Know Jesus, Live in the Spirit, Join in the Father's Work

We are a congregation rooted in God’s Son, Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:6-7). Founded in 1881, we have experienced the highs and lows of being a congregation for over 125 years. We believe that God has never failed to show himself faithful to us no matter the circumstances. In response to God’s faithfulness, along with our desire to be followers of Jesus Christ and live in the presence of the Holy Spirit, we come every Sunday to celebrate, sing praises, give thanks, confess our sins, and learn what God has for us to do at “such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). We at First Presbyterian Church of Durango seek to be a caring family of believers united by our committment to Jesus Christ and guided by the Scriptures which reflect the grace of God in human life. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we will live out our faith through a commitment to:
  • Vital worship and prayer
  • Ministering to and caring for one another as family members
  • Ministering to and caring for our community and the world
  • Encouraging personal, spiritual growth
  • Proclaiming the Good News of God’s love to one and all
  • Inviting all to accept Jesus Christ as Savior
  • Caring for our spiritual and physical heritage
  • Welcoming everyone to worship and pray with us

We are a part of the PCUSA and affiliated with the Presbytery of Western Colorado.
