Sonrise Baptist Church was founded in 1974 by Pastor Ron Croft under the name of Southwest Bible Baptist Church. In 1977 the Lord provided the property where the church currently meets and is now pastored by Eli Perez. As the Lord brought more people, the buildings and property were developed to meet the needs of a growing church.

Through the years Sonrise Baptist Church has been able to minister to our community in a greater way. With that in mind, Sonrise Baptist Church was led by the Lord to begin a Spanish Ministry in 2008.

Sonrise Baptist Church has not wavered in it's desire to impact the southwest side of Tucson since its founding date. Our prayer is that God would use us to impact our community with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
