bring perfection to my life—but purpose. I learned that Jesus loves me, He forgives me, and He never gives up on me. . That’s where my story begins. . I’ve been going from church to church, just trying to find a place to call home. I won’t forget the first day I walked through the doors of Rise. I’m so glad that I found this church. . I have decided to get baptized on November 3rd because I want to follow Jesus and publicly declare my faith in Him! . For those of you wondering if you should get baptized or not, I encourage you to do so. I battled with myself wondering, “Am I worthy enough?” Or having thoughts like: “I’m not a good enough person.” I was pushing it off for years and I kept wanting to push it off because I wasn’t “holy” enough. . JESUS WANTS YOUR HEART. JESUS LOVES YOU. JESUS WANTS YOU NOW. . If you truly believe in Him, there is no better time to get baptized—what are you waiting for?! . I’m so thankful for all the people who have brought me to this moment and have been always leading me towards Truth. I’m so excited for this new journey with Rise City Church and to continue to deepen my relationship with Jesus.” . 🎉 We can’t wait to celebrate with everyone who is taking their next step, entering the waters on November 3rd! 💦 👏🏾 If you want to get baptized, or have any questions about baptism—check out rise.cc/baptism!

    Moses was a leader. Deborah was a leader. David was a leader. Ruth was a leader. Joseph was a leader. Priscilla was a leader. Gideon was a leader. Nehemiah was a leader. Phoebe was a leader. Paul was a leader. Esther was a leader. Joshua was a leader. . “Men and women God called to lead — sometimes reluctantly at first — humbled themselves before God knowing that without Him they could do nothing. They stepped out where no one else had gone before and guided people to a God- ordained victory. They used their influence to move people to a greater reality than they could have imagined.” - RON EDMONDSON . #wearerise
