Located in the heart of the San Luis Valley in southern rural Colorado, we are a congregation of ordinary people trying to live our lives like Jesus Christ. We do not claim to be perfect but rather a group of believers dedicated to learning, worshipping, serving, and growing in our walk with God.
Our church family is a loving and close-knit group of Christians trying our best to live for Christ. We are striving each day to let God’s Word be our guide for everything we do—in everyday life, at work, at school, at home. . . everywhere.
Our Christian faith is not left just for Sunday. It is the foundation for every relationship and all the events of everyday life. We believe our faith should make a profound impact on our lives, including our marriages, families, jobs, resources, and decisions.
We are a diverse group of believers that are from many different locations across the San Luis Valley, but we share a common love for Jesus Christ and His church and look for opportunities to share that love with others.
Maybe you have realized there is a void in your life. Or, maybe you are new to the community and are looking for a church family to call home. No matter your particular journey, this is a perfect opportunity to visit and to connect with Christians in this area. It will be a non-threatening environment, and you won’t be singled out or made to feel uncomfortable in any way. Come as you are and join us for this simple service where we’ll reflect on what Jesus Christ has to say to our lives.
We’d love to see you soon. We’ve saved you a seat!
- We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
- We believe in the God of the Bible, who created the world, as described in Genesis chapter one. We believe that this creation speaks of His existence (Psalm 19). To the extent that man is without excuse (Romans 1:20).
- We believe in the triune nature of the Godhead; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17).
- We believe that man is a part of God’s creation (Genesis 1:26-27). And our purpose is to be pleasing to Him (2 Corinthians 5:9), to honor and to bring Him glory (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). To declare His praises (1 Peter 2:9).
- We believe that sin separated man from God (Genesis 3):
- And that sin continues to separate us from God (Isaiah 59:1-2).
- The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
- There is a wide gate and broad path that leads to destruction and many choose it (Matthew 7:13).
- We believe that we are saved from that sin by God’s grace (Ephesians 2:8). We also believe that man must have a faith response to that grace which involves:
- Hearing the gospel message that produces faith (Romans 10:14-17).
- Believing that message (John 3:16; Hebrews 11:6)
- Confessing that belief (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:10)
- Repenting of the sin that separates (Luke 13:3-5; Acts 2:38 & 17:30)
- Being buried with Christ in baptism (Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38 Romans 6:3-4)
- Remaining faithful to His cause (2 Timothy 4:7-8; Revelation 2:10)
- We believe that when we are saved, God adds us to the church (Acts 2:47). And that the church is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23), God's spiritual “Forever Family” on earth (1 Timothy 3:15) over which Christ serves as Head (Colossians 1:18).
- We believe in the oneness of the body (Ephesians 4:4-6) and the need to assemble in order to encourage one another (Hebrews 10:24-25).
- We believe that our lives are to demonstrate with conviction:
- Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior (Acts 2:36)
- Love is the greatest command (Ephesians 5:1-2; 1 Corinthians 13:13)
- Unity is the desire and responsibility of every believer (John 17:23)
- Service to others is evidence of God's love (Matthew 25:40)
Not A Denomination
We are not interested in man-made creeds, but simply in the New Testament pattern. We do not conceive of ourselves as being a denomination but simply as members of the church which Jesus established and for which he died. In other words, we consider ourselves Christians.
And that, incidentally, is why we wear his name. The term "church of Christ" is not used as a denominational designation, but rather as a descriptive term indicating that the church belongs to Christ.
We recognize our own personal shortcomings and weaknesses--and this is all the more reason for wanting to carefully follow the all-sufficient and perfect plan God has for the church.
