Who We Are

In January 2022, we had US ex-pats, Colombians and others drawn together by the Holy Spirit to launch the first English Speaking Christian Church in Medellin, Colombia. We hold weekly church gatherings which includes worship, Bible preaching and time of interaction. We also have live and online English Bible studies, women’s ministry and special bilingual events. We love God and love people! Come check us out!

What We Believe

the bible

All Scripture contained in the Old and New Testaments is verbally, plenarily, and inerrantly inspired by God. It is the authoritative guide for all Christian understanding, life and ministry.


There is but one God eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Each is infinite, eternal and almighty.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son, is fully God and fully man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and He lived a sinless life. He died, shedding His blood in His substitutionary death for sinners, then was buried, arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son as the third Person of the Godhead. The Spirit convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment and unites man to Jesus Christ by faith. We believe the Holy Spirit seals and indwells all believers. The filling of the Holy Spirit is not an unconditional promise to all believers; the indwelling is.


Man was created in the image and likeness of God. It was by man’s free volition that he disobeyed God, incurring physical and spiritual death (separation from God). Each human being is born with a sin nature. Because of this each human is a sinner by nature and is in need of a divine salvation.


Salvation is a gift from God. This was accomplished by Christ’s substitutionary death; all who believe in Him are justified by the shedding of His blood. Because salvation is given by grace, the believer’s salvation is eternally secure.


The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is sent upon all who believe in Jesus Christ. This takes place in each believer at the moment of salvation. Continual infilling may follow. Each gift given by the Holy Spirit is for the edification of the Body of Christ, and is still present today.

Great Commission

We believe that the fulfillment of the Great Commission is the responsibility of all believers.


The church is the body and the bride of Christ. It is dedicated to the worship and service of God and the observance of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The primary task of the church in all ages is to teach all nations and to make disciples through the preaching and teaching of the Word of God.


Christ will return to rapture His church. Immediately following this event will be the seven-year tribulation period. Concluding this, Christ will come again to the earth and establish His rule for a 1,000 year period. The Great White Throne judgment of the unsaved, coupled with Satan being cast into the lake of fire, will then allow Christ to establish a New Heaven and a New Earth. This is the consummation of all things.
