The history of our church is one of dedication and transition under God's faithfulness. Throughout its life, the aim has been to glorify God in the salvation of souls and in the edification of its members with God's Word.reeds

Joined together in 1937 as First Bible Presbyterian Church of Denver, the first congregation consisted of believers from the United Presbyterian Church and Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

After years of moving about, the church assumed its present location with a new building in Wheat Ridge on March, 1955. A dedication followed in October with Dr. Robert G. Rayburn presiding. The first pastor was W. Harold Mare, who later went on to be a professor at Covenant College.

Since then, through difficult and prosperous times, faithful pastors and notable speakers have represented the gospel of Christ in this church body. A few of those men include Oliver Juliusson (1960s and 1970s), Homer Fernandez (1970s), Ronald Shaw (1980s), Jim Talarico (1990s), Evan Hock (2000-08), Intrim Bob Stuart (2008-2009), Kevin Carroll (2010-2012), and Pastor Joe Puglia (2013-present).

One notable visitor who came to give his personal testimony was General Mitsuo Fuchida, known infamously for leading the Japanese air attack on Pearl Harbor. After the war, he had converted to the Christian faith.

Through the years the church not only changed in leadership, but changed in name and church affiliation. For years, it existed as a Bible Presbyterian Church. Later on, it joined the Reformed Presbyterian Church Evangelical Synod and was renamed Covenant Reformed Presbyterian Church. Now, by the grace of God, the church thrives as Covenant Presbyterian Church, a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, formed in 1973.
