Who We Are

We are a unique church that is characterized by Ethnic, Cultural, and Economic diversity. Our people come from every corner of the city of Albuquerque and many neighboring communities.

There are opportunities for fellowship, bible study, and prayer for all ages each week, and a quality nursery is provided for every worship service.

Albuquerque Revival Church is a growing family of believers that worship together and care for one another. We have no printed “Order of Worship” or complicated rituals to follow. Our worship is based upon the biblical pattern.

If you have never made a personal commitment of your life to Christ, you will receive that opportunity regularly at this church.

If you already have a relationship with our Lord and are looking for a place to serve Him, we look forward to meeting and getting to know you better. Welcome Home!

Our Services

What are services like?
Come expecting a friendly, personal, uplifting, and exciting worship experience. We worship as we live, with enthusiasm. We believe that God is still working in all the same ways that He did in the early church found in the Bibles book of Acts. Bible classes for all ages Sundays begin at 9:30 AM with Bible study small groups known as Sunday School. Personalized classes are divided by age, grade and interests to serve individuals from infants through senior adults. Child care A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers. This loving, comfortable atmosphere helps show children at the earliest ages that church is a good place to be. Child care also frees parents to attend Sunday School and the main Worship Service. Children’’s Church Bible-oriented activities are provided for preschool and elementary-age children. At this level, young children are taught to sing, pray, memorize Scripture and learn important Bible truths. They are instructed and led in worship at their own levels. Facilities Our newly modernized location at 124 Texas St. NE features state of the art sound, lighting, staging, and video equipment as well as comfortable seating to create the perfect worship environment. Music Music is a major feature of our worship, before, during and even after the service itself. A full worship band and singers lead the congregation in the most current worship music along with the occasional song from the past We encourage clapping and raising hands as an expression of worship, but respect those who’s worship is more reserved. Music will include both congregational and special ministries —— solos, duets, ensembles, choirs, instrumentals. Our music is more than a performance; it is an expression of our love for God. Worship experience The service may include quiet times of waiting in God’’s presence, spiritually savoring the sacred atmosphere. Other times may be vocal with collective praise as worshippers are invited to spontaneously express love and adoration to God. In everything, a flow of worship should be evident and, despite the spontaneity and excitement, a certain properness and order. Worship styles are reflected by the spectrum of personalities in the congregation. Some are quiet and reserved; some shout with joy; others are simply tender and openly emotional during times of praise or preaching. No sincere worshipper need feel out of place at ARC. Ministry to the sick As in the New Testament, specific prayer from time to time may be offered for the sick. They will be invited forward to be anointed with oil (James 5:13-16) and/or have the ministers, leaders or other believers lay hands on them and pray (Mark 16:18). Giving During the service, tithes and offerings will be received. This is More than a collection to pay church bills, this too is an act of worship. Our members feel giving the tithe (the first tenth of income) and offerings declares that God comes first. It recognizes His blessing, expresses faith and seeks His guidance in every matter in life. The ministries of the local church and globe-encircling work of the Assemblies of God through missions are supported solely by free-will giving. However, visitors need not feel obligated to give. Spiritual gifts An interesting aspect of Pentecostal worship is the operation of spiritual gifts. The planned service order may on occasion be suspended as individuals speak or share as prompted by the Holy Spirit, under the supervision of the pastoral leadership (1 Corinthians 12-14). This does not necessarily take place in every service, but can be expected from time to time, as the Holy Spirit directs. One may speak out in an unknown tongue, a Spirit-guided language other than that of the congregation. Another individual, or perhaps the same one, will then give the interpretation. On occasion, the Spirit may prompt someone to speak out, to prophesy, in the language of the congregation. The gift of prophecy, the gift of tongues and the gift of interpretation, and other spiritual gifts bring the church confirmation of Bible truths and encourage those present. Challenging messages The climax of the service comes with the preaching of God’’s Word, the Bible, and an invitation for hearers to respond. The messages are both inspiring and practical. The pastor or speaker may close with an invitation for those who need forgiveness in their lives to come forward and accept Christ as Savior. Those who feel a need to rededicate their lives to Christ or to pray about other concerns are also invited to come. Believers are urged to ask God for the baptism in the Holy Spirit to further empower them for Christian service. Often everyone is invited to come pray during the altar service. Deep emotion and excitement may or may not be demonstrated at the altars, but everyone who calls on God in faith receives something. If you’ve wondered what a Pentecostal service is like, we invite you to observe and experience God’’s joy and peace that defy description. And when you visit again, come expecting. Expect a move of God not only in the service, but also in your life. We think you’’ll agree that the comfort, help and strength He gives are better experienced than explained.
