About Our Church

In 2011, The Filipino Church (TFC) began as a bible study and worship gathering of a few Filipino families in Aurora, Colorado. As more people joined, that small gathering became a Tagalog church service known as Pagsamba sa Wikang Tagalog (Tagalog Worship Expression).

Our Church History

Our History

The Filipino Church (TFC) began in 2011 as a Bible study and worship gathering for a few Filipino families in Aurora, Colorado. As the group grew, it evolved into a Tagalog church service known as Pagsamba sa Wikang Tagalog and was recognized as a church plant by Converge Rocky Mountain. TFC now includes Fil-Americans and their diverse families.

Previously meeting in person in the Denver Metro area, TFC adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic by transitioning to an online church community. In 2020, new ministries were launched to reach Filipinos globally through Facebook and YouTube, with live-stream services in various Filipino languages under LuzViMinda Ministries.

TFC is dedicated to reaching local and global communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ, emphasizing strong relationships and faith-filled expectations. As a Christ-centered church, TFC values stewardship and the use of unique talents and gifts to share God’s Word.

Our Beliefs & Values

Love is a fundamental characteristic of who God is, and an attribute to describe His children.

Jesus makes it clear in the Bible that the two most fundamental commandments are to love God and to love others.

Character

A life of Godly character is noted for its commitment to “Christ-likeness” and to a life based on Christian “principles” – qualities such as integrity, honesty, unselfishness, faithfulness, dependability, humility, forgiveness, and love.

Key Scriptures:
Ephesians 4:20 – 5:2; 1 Corinthians 13:1 – 7 

Respect

We will treat others with respect, valuing their thoughts, creativity, and opinions; considering them worthy of high regard and esteem.

Key Scriptures:
Romans 12:10 ; Philippians 2:3 – 4;
1 Peter 2:17; Matthew 7:12

Servanthood

Jesus Christ has called us all to serve one another in love.

As good servants, we are willing and eager to help others with a joyful attitude.

Key scriptures:
Matthew 20:28; Acts 20:35
Galatians 5:13-14; 1Peter 4:10

Spirituality

We will pursue an intimate relationship with God, keeping
Him central in our lives.

Genuine spirituality is more than mere Bible knowledge, the performance of various religious tasks or certain external behaviors. As we come to know Jesus Christ more intimately, we are transformed into a more loving, joyful, and Christ-like people.

Key Scripture:
1 John 2:6; 1 Peter 2:21

Stewardship

We will be responsible stewards of the resources entrusted to us such as tithes and offerings, acting with integrity and honesty.

Key Scriptures:
Matthew 25:14-30; Luke 12:42-48; Romans 14:12

Accepting Jesus brings hope, love, and purpose. He loves you deeply, offering forgiveness and eternal life. Trust in His guidance through every challenge and joy. With Jesus, you’re never alone; His grace fills you with peace and strength. Take this step in faith and experience His incredible love and salvation.

Rev. Arnold Mapindan Cubos

TFC Lead Pastor

I am the youngest of 13 children, born in Bulakan, Bulacan, Philippines, and raised by devout Catholic parents. As a young man, I developed my musical talent but fell into a destructive lifestyle involving drugs, theft, and violence. During a low point, I asked God to take my life, but He had other plans.

I moved to the US in August 2002, initially dreaming of continuing my destructive lifestyle, but instead became preoccupied with online video games. After more than seven years apart, I brought my wife, Cristy, and daughter, Krizelle, to the US. Our first year together was difficult, and we had many disagreements. Cristy asked to attend a Christian church, so I took her to Bayanihan, a Filipino Christian congregation. In 2010, we began attending Bible studies and Sunday services. On September 19, 2010, during an altar call, I felt touched by the Holy Spirit, repented of my sins, and asked God for forgiveness.

My journey as a follower of Christ began in January 2011. I started attending a new church with a Tagalog ministry called “Pagsamba sa Sariling Wika” and was assigned the role of Worship Leader. One day, I heard a Voice saying, “I am the only One to be worshipped,” which led me to realize my true place in serving God.

I became a new creature in Christ, no longer seeking my own will but God’s. I was led to positions of Elder and Assistant Pastor at The Filipino Church (TFC), eventually becoming the lead pastor in fall 2017. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Theology and Ministry at the South East Asian Theological School in Las Piñas, Philippines. God continues to open doors for me and my family to spread His Word.
