We're so glad you've found our website! Get a feel for who we are, what we believe, and how we can help you connect with God and His people.
Our hope for you is simple. That you would BELIEVE in Christ. That you would BELONG to His body. That you would BE CHANGED through His word by the Spirit. And that we would BE SENT out together on gospel mission. All for God's glory and our great joy!
We'd love to have you join us soon. We gather together for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:15 AM and have other opportunities to get involved throughout the week. We hope you'll come visit us here in Las Cruces and get to know us better!
We're not too cool for Sunday School. We offer classes for all ages on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM. These classes give us a chance to equip God's people with training for life.
Our children and youth are being taught from an outstanding God-centered curriculum called "Treasuring Christ" on Sunday mornings. Topics for adults include everything from singleness and the glory of God to basic Bible study skills, from having hope amid suffering to marriage and parenting. Adults can typically choose between 2-3 different class options on Sunday mornings. Our classes are a great venue for learning God's word, growing in our ability to connect the gospel to everyday issues, and meeting new friends.
Worship is about living our whole lives for the pleasure and glory of God. But our worship is also expressed in a unique way as we gather together and sing to our Savior. "I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live." (Psalm 104:33)
At First EFC, our desire is to create an atmosphere that invites and inspires people from all ages and backgrounds to worship God. We strive to praise the Lord with music that is Biblical, stirring, and blended to include a variety of music and songwriting by Christians old and new.
If you're a musician or enjoy audio/visual arts and are interested in joining our worship team, please contact Elliot Bergsagel through the church office.
We gather together for the magnification and worship of God and the building up of His people (1 Peter 4:10-11). One of the primary ways this happens is hearing God's word with a constant focus on the gospel (the "good news" about Jesus!). It is in the gospel that we most clearly see the glory of God as revealed in Christ and are transformed by the work of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:18, 4:4). Our practice of expository preaching moves through whole books of the Bible, focusing on Scripture's presentation of who God is and what He's done for us in Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 2:1-2). We want to respond to the Lord in faith and obedience. May you be encouraged, challenged, equipped, and changed by the Spirit through the preaching of God's word. "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." (Colossians 3:16)
