About Sonrise Baptist Church

Sonrise Independent Baptist Church in Tucson, AZ

"Where the Son Always Shines"

Sonrise Baptist Church is a growing Independent Baptist Church that is focused on soulwinning, missions and edifying the church body. I pray that you will be encouraged and blessed in your attendance at Sonrise.


This year we are studying the following



One of the most important things that everyone needs is purpose.  Without this, life is meaningless and directionless. Our theme this year reflects the mission of Sonrise Baptist Church. Our desire as a church is to exalt our God in proper worship, edify the saints so that they grow as God intended, and evangelize the lost so that all may hear the good news.
With this in mind, our desire this year is that you grow with Sonrise into the mission and purpose that God has given us. In order to do this we will be studying the following areas:

We can’t properly worship God if we don’t know him well. In order to know Him, we will learn to exalt God by studying who He is, His nature, and His attributes.  We will learn about His existence, love, wrath, holiness, the meaning of His names, and many, many other topics. Join us Sunday mornings as we learn more about our great God.

Another very important purpose of our church is that we edify (build up) the believers. We will do this in several ways.  First, we will learn more about the local church.  This doctrine is very lacking in Christianity today but is extremely critical.  Next, we will also study the Baptist Distinctives.  In order to be built up properly, we need to have a solid recognition of who we are.  Finally, during Sunday night services, we will be studying the book of Galatians. This is an important study for the believers in that it solidifies
our belief and teaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

The last command of Jesus to the church was to “Go”. In order to build ourselves up in our evangelistic efforts we will be teaching on soulwinng and enhancing our outreach efforts. Also we will be study the Life of Paul: the Missionary Apostle. Come join us for this Wednesday night series as we look at the life of the first missionary and use his life to challenge our outreach.

Many of these messages will also be available as MP3s under the media tab on the menu above.

Sonrise Baptist Church offers a church “home” in a confusing and unstable society.  It’s a place where you’ll find relevant Bible preaching with answers for today’s questions. 

You’ll also find a friendly atmosphere and an enthusiastic ministry that welcomes personal growth and fellowship.  No matter what your personal age or background, you’ll feel at home at Sonrise Baptist Church.  Visit us soon!
