Our community is unique in that so many people come from all over northern New Mexico to work here at LANL—from Chama to Belen and beyond. One of the things lacking in our community is a Christian-based school, which parents might opt to utilize should they feel moved to do so. 

Not infrequently, parents—Catholic and not—have queried us as to whether we might one day start a school here at IHM for this purpose.

Pastor Raul Granillo: We Are Christian

The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. (NIV, Acts 11:26)

In the Nazarene Church, one of our core values is that we are a Christian church. Let me be clear to begin with, there are many Christian churches that bring many beautiful, and distinctive characteristics to God’s Church. We have differences, but we are bound by some common beliefs that make us Christian. So, what is a Christian?

The short answer is simply that a Christian is a person who puts their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.
