Las Cruces First Assembly of God

At Las Cruces First Assembly of God, we are a church that believes in celebrating life and connecting people to a loving God. We have a variety of ministries to serve your entire family. From children and youth, to Life Groups and Bi-lingual (Spanish and English) services, we have a vision to see people build relationships with each other and with God.


Services include uplifting contemporary worship, a Bible-based teaching, and opportunities to grow or begin your walk with Jesus Christ. On Sunday mornings, our main worship service and Life Groups are at 9:00 and 10:45 am. We also offer a mid-week family service on Wednesdays at 7 pm with a variety of great programs for every age. Also, don’t forget to ask about our many Life Groups that meet throughout the week at various locations in the city. We look forward to seeing you!
