The Artesia Group was started by three families from the Roswell Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Church who were looking to connect with the New Mexico towns of Dexter, Artesia and other neighboring communities that did not have an Adventist church presence. The Artesia Group is quickly growing and has been granted Company status within the Texico Conference family. It actively conducts Bible Studies, and it is in the process of forming a Pathfinder and Adventurer club. Weekly services are bilingual and simultaneously translated from Spanish to English. The Artesia Company’s mission is to make disciples for Jesus through biblical training, loving fellowship, and service for their community. They are a caring community of believers, that would like to extend the love of Christ to every individual in Artesia, Dexter and the surrounding areas.
