But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:9 American KJV)
Accepting this as our calling, we decided to put our shoulder to the plow and not look back. We paid no attention to the circumstances or obstacles that might discourage us. As we considered Denver, a city with approximately 5,000 Brazilians living in it, this wasn't just a desire we felt, but considered it a responsibility to allow ourselves to be used as instruments in the hands of the Lord to proclaim His virtues and greatness.
When we gave birth to our New Generation Christian Community, it was born with lots of goals and purposes in our hearts. But the main one was to make our church available, not just to Brazilians, but to all people who genuinely desire to worship in the name of the Lord Jesus. We want everyone to recognize that we are a “new generation” in Christ Jesus.
We are a church associated with the Mile High Baptist Association. You can learn about what we believe in our Declaration of Faith. Our church services are a true celebration to the Lord. We sing, we honor, and we express our gratitude for everything that He has done. Our teaching of God's Word is not compromised whatsoever by any political system, personal interests, partners, or supporters. We are entirely committed to God and His Holy Word.
Even though we are associated with the Baptist Convention, like any church in the denomination, the New Generation Christian Community is an autonomous church, not subject to, or subordinate to, any specific group, family, or person. So our objective is not to raise denominational flags but to raise up the name of Christ as the head and provider of His Church. In the same way, our church wasn't created for the “Holier than thou” Christians but for everyone who recognizes a need to corporately seek the presence of God as well as to receive spiritual and pastoral assistance. As Jesus said to the Scribes and Pharisees, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Luke 5:31-32 NIV) So, come worship Christ without feeling judged. You are totally welcome and independently accepted by those present in our church services.
When you come to visit, let's leave our differences at the foot of the cross and feel free to worship and celebrate the victory of Christ. We believe, even if you enter unhappy, you will leave feeling joyous. If you come feeling spiritually empty, you will leave full of God and fed by his powerful Holy Word. We are waiting for your precious visit. Make this your church in Colorado.
God Bless You!
