“In 1977, God called us to start a church in El Paso and teach people how to live the abundant life that Jesus came to give us.” – Pastor Charles Nieman

Our mission is to reach people far from God, teach people how to live a better life through applying God’s Word, and to make a difference in our community. We believe church should be a place where people of all backgrounds can gather and worship God freely, grow in the knowledge of God’s Word, be encouraged in their faith, develop positive relationships with fellow believers, and be empowered to share God’s love with others. We believe that life is bigger than ourselves and that our faith in Christ compels us to serve others. Jesus’ command in Matthew 25 is built into the DNA of our church – we feed the hungry, clothe the poor and visit those in prison.

Our mission is based on these core scriptures:
John 10:10 – The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.

Romans 8:31 – What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Matthew 25:34-36 – Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
