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

King & Cross

Current Series - King & Cross

Stories have the power to shape reality. In the Gospel of Mark we find such a story. A narrative of the One whose birth bends creation toward himself. A tale of a man who commands the winds and waves. The man who was hurricane become human and fire become flesh.
This story has the power to not only alter history, but to usher you into a whole new reality. This is the King & Cross.

    “According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind. . In God you come up against something that is in every respect immeasurably superior to yourself. Unless you know God as that – and, therefore, know your-self as nothing in comparison – you do not know God at all. As long as you are proud you cannot know God. . A proud man is always looking down on things and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.” . - C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

    Meet Jamil. This is his story: . "In 2013, my wife + I were excited to learn we were expecting a child. Weeks went by + our first ultrasound revealed we not only had one, but TWO! We were ecstatic + scared! But we learned early on that we had a condition called twin to twin transfusion. . We went months waking each morning with the fear we lost one if not both babies, praying for movement + poking my wife's stomach to irritate for movement. Two ultrasounds a week. Countless doctors/specialists were visited. Down to the wire, we were almost sent out of state for an emergency procedure that would most likely cause one twin to not make it, while saving the other. . We were broken, stressed, + out of tears to cry. . Long story short, our babies were protected, + God provided everything needed for the girls to survive. When doctors were on the edge of their seat, God called us to sit back, kick up our feet and trust. So we did. Through the stress + through the tears, we found a peace that surpassed all understanding, a providence that transcended human capability. The girls spent a month in the NICU after being born months early, but powered through like champs. . There are so many more details that unraveled throughout our experience, but the gist of it is this: we did everything humanly possible to keep our babies safe, but that wasn't enough. There was nothing more we could do to help. The doctors literally told us we were doing everything perfect, but it wasn't enough to ensure they would be fine. God paved the parts of the road we were unable to pave. He provided what was not in our capability to do so. He proved to us he is in control, kept us dependent, + through everything, my wife + I learned how to trust deeper, pray harder, + relax in the midst of the hurricane. . My wife will be the first to say we learned how to pray during this time. It's a time we would never wish anyone to experience, but to be drawn closer to the Lord as we were, we don't regret one moment now looking back. God is good, all the time. Even in times he feels most distant... He's closer than you can imagine.” . What’s your story? 📄 #wearerise

    Meet Clare. This is her story: . “I was raised in a system that focused more on what your walk with God appeared to be than what it actually was. No one shared their true struggles or had real conversations. You never wanted people to actually know you because then you would be “uninvited”. It has been incredible to me that after three years of being at Rise I am still welcomed with open arms. . Having a church family that wants to do life with you, that wants to love you despite your humanness, and wants to offer correction with love has been so meaningful to my personal relationship with God. It has allowed me to stop living in constant guilt and to be able to experience God’s grace, acceptance, and love. . Zefren and I are so thankful to be a part of a community that continues to help us grow personally as well as in our marriage and friendships.” . What’s your story? 📄 #wearerise

    The resurrection of King Jesus means death is defeated. It means your sins are forgiven. It means all our deepest heart-longings can find their truest fulfillment. It means you are saved from the wrath of God. It means you are free from the claws of the grave. It means you will live in the Kingdom of God for all eternity; that death and evil have no claim on you; that healing and hope are your new reality; that you can know and be known by Jesus--the one who unraveled death and who is the author of life. It means you are in the Father's everlasting love by the grace of the Son, through the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit. 🌿 We need to sing. We need to gather. We need to celebrate. We need to dance. We need feel. We need to move. We need to rise. We need to glorify King Jesus. 🌿 That's why you need to join us TONIGHT, as we gather to celebrate our RISEN KING. 🌿 4PM/6PM

    3/3. MISSION BEYOND BORDERS . “Christ’s work for you – as the Messiah who suffered, and died and rose – gives way to His work through you – as the ones who witness to His name. When God calls you to salvation, He calls you to His mission. His work for us leads to His work through us. . So the point of the resurrection is not to sit back and wait for a heavenly afterlife. It’s not to give a religious dimension to our lives. It’s not to rest only in the comfort of future hope. The point is proclamation. . The message is about the Messiah, and the message is for sinners everywhere. It’s about repentance. It’s about dying to sin and being made right with God. Forgiveness is available to all because of the wrath-averting sacrifice of Jesus on the cross and the life-giving splendor of Jesus in His resurrection. We are soldiers of the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. . There is a breeze blowing through this army of messengers. That breeze is a Person – He is the Holy Spirit of God empowering us to be on mission. The borders aren’t confined to Jerusalem. They’re not confined to your church or your community. The message must go out. The nations must hear. . The Spirit of God uses the gospel of God to motivate the people of God to be on mission with God. To be about His work is a great gift.” - Trevin Wax

    2/3. JOY BEYOND BELIEF . “The resurrection gives us joy beyond belief. We have the kind of joy that lasts forever and undergirds our lives. Knowing joy comes in the morning can give you hope during the darkest night. . The gospel seems like it is good news that is too good to be true. The truth is, the gospel is too good not to be true. We can never exhaust the truths of the gospel. And it’s our joy that keeps us on the pursuit of God. Sometimes our faith has to catch up with our joy. . In Jesus, everything sad will come untrue, and all the sufferings and pain of this present world will be swallowed up in a sinkhole of death and covered over with a garden so beautiful that it will make all the pain seem worth it. . When Christ comes again, He will make us like Himself. Our final destination is a new earth. We await the day of resurrection, when the joy of heaven is reunited with the stuff of earth. In that day, joy will be our routine. It is, as C.S. Lewis called it, “the business of heaven.” . Coffins will not stay closed. Old bones will come back together. Skin will reappear. That hole we fill up with dirt will be empty once more. The stench of death will be blown away by the fragrance of new life. The cemetery is a garden, and one day the joy of resurrection will blow through the tombstones of all who believe.” - Trevin Wax

    “For us, as believers, there are three unmistakable gifts of the resurrection. While there are obviously more than these, I believe there is much to be gained from focusing on these three gifts.” . 1/3 LIFE BEYOND THE GRAVE . “Jesus’ resurrection guarantees life beyond the grave – the first gift. In it, we find there is hope in our despair. . The resurrection tells the Christian that the sin of your past doesn’t define your future. The struggle of the present will not keep you from glory. While you may look at yourself and only see your sin and failure, the resurrection says there’s more. The dark night is giving way to the dawn. . Life beyond the grave means we can have confidence that Jesus will do what He has promised. Even though the idea of worshipping a crucified and risen Savior seems like nonsense for many people, we can witness with the confidence that there are people who will join the millions over the course of history who have been amazed to encounter the resurrected Savior. . There are people who sense the darkness of their hearts and the depths of their sin and they are hoping for life – life beyond the deadness of their heart, life beyond the dreariness of their routine, and life that will take them beyond the grave to the world for which they were created. Jesus’ resurrection grants us this gift.” - Trevin Wax
  • rise.cc

    “If you listen carefully, you can hear echoes of the resurrection in the great, epic stories we return to again and again. Those stories lead us to a poi­nt of despair where all seems to be lost, only then to erupt into uncontainable joy as good triumphs over evil. . There is a reason these stories resonate with us. In one way or another, they model and mimic the true story of our world. A story of perfection and paradise, corrupted by human sin and wickedness, redeemed by a selfless sacrifice, and restored through a triumphant return. This is the true story of our world. . Jesus’ resurrection is the turning point. There is great significance in this event, both in the broader story of all of creation and in our individual stories.” - Trevin Wax
  • rise.cc

    “Ultimately, the incarnation led to the cross. Jesus first took our flesh, then bore our sins. This was a depth of penetration into our world in order to reach us, in comparison with which our little attempts to reach people seem amateur and shallow. The cross calls us to a much more radical and costly kind of evangelism than most churches have begun to consider.” - John Stott . How could you become more radical in your attempts to reach people? A great first step might be to invite someone to join you at our Easter service! Tell them you’ll save a seat for them. 🙌🏾

    The gospel is not just the ABC’s but the A to Z of the Christian life. It is inaccurate to think the gospel is what saves non-Christians, and then Christians mature by trying hard to live according to biblical principles. It is more accurate to say that we are saved by believing the gospel, and then we are transformed in every part of our minds, hearts, and lives by believing the gospel more and more deeply as life goes on.” - Tim Keller

    REPOST from @wearerisekids: . “In January, Rise Kids adopted a small group model which divided our classrooms into smaller groups and made each of our volunteers a small group leader. This change has allowed our volunteers to be truly intentional when teaching and forming relationships with Rise kids and families. Our call to disciple the next generation is working in ways most of us couldn’t have ever foreseen! We’re so blessed to be on this journey with all of you!” . WOW WOW WOW. Can we all celebrate the intentionality of @wearerisekids and all of our amazing volunteers?! 👏🏽🌟👶🏼👧🏾🧒🏻👦🏽
