With a church plant team consisting of seven adults and three children, Passion launched its first service on Sunday, April 2, 2006 at a home in northeast Albuquerque. Amazingly, sixty-eight people attended the first service and eleven people made decisions for Christ.
Later that evening, Pastor Brian and Mercy went to Presbyterian Hospital where Mercy gave birth to their second child, Colin. Their son was born deaf in one ear, but God miraculously healed him five weeks later—a sign to the Alarid’s that Passion would be a supernatural church.
Over the past 8 years, Passion Church has held services in theaters, schools, and community centers. On May 18, 2014, we moved into our new facility located at 5528 Eubank Blvd. NE. And our bilingual, Christian preschool opens August 2014.
Thousands of people have have dedicated their lives to Christ, marriages have been healed, families have been restored, the sick have been healed, people have grown in their spiritual gifts, new believers have been discipled, leaders have been developed and released into ministry, and the poor have been served both locally and internationally.
Join us on this journey of faith as we become an Acts 2 community. God has done great things, but the best is yet to come!
