Ever since that day when Jesus stood before His disciples and commissioned them to tell the story of His gift of Salvation to all who would believe, His story has captured the hopes and hearts of people. The pastors, teachers and members of the Texico Conference are fully committed to the mission of sharing this Good News about Jesus with everyone. The anticipation of seeing Him in person draws us forward with a growing sense of urgency and we invite you to join with us in this journey of faith.
What We Believe
28 Fundamental Beliefs
Adventists believe a Trinity of three persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – make up one God. They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father’s will. When Jesus was crucified for the sins of the people of the world and arose from the dead on the third day, victory was won for everyone.
When He returned to heaven following the resurrection, Jesus left the Holy Spirit to serve as our Comforter and Counselor. He promised to return to earth a second time to complete His plan of salvation and take His people to heaven.Adventists are among the believers who look forward to that day. Adventists believe that God is concerned with the quality of human life, and that everything – the way we live, eat, speak, think, treat each other, and care for the world around us – is part of His plan. Our families, our children, our jobs, our talents, our money, and our time are all important to Him.

A Brief History
We are dedicated to loving people through Jesus!
The Texico Conference is the headquarters for the Seventh-day Adventist churches of West Texas and New Mexico, providing departmental and ministerial resources to approximately 12,150 members and pastors of our 80 churches.
It was organized in New Mexico in 1908 and West Texas in 1909, then was consolidated in 1916. It encompasses New Mexico (except San Juan County) and that portion of Texas north and west of the eastern line of Callahan, Concho, Foard, Hardeman, Haskell, Jones, Knox, Runnels, Schleicher, Sutton, and Terrell Counties and north of the south line of Crockett County. Our unique conference spans a diverse people. The territory covers the cotton fields and oil wells of western Texas through New Mexico’s Native American pueblo’s and dramatic high-altitude mountain desert scenery. As individual believers unite together and organize into a local church, so local churches unite together and organize into a conference. It is the practice of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination that when numerous churches are organized in a geographic territory, they are then united together as a conference or mission to facilitate the advancement of the church in that geographic territory. The Texico Conference is a cooperative organization bound together for the mutual purpose of preaching the gospel of salvation.
