How it all began...
Prince of Peace was founded in 1984 in Cedar Crest, a rural suburb of Albuquerque. A small group of Lutherans who lived in the area formed the mission church, first meeting at a local school and purchasing property to build a sanctuary the following year. The church was built over the foundation of a previous dinner theater. A pre-school program was opened in 1994 and a few years later, elementary and intermediate grades were added; the school is the church’s primary outreach ministry.
The name, “Prince of Peace”, comes from a bible verse that lists some of the names of Jesus.
The prophet Isaiah (6.9) said: “His name shall be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Jesus our Savior certainly is the one to bring peace to all nations - This is our name & our teaching!
