According to church records, Adventist mission work in Hot Springs, NM began in 1916 when the town was incorporated. At the time, Hot Springs was known for its hot mineral baths. However, in the early 1950s, Hot Springs changed its name as a gimmick to promote a popular game show called Truth or Consequences. Years later, starting in 1972, Pastor Joe Reynolds helped build part of the current Truth or Consequences Seventh-day Church. The original church building only measured 12 x 20ft, but the Truth or Consequences church has continued to grow and has expanded their facility. The church loves to worship, fellowship with one another, and minister to the community.
