A warm welcome to YOU in the powerful and precious Name of Jesus Christ! We invite YOU to WORSHIP with us; to PRAY with us; to SING with us; to BELIEVE with us.

You are with enthusiastic and cheerful Christian friends.

Towards this purpose, our Church is very active in mission work locally, nationally and worldwide. Christ the Ray of Hope Lutheran Church is a member of the American Association of Lutheran Churches (AALC).

Christ The Ray Of Hope is a “unique” Lutheran Church. The church is located in Vista del Norte Shopping Center and is the owner of the shopping center. The church is debt free and uses the income from the shopping center tenants to maintain the property and support missions, ministries and organizations in Albuquerque, in the United States and all over the world. The income from the shopping center is not used to pay operating expenses for the church.

35 For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36 naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’37 Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38 And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39 When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’ Matthew 25:35-40 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
