We believe that the Jesus Christ is the focal point of history and the Bible (Luke 24:27, 44; Colossians 1:16; Hebrews 1:1-3). He deserves our respect, love, and obedience since he is the focus of our church’s life. This foundational truth means we have to interpret everything in life about what the entire Bible says about Jesus and his kingdom (1 Corinthians 2:2; Revelation 5:9-10).


Christians need the good news – the Gospel – of Jesus Christ every day of their lives. Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and reign impacts our marriages, works, parenting, relationships, past, future, and the decisions we make (Colossians 2:6). Arapahoe Road never intends to move past the Gospel after we proclaim the Gospel. We need to hear the Gospel every week at church and throughout the week.

Expository Preaching

We believe that God has communicated to us who he is and how we should obey him in the Bible. This means that our preaching and teaching will honestly deal with every word of Scripture that God has given (Nehemiah 8:8). We believe expositional preaching honors God’s Word, as it allows us to hear the “whole counsel of God” (Acts 20:27) in our services. This type of preaching takes God at his Word. Expository preaching focuses on the Gospel of Jesus, God’s final revelation (Hebrews 1:1-3).

Evangelistic Community

We don’t want to keep the good news about salvation in Jesus to ourselves. For this reason, we are committed to telling others about Jesus, the only Savior (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). Around 63% of the residents in the Denver Metro Area do not have any religious affiliation. We strive to be a church community that loves our neighbors in Centennial, Denver Metro, throughout Colorado, and around the world.
