Welcome to Mountain Rise

Mountain Rise welcomes you to a different kind of church, where…

  • God’s love embraces all persons equally, no matter their gender, race, or sexual identity;
  • Faith is a matter of mind as well as heart;
  • Diversity, acceptance, and inclusivity are strengths to be taught;
  • Justice is the social expression of God’s love;
  • The Bible is taken seriously, so it cannot always be taken literally;
  • Spiritual life can heal the soul, equipping us to heal our community and the Earth.

Mountain Rise is...
An open and affirming community of faith where you can nurture your spirit or raise your family — where you belong and can help change the world for good!
