Our Church

Arise Baptist Church is an exciting new church plant in the Garden Oaks/Oak Forest area of Houston, TX. We exist to exalt Jesus by fulfilling the Great Commission that He left us with by following the great commandment. The Great Commission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ by declaring the Gospel to every person and teaching them all things God commands in His Word. The great commandment is to love God with all of your heart and to love your neighbor as yourself.

At Arise Baptist Church you will be loved, prayed for, and connected with other people who will encourage you to live the life God intended for you. You will experience teaching from God’s Word that will guide you to the fulfilled life God created you to have. Here you will experience and have the opportunity to participate in worship of our great God! We will sing His praises, we will pray in faith asking for God’s help, and we will be challenged by the truth of God’s Word that holds every answer to every question of life. Here you will be a part of reaching the Garden Oaks/Oak Forest/Independence Heights community, the greater Houston area, and the world beyond with the message of hope and redemption.
