First Baptist Church Mancos

Mancos, Colorado

Description

1st Baptist Church of Mancos, is a loving, spirit-filled body of believers that trust the Bible is the inerrant Word of GOD. We are born again Christians with servant hearts, committed to one another as we strive to reach the lost in our community and surrounding areas by sharing the gospel of our Lord and Savior JESUS CHRIST.

The church has served the community (primarily farming, ranching, & mining) for over 75 years. We currently have members from surrounding communities as well as Mancos. Our congregation (mainly seniors) has slowly dwindled over the years from what once averaged 100+ regular attenders. We have a strong desire to reach the unsaved in Mancos with a focus on young families through programs such as Friday Kidz JAM "Jesus and Me", community BBQ's, a thriving summer VBS, and weekly prayer meetings. With the Holy Spirit's help, we endeavor to be more like JESUS each and every day.

The town of Mancos (population 2,901) is located on Hwy. 160 midway between Cortez and Durango. We belong to the Mesa Verde Baptist Association which consists of 25 churches in southwest Colorado (area population 98,500).
