Our story

Mt. Rose Bible Church began its existence in June of 1973. Five years later the church was renamed Mt. Rose Evangelical Free Church. What began as a handful of Christians meeting in a ranch house has now become a church meeting in the midst of Reno’s southern suburbs. 

We are a people eager to pursue the work that the Lord is doing in our place and time. That means being faithfully present where we are. But we are also a people who believe that the Lord's work in our place and time is the work he has been doing in all places and times, namely, saving a people for his own glory. That means being faithful to what Christians have always believed. 

God's great work of salvation (what Christians know of as The Gospel) is our story. It is a story of great love, great grace, great forgiveness, and great reconciliation. It is a story which continues each Lord's Day as we gather. And it is a story large enough for you to be a part of. Whether you're new to the Reno area, new to Christianity, or just passing through either, please consider yourself welcome to explore the story of salvation with us.
