our mission: proclaiming the mystery of Christ

The mission of Church of the Resurrection is to see the people of Arvada encounter Jesus and be reconciled to one another as we pray, worship, serve, proclaim the Gospel, and promote justice, peace, and love. Our mission allow us to be locally focused as well as globally connected.

Locally Focused

On the one hand, "the church in your neighborhood, has always been the primary location for getting the way and truth and life of Jesus believed and embodied in the places and among the people with whom we most have to do day in and day out" (Eugene Peterson). On the other hand, our church is only part of God's work in Arvada. We are actively building partnerships with other local churches and ministries that proclaim Jesus as Lord. We strongly believe in the importance of maintaining the unity of the body of Christ across ethnic, economic, and denominational lines. Not only does our diocese partner with other churches, but we are also connected to the Colorado Anglican Society. These networks are committed to supporting one another in mission, fellowship, and prayer.

Globally Connected

As part of Churches for the Sake of Others, Church of the Resurrection is part of the Anglican Church in North America which unites 112,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico into a single Church.  ACNA is also a recognized province within the global Anglican Communion. These connections allow us to partner with leaders, churches, and communities all over the world.
