Welcome to Sonrise Church, our goal is to prayerfully seek to develop all aspects of our ministry according to the holy scripture, which we recognize as our only source of authority.

Here at SonRise, we are striving to live our lives so others meet Jesus. This may look a little differently for each one of us, but ultimately we want to live lives that honor God and draw people to him. Take a look at our Core Values and you will see what truly drives us. We actively partner with other churches and organizations in our community to make it a better place to live. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, and maintain partnerships with churches in the Baptist Convention of Maryland and Delaware. We believe that none of us are perfect, but in spite of that, God loves all of us and wants more for our lives. This is why we proclaim and acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, the Holy Spirit as our teacher, and the Father as our Source. We acknowledge that the Word of God is the infallible guide to all matters of faith, discipline, and practice.

History of SonRise Church Princess Anne

Pastor Mark was led by the Lord to SonRise Church to take part in the church’s multi-site strategy of “more of us in more places reaching more people for Jesus”.  He has a heart for the town of Princess Anne and Somerset County, having been raised there.  At the same time, SonRise Church was praying about the future home of their next church plant.  By the grace of God, SonRise Church Princess Anne, the 3rd multi-site SonRise campus, began meeting for Sunday worship at Washington High School in Princess Anne, MD on October 9, 2016. This happened on the same day as a tropical storm! Prior to launch, for a year, life groups were meeting in Princess Anne, as well as, people from our campus were serving and building relationships within the community thru various outreach events. In the first year of our campus, 23 first time decisions for Christ occurred, with many baptisms as well!  Our campus is committed to this community and looks forward too may more years to come, as we Connect to Jesus, Grow to be more like Jesus and Share the hope of Jesus with others in Princess Anne and beyond!
