He began a relationship with Jesus during his childhood through the testimony of his uncle and in the midst of family conflicts. He has served the Lord from his youth in various ministries. Pastor Javier's approach is to show others the love of God, train them and help them take part in the mission of God's family. His desire and prayer is that each person can have a fervent, personal relationship with Jesus, and that the kingdom of God is established in every believer, in their family, their neighborhood and their city.

Just like ancient Babylon, our world is an evil empire complete with temporary kings, presidents and governments who have godless agendas. Our society is full of false gods, attempting to reprogram thinking and pressure people to live for the pleasures of here and now. The book of Daniel shows us another option for allegiance, knowing that our God is in control of whoever is in control, that Jesus, the Son of Man, is King above all. Daniel equips us to live with conviction and courage, standing for good, standing for Jesus no matter where we live. Join us this October for an important and timely message series.
Join us every Sunday Night in room 21 as we gather together to pray as a church family. Matthew 18:20-For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.
