Welcome to Front Range Baptist Missions!

 

We are a Baptist ministry whose goal is taken from Ephesians 2:10, "For we are [God's] workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."

 

It is our desire to help the people of Denver and the surrounding communities know and follow Jesus Christ. Our mission is to spread the Gospel through a variety of outlets and plant churches where people are discipled and taught the full word of God so that they might grow in their knowledge of Him.

 

But seriously, there's enough "Christianity" in America already, isn't there?

 

The short answer to that is "no," and that is because at Front Range Baptist Missions, we want to see all people come to know and accept the Savior that died for them. The slightly longer answer involves contrasting Biblical Christianity to cultural Christianity. For example, a 2017 Pew Research survey found that half of those who describe themselves as highly religious (the vast majority of whom labeled themselves as Christians) believe in at least one New Age belief.1 Such beliefs are either never taught in scripture or are outright commanded by God to avoid.

 

Yet this is reflective of the age we live in, where much of the Christian's knowledge about his or her faith is a mile wide and an inch deep. One of the main defenses against this error is a more complete knowledge of God's word, an understanding of sin and its inevitable consequences, and the ability to apply scripture in one's daily life.

 

When we grow in our knowledge of God, we grow in our understanding of how God wants us to live and how He wants us to live for Him. With our small ministry, we hope to help in that process.

 

Come and see (John 1:39)!

Why Colorado?

 

    • Colorado is one of the fastest growing states.

    • Why Denver and the Metro Area?
    •  
    • Denver is one of the fastest growing cities in the US.
    • More than 3 million people reside in the Denver metro area. 3
      • This includes Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson counties.3
      • When the northern Colorado counties of Larimer and Weld are included, the population exceeds 3.6 million.3
    • Denver has a younger population, as the average age is 37.3
    • Denver has a highly educated population. In the metro area alone, 45.8 percent of adults have earned at least a bachelor's degree. 4
      • A 2017 Pew Research survey found that of individuals with some college coursework, only 53 percent profess to believe in the God of the Bible; of those individuals with a college degree, only 45 percent believe in the God of the Bible.5
      • This same survey also reported that just 33 percent of college graduates believe that God "determines all or most of what happens in their lives."5
