"Made for spirituality, we wallow in introspection. Made for joy, we settle for pleasure. Made for justice, we clamor for vengeance. Made for relationship, we insist on our own way. Made for beauty, we are satisfied with sentiment. Raise us up! Renew our lives! Resurrect our dreams! Through Jesus Christ our Living Savior"
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
"They were devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer." Acts 2:42
Your beauty should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. 1 Peter 3:4

As we transition into new space: Worship services on Sunday mornings are held in our Worship House across the street from the lot at 200 Church Street. We have been advised by experts in construction that the former Sanctuary built in the 1940s could no longer be used for services. Our Building Committee is working with engineers, architects and contractors during a rebuilding process. Through the efforts of our loyal and dedicated membership we have begun a new chapter in our church history. Come join us while we cheerfully continue services in our temporary location.

We are located directly behind the old location of Cornerstone Bakery Cafe (from Sudderth Dr.). Our buildings are on the corner of Thomas B. Dr. and Church Dr.

Our Church Address is:

220 Junction Rd.

Ruidoso, NM 88345


Dr. Darrell Coats, Interim Pastor


Office Hours: 9:30-5:50 p.m. Monday-Thursday
