About Us

Equipped Church is a community of believers. What does that mean, the word community? We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The Bible speaks about 'iron sharpening iron'. We believe that together we grow stronger. We are a community of believers.

Equipped Church is passionate about being a church 'without walls'. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken and it is there that the lost will be found. Equipped Church makes every effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city, nation and the nations of the world changed through the power of the Gospel of Jesus.

Equipped Church highly values our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We deeply value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.



To make sure that every person in our city, nation and the nations of the world has the chance to hear about the Good News of Jesus' salvation. That with all we do, Jesus is glorified and lives are transformed through Him. That we remain authentic and committed to our incredible call to impact and change the world by sharing this great hope.


Well...to keep it simple...to know Jesus & make Him known, in empowered by the Holy Spirit, reaching the lost and broken with hope, through a church that is equipped & mature, all while impacting our community and world, in partnership with an Apostolic team to reach the ends of the earth.


We deeply value the Bible as God's Word, Jesus as our Lord & Savior and the Holy Spirit as God with us every moment. We value people, as Jesus died for each of us, to give even the worst of us life. We value regular fellowship, as we can't go this alone. We value prayer, since we can't do any of this without God.


1. Equipped Church was launched in October 2022.

2. Chris Smith, the pastor, along with his family moved to the area with a heart to equip God's people to change the world and to reach the lost and broken with the hope of Jesus.

3. Equipped Church is located in Englewood, CO, but began with the vision to impact all the surrounding communities south of Denver.

4. Equipped Church was planted out of Redemption City Church in Westminster, CO and remains in partnership with RCC, as well as with New Covenant Ministries International for accountability, covering and global impact.
