What is the gospel of Jesus Christ?
The word gospel means “good news.” We need good news because there is bad news. God created men, women, boys and girls to love and obey His Son, King Jesus. But none of us has done that; instead we do what we want to do. This rebellion makes God angry and provokes Him to punish us. That’s the bad news.
But God is also merciful and gracious. He has provided an escape from punishment in a striking way — through the death of His Son. Jesus became a man almost two thousand years ago. He obeyed God perfectly — the only human ever to do that. But then God punished Jesus as He hung on a cross and died as though He was the rebel. Three days later, He came back to life. And the good news is that God has promised to forgive everyone who believes in the death and resurrection of Jesus and who serves Jesus as their King. Jesus became a substitute, taking the punishment for our sins.
To gain this substitution for yourself, you must believe that you have sinned against God and deserve punishment. You must believe that Jesus was the substitution God provided for your sins, and that God punished Jesus in your place and raised Him from the dead, and that He is King of the universe. If you believe this, you will be saved from God’s punishment. That’s the Good News!

What is baptism?
Baptism is how a person expresses that he or she believes the gospel. It is a picture of death and resurrection, of coming to Jesus dirty and becoming perfectly clean through faith in His death and resurrection. It is a testimony to Jesus that a person trusts in Him for salvation. God wants all believers to profess their faith through baptism, as close to conversion as possible.
Why give financially to the church?
Our participation in the church involves the stewardship of all our resources, including our talents, time, money and possessions. Finances are one of God’s gifts to us, which are also to be used for the strengthening of the church. We are called to give generously to the work and ministry of the church.

How can I connect with people?
What is MyFRAC Community?
As part of the Front Range Alliance Church family, you are welcome to use and become part of our online community (MyFRAC Community). When you log in, you will be able to see your own profile information including the groups in which you are participating and the serving positions you hold. You can access your giving record, explore events you might be interested in, easily communicate with other members, and so much more! You can update your profile information to make sure our records are correct and allow other people in the community to get to know you better.
What is your worship service like?
We exalt Jesus through singing Christ-centered songs, praying, remembering Christ’s sacrifice through communion, and preaching Christ expositionally from God’s Word.
We choose songs carefully, based on how faithful they are to Scripture, how Christ-centered they are, and how helpful they are for worshiping Christ and encouraging His people. Much of our repertoire will be newer and current songs, but we will not abandon the old, rich hymns.
Our goal is to lead God’s people to worship and adore Jesus and to proclaim His glory and grace. He alone is worthy of our praise!
How does Front Range Alliance Church approach communion?
We traditionally serve communion on the first Sunday of each month. We invite all who have placed their faith in Jesus to participate whether you are a member or not.
