Our Beliefs & Values
We are affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America which is an is an association and fellowship of autonomous and interdependent churches united around the same Statement of Faith.
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.
We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.
The Human Condition
We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus—Israel’s promised Messiah—was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
The Work of Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He convicts the world of its guilt. He regenerates sinners, and in Him they are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs in the family of God. He also indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.
We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace through faith alone in Christ alone. They are united by the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ, of which He is the Head. The true church is manifest in local churches, whose membership should be composed only of believers. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer.
We believe that God’s justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed.
We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of our Lord Jesus Christ. The coming of Christ, at a time known only to God, demands constant expectancy and, as our blessed hope, motivates the believer to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.
Response and Eternal Destiny
We believe that God commands everyone everywhere to believe the gospel by turning to Him in repentance and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that God will raise the dead bodily and judge the world, assigning the unbeliever to condemnation and eternal conscious punishment and the believer to eternal blessedness and joy with the Lord in the new heaven and the new earth, to the praise of His glorious grace. Amen.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
– John 3:16

Frequently Asked Questions
Is child care available during services?
Yes, childcare is available for all children 10 and younger.
Is there a livestream option for Sunday Services?
Yes, we stream both our 9AM and 11AM service on YouTube and Facebook. The stream begins 10 minutes before the start of service.
What can I expect at a Sunday Service with respect to COVID-19?
Get here a little early – With our worship center at limited capacity, showing up a few minutes early is a good idea. Plenty of overflow seating is provided in other areas of the church.
Cleaning – The entire church is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before and after each service.
Masks: Do I have to wear one? The State of New Mexico has required that we wear masks. We’re not exempt from that. We’re asking and encouraging you to do so. Staff and Elders will wear masks outside of public speaking segments in the service. We would ask you to consider others in context of Romans 14 https://www.biblegateway.com/
Kids: Should my kids wear a mask? Babies and toddlers should not! That is far more hazardous than it is safe for them. The degree of expectation should match the degree of maturity. What’s reasonable for a 15 year-old is different than a 5 year-old.
Kids and Noise: Without children’s church, I’m concerned my kid will make noise. I’ll ease your fears, they’ll definitely make noise, and it will be awesome! We expect that and it’s ok!
→We have set up the Multi-Purpose Room to be more flexible for families and close access to changing table, bathroom, etc.
Sanitation: There is plenty of hand-sanitizer and disinfectant. We will disinfect the building before and after services. Doors will be open and remain open through the service.
Social Distancing: The chairs are already set up for this so that you don’t have to figure out the appropriate distancing.
Temperature check: The State asks that people test themselves before coming to church. We’re asking you to do this before coming to church.
