Who We Are

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

(Matthew 28:19)

Our Mission

Sandia Presbyterian is committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ through:

  • Worshipping God
  • Proclaiming the Gospel
  • Studying and Teaching Scripture
  • Sharing God's Love
  • Praying and Changing Lives

Worship

We worship and serve the one eternal, triune God who rules over all and who has revealed himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.   We worship in a variety of different ways in three services on Sunday morning.

Bible

We submit to the teaching of the Bible, which is the written Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and practice.

Good News

We rely on God’s grace that is most clearly revealed in Jesus Christ, who made a full, perfect, and sufficient sacrifice for our sins and the sins of the world on the cross.  The Good News is that Jesus Christ is risen and that we are forgiven and reconciled to God.  We are saved by God’s grace alone.

Christian Life

We recognize that the Christian life is a journey.  Though we belong to Christ, we continue to struggle.  We believe we are all equally guilty of sin and stand in need of grace.  We also realize we need to extend grace to each other as we have received grace from God.

Our History

Sandia Presbyterian Church is a relatively young church.  The church was chartered (making it official) on October 28, 1990.  Rev. Dewey Johnson was the organizing pastor, and he remained with Sandia until October 2009.  Groundbreaking for the existing sanctuary took place on May 31, 1992. The next year 296 people left Dennis Chavez elementary school (the temporary home of SPC) and began worshipping in the current building.  Sandia grew quickly and was at one time the fastest growing church in the Presbyterian Church (USA) denomination.  To accommodate our growing congregation, we have made significant additions to our facility. In April of 2012, Rev. Dr. Doug Hucke became the Senior Pastor.  Sandia Presbyterian continues to thrive as God does amazing things.
