When folks began moving into what is now Pueblo West, Colorado, there were only a few options for church attendance. Our community began when people from a variety of Christian backgrounds and church affiliations found themselves coming together for Sunday Worship. With the help of the American Baptists and the Presbyterians, The Ecumenical Church of Pueblo West was formed in 1972. In the Apostles' Creed folks say "We believe in one holy Catholic (universal or ecumenical) Church." We live that out.

The Ecumenical Church has a wonderful mix of backgrounds and theologies. It reflects the whole Body of Christ, which is what we are:   honoring all beliefs and all people where everyone is welcome!
