We are planting a church in the city of Porto Alegre, Brazil. At Igreja Batista Esperança (Hope Baptist Church), we are involved in the ministry of God’s Word in the church and evangelism. We are also planting a church in Vila Nova, a southern suburb of Porto Alegre. We are involved in evangelism and Bible studies.
Most of the people are of European descent. Many people immigrated to southern Brazil from Portugal, Italy and Germany. They speak Portuguese. The majority are Roman Catholic.
