About Us

Nucla First Baptist Church was founded in 1949 and has faithfully met at the same location since 1953.  We are in association with the Uncompahgre Baptist Association, the Colorado Baptist General Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention.

The Vision of Nucla FBC is to see every man, woman and child in Nucla and the surrounding area come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.  Through loving relationships, honesty and sound Biblical teaching, 

Loving Relationships:    Relationships are crucial to making disciples.  We can not gain the trust of people if we will not take the time to build relationships.  We can look at all of Paul’s letters and see how important relationships were.    

Honesty:  As a follower of Christ honesty is a must.  We can not effectively reach this community if we are not honest in our dealings on a daily basis.  Paul tells Timothy “Watch your life and doctrine closely.  Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save yourself and your hearers.”  (1 Timothy 4:16)  Living an honest life will always be a witness to the world around us.

Sound Biblical Teaching:  Everything we do is based on the Bible.  If our teaching is not we will damage relationships and be seen as dishonest in the eyes of the world.  Paul tells Timothy;  “All scripture is God breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work .”  (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Our Pastor

David Smith and his wife Tracy served as the Pastor of Nucla FBC from August 1, 2010 to May 29, 2022.  God has called David & Tracy on to a new ministry in the state of Colorado.  We are sad to see them go but excited for the future that God has for them and for Nucla FBC.

Please be praying for our church as we begin the process of searching for the man that God has prepared to be the next pastor at Nucla.
