I'm New


Welcome to St. James Episcopal Church!

Thank you for your interest in St James Episcopal Church! We are one of the oldest Protestant churches in southern New Mexico, with a colorful history and long record of service to our parishioners and the community in Dona Ana County.  We invite you to peruse our website to discover more about this wonderful church community.

At St. James we are a welcoming community of Christians who gather for family worship in the Anglican Liturgical Tradition, to study the Word of God, to learn through excellent Bible preaching, and to serve the world with the love and truth of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  Come and see!

In the Episcopal church, there is a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God's love for every human being.  People of every kind serve as bishops, priests, deacons, lay ministers, and acolytes.

“Being a Christian is not essentially about joining a church or being a nice person, but about following in the footsteps of Jesus, taking his teachings seriously, letting his Spirit take the lead in our lives, and in so doing helping to change the world from our nightmare into God’s dream.”
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
