Our vision is to see people Alive in Christ and Alive for Others!
It all started with these words...
“I have a dream; God’s dream. I’m dreaming of a people committed to the Master. That is, a people who are personally intent upon his purposes and bringing them about on the earth. A people who are so occupied with obeying the Lord’s specific instructions to them that they do not have time to be involved in another’s business not their own or petty things such as gossip, back biting, putting others down, criticism, etc. But, their time is spent going about the task the Master has given them: the sharing of Christ’s love and life to those they come in contact with and expanding that love and life to the world. I’m dreaming of a well-functioning body of believers harkening unto the voice of the Captain of Hosts, establishing His kingdom rule upon the earth and in the lives of others, and these communities to spring up around the world. A people that so love that it transcends all barriers of race, culture, prejudices, and differences; allowing Christ’s life to flow freely to others and allowing Christ, Himself to express Himself freely in these communities through their cultures., customs and race, etc. A people who not only say Christ is the answer, but show Him forth as the answer in a multitude of simple ways: giving of food, time disciplining, and teaching others to read; for them to live is Christ and the accomplishing of His mission.
I have a dream of that people being the believers of Church Alive! Of them taking God’s grace and letting it flow around the world through them: their lives, their time, their whole hearts committed to the completing of God's mission."
Our mission is to see people Reaching, Restoring, Renewing, and Reproducing in the lives of other people through the power of Jesus Christ...

Find out about the history of Church Alive!
In late 1992, the Lord began to deal with Pastor Mike about being a Senior Pastor. In May of 1994, both Pastors Mike and Sheri resigned their ministry position. Six months later, they started Church Alive! Basically it began with Pastor Mike and Sheri, their two children, and one car (with an enormous truck). After a little time in the first location (an east side hotel), the Holy Spirit impressed Pastor Mike to cross the river and begin the church in the northwest area of Albuquerque. The Lord blessed Pastors Mike and Sheri and Church Alive! for following what the Lord had placed on their heart by producing a miracle for a fixed facility on Coors Blvd (the major street on the west side of Albuquerque). The church began to grow and most of the current staff began to attend and develop.
Then began the trust period for Church Alive! The current facility changed ownership and caused the church to meet in temporary locations, primarily of which was Petrogliph elementary school. All of the equipment for Church Alive! had to fit into one large truck and it was necessary to set up everything week after week. Thankfully, due to the love and loyalty, of the church pastors and members, Church Alive! continued. As Pastors Mike and Sheri continued to believe for a fixed facility, they and the staff of Church Alive! were blessed once again.
In August of 2003, Church Alive! moved into its current location! The vision and mission of Church Alive! is now cemented in our hearts by the testing of our faith, and now we focus on much more than a building made by human hands; that is people reaching, restoring, renewing, and reproducing Christ in the lives of others.
