Our Story

 

Our church has a rich history since it’s beginning in 1950. It was started as “Temple Baptist” from ParkHill Baptist Church (then on Pueblo’s East side). In those days before the bridges were built, many members on the southside of town would be late or would miss church altogether because of the trains.
 
In order to remove barriers to people following Jesus, a group of people launched Temple Baptist Church. God has used this church over the years to reach many people with the life changing message of the Gospel. As our culture has changed, new barriers were identified and so another season of ministry has begun.

 

On September 1, 2019, our church re-launched as “The Avenue Church” in efforts to remove as many barriers as possible to people knowing and following Jesus.  While we haven’t changed any of our core beliefs or associations, we are intentionally reaching outward to invite those far from God to come near to hear the Good News of Jesus!  Our desire is to hold up Jesus and boldly and clearly call others to follow Him with all of their lives. 

In a nutshell, that’s our story, what’s yours???  We would love to hear from you and see how we can encourage you in your next step following Jesus.
