We are a community of believers proud of our past and eagerly looking forward to who God is forming us to be, and what God is calling us to do in the future.

As a caring, intergenerational, and diverse community of faith, inspired by the Holy Spirit, we seek to serve God by living out the good news of Christ, and reflecting that love, grace, and acceptance to our community and world.


It is our desire to reach out to all people to serve them and to help them find God's purpose and comfort for their lives. We provide a variety of worship and learning opportunities, fellowship, and service for our community.


The First Presbyterian Church of Belen was founded in 1964.  The church family has its roots in the German Protestant community that settled in the area in the late 1800s.  The church moved to a desert bluff overlooking the Rio Grande River Valley,  three miles from the original downtown church. 


We are a family of faith, united by trust in God, and Jesus Christ.  We warmly welcome all who accept the incarnation of God in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  One becomes an active member of the church through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and acceptance of his Lordship in all of life.  However, our worship and church activities are provided for members and non-members alike.  The first step to membership is to contact our Pastor.
