Front Range is a place where you can build community, discover purpose, and grow your faith in Jesus.
This is the vision that God has given to Pastor Ernest for what Front Range will look like in the years to come.
The Church I see…
I see a church that expects and seeks God’s power and presence to invade every aspect of one’s life. A church where worship is more than a Sunday morning experience, but is a lifestyle, a pursuit of God’s Spirit interacting with our spirit. I see a church that seeks His Word, expects His power, experiences His miracles, and displays His love.
I see a church transformed by the power of Christ who seeks out the hurting, lost, and far from God; helping them experience the same transformation. A church that sits with the hopeless, loves the unloved, and gives home to the orphaned. I see a church with open arms for the disconnected and disengaged giving them a place to belong. A church that doesn’t judge one’s past or predict one’s future, but loves with God’s love today.
I see a church that listens and empowers one another to grow in faith, develop as leaders and become ambassadors of God’s Kingdom wherever they go. I see a church that defends family and propels generations who are bold in their faith and secure in their convictions. I see a church that unapologetically gives the next generation opportunities to live out their faith and discover who God created them to be.
I see a church that passionately proclaims the Gospel throughout the world through starting new churches. A church that invests resources, develops leaders and sends people to reach Castle Rock, Colorado and around the world through church planting.
I see a church that is the first to run courageously into the darkness to bring the light of Jesus. A church that seeks to rescue those lost and trapped in darkness. A church that is capable, knowledgeable and empowered to do what needs to be done to reach our world, starting with our neighbors, for the glory of God and the redemption of His people.
This is the church I see!

Here at Front Range, we have five values that define who we are and what is most important to us as a church. Those five values are: Authentic Community, Celebrating Family, Contagious Generosity, Development and Deployment, Spiritual Maturity
We believe life is meant to be lived in authentic community on a daily basis with the people God has placed in our lives. This community not only inspires spiritual growth but is attractive to those who do not know Jesus.
(John 13:34-35, Acts 2:42-47, Romans 1:11-12, Romans 12:9-13)
We believe it is our calling to be generous with all that we have. Everything we have and all that we are has been given to us from God, so we approach our time, possessions, and resources with an attitude of stewardship, not ownership. We believe that generosity is contagious, and as we flood our city with the generosity of Christ, others will want to join in!
(Proverbs 11:24, Luke 6:37-38, II Corinthians 9:7, I Timothy 6:17-19)
We believe families are something to be celebrated! Everyone has a family, and whether your family is more “traditional” or something that looks completely different, you matter to us. It’s our hope that you would experience the love, purpose, and growth that God desires for your family.
(Matthew 12:46-50, 1 Timothy 5:8, Romans 12:9-13, John 13:34-35)
We believe God has called each of us to become intentional neighbors with those He has placed in our lives. An intentional neighbor seeks to show the love of God to those in their lives, whether it be literal neighbors, co-workers, family members or people you meet along the way. Being this type of neighbor helps people experience God’s love and will draw them closer to Jesus.
We believe that every believer should be growing in three areas of their spiritual lives: Biblical Knowledge, Holy Obedience, and Spiritual Intimacy. We believe that we should be seeking to grow in these areas every day.
