Our Story

First Southern began as a small missionary effort by Southern Baptists in Canon City. It was their goal then and our goal now to be a witness for Jesus Christ and to share the Gospel Message to as many people as possible.

First Southern exists to announce the good news of the gospel that Jesus died, was buried and rose again for the forgiveness of sin. We believe salvation is received by faith in Jesus and His death on the cross and not achieved through man's work nor participation in religious sacraments. Jesus succinctly summarized salvation with His ageless words, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16 ESV) If you are not sure of your faith relationship with Christ, please contact us at 719.275.2303.

Interested in becoming a Church Member?

We believe that every follower of Jesus Christ should seek to join a local, gospel-teaching church where they can worship and exalt God, experience true fellowship and accountability, and use their spiritual gifts to engage in service. If you would like to become a member of First Southern, please contact the Pastor. He will set up a time to speak with you and answer any question you may have.
