GROW IN YOUR FAITH
Building your relationship with Jesus and others
We are a family, and we want all of our family members to be growing closer to Jesus! The church is a place for healing, encouragement, and learning. The church is also a catalyst for people to spread the love and hope of Jesus. In order to fulfill that mission, we must develop a healthy, vibrant relationship with Jesus and with others. Here are some ways we can grow in our faith.
Attend Church Weekly
Make sure you get in the habit of attending weekly services! The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:25, "Don’t stop meeting together with other believers, which some people have gotten into the habit of doing. Instead, encourage each other, especially as you see the day drawing near."
Join us weekly at Arise for one of our two identical services on Sunday mornings. Also, Arise is a praying church and we gather as a congregation every Wednesday night at 7:00pm for prayer and bible study. During this service, we pray for God's guidance for our church as well as the needs of our church, the community, nation, and the world!
Daily Read Your Bible
The Bible is God’s "user manual" for life. Just as we need to continually breathe oxygen to survive, we need to regularly study the Bible to grow and thrive spiritually.
Your New Believer's Bible contains helpful information on how to begin and continue healthy Bible study habits. If you need more assistance, visit the Connect Center and one of our hosts will gladly give you more information to get you started!
Talk to God Often
Prayer is how we communicate with God. All good relationships need good communication. Your relationship with God is no exception. Even Jesus himself took time to pray to God for guidance and direction. If Jesus felt the need to pray, how much more do we need to do it?
Prayer may seem intimidating but it doesn't have to be. Read Luke 11:1-13 to learn how the disciples sought Jesus' direction on how to pray and Jesus gave them the perfect model to follow.
Attend Members Class
We know that being new to a church can be exciting and intimidating. The STARTING POINT class helps introduce you to our Arise Family. This is your chance to spend time with our Pastoral staff, ask questions, and begin your journey here at Arise.
