Canyon Bible Church is a community with the desire to live passionately in accordance with the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Mark 12:30 & 31 "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength...you shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these." (NASB)
Canyon Bible Church is an independent, reformed church in Tijeras, NM (an East Mountain Community east of Albuquerque). Canyon Bible Church began worship services in December 2010. In December 2011 Canyon Bible Church was incorporated as a New Mexico non-profit corporation and was determined by the IRS to be exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to Canyon Bible Church are tax deductible under section 170 of the Code.
Canyon Bible Church is a community that practices integrated services. During the message there is no separation of age groups therefore the adults and children worship together. As a congregation it is known that young children may become distracting and need some time out away from the general worship center. If this occurs the message is recorded and can fill in any missed lectures. However, members have employed simple diversion techniques (drawing, coloring or playing with quiet toys) and are certainly acceptable ways provide a pleasant environment for all. As a congregation, we all accept and share in the responsibility for monitoring and helping our children grow to love God. Worshipping together allows children to observe adults in sincere worship as well as developing compassion and patience in all members as we help and encourage one another along our journey.
The vision for the Church is to preach, teach, and practice worshiping God in spirit and in truth.
To worship in truth means that the essence of true worship is an inner act of the heart treasuring God as infinitely valuable.
Such worship in every phase of life leads to loving God and enjoying Him. It also leads to delight in being obedient to Him
especially as summarized by Paul in Philippians 2:12-13: "Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not
only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in
you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure." (NKJV)
