Our History

NewLife got its start in September of 2007 when Pastor Alan Brooks was called by God to leave Calvary Chapel of ABQ, where he had served for 12 years and started a new church on the westside of Albuquerque. For the first 18 months, NewLife met in a hotel and then leased and renovated a warehouse for the next four years. In the Spring of 2013, God miraculously opened the door for us to purchase our current property, and has enabled us to become the proverbial light on the hill above Albuquerque.

In 2021, Pastor Robb Bierbaum left a college ministry and moved his family from Denver, Colorado to become our first full-time Associate Pastor. Then on January 1st of 2023, he traded roles with our Founding Pastor and became the Lead Pastor of NewLife.
