Meet Arise Church Denver:

We’re all about HELPING PEOPLE FOLLOW JESUS. It isn’t just our mission or something we say a lot; it is actually what we are about. It is why we exist. We want to see lives transformed with the good news of Jesus and help people experience the fullest life.

Our church is situated in the Central Park neighborhood of Denver, CO. We have people in our church from all areas of our city, from all walks of life, from different denominations and backgrounds. We own and meet in Hangar 61, an airplane hangar of the old Denver airport.

Our name Arise Church comes from Isaiah 60:1-3, which says:

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”

Everything we do as a church, whether it is our ministries, outreach, or worship services, points people to the light of God. We want to help individuals, our community, and city arise to brighter and better things found in Jesus.

We know that we can’t do everything as a church, but the things we do, we want to do well. Our teaching leads to transformation, our worship is passionate, our groups are filled with vibrant community, our local and global outreach is bold and we are making a big investment in the next generation. We want our ministries, groups, and serve teams to help you and your family follow Jesus as we all help others do the same. You can check out our beliefs and values page for more details about Arise.
