Our church began in 1988 as a cooperative effort of five Southern Baptist churches in the Albuquerque area. These congregations, the Plains Association of the Baptist Convention of New Mexico, and the North American Mission Board provided funds two years to enable the congregation to begin.
The congregation began with ten people meeting in homes for Bible Study. In December 1988, the congregation moved into 1,500 square feet of space in Montano Plaza Shopping Center on Coors Boulevard. Then in January 1990, the congregation moved into more space (5,100 square feet) in Montano Plaza.
In March 1990, the group constituted into a church beginning with 60 members. In August 1990, Dr. Tim Marrow was called as pastor of the church. In October 1990, the Central Baptist Association, deeded to the church four acres of land in the community of Taylor Ranch. In 1996 we began building our current facilities at 6400 Golf Course. From 2013 to 2016, Dr. Adam Hughes served as pastor. In August 2017, Stephen Baum was called as pastor.

Set in the heart of one of Albuquerque’s largest west side suburbs, we have a strong heartfelt desire to reach the families and people of our neighborhood with the Gospel of Christ, helping them grow in faithful obedience to God’s Word and going on mission with that Gospel to the world.
