We are church planting in the western section of Sao Paulo, Brazil. We began the ministry in 2006 with renting a storefront to hold services. The Lord has blessed and given us a good group of young believers who want to grow in the Lord and serve Him. The Lord has also provided land a the building of a new church. Lailton, one of the believers, is attending seminary and being trained to become the pastor of the church, Faith Baptist Church.
Brazil is a land of contrasts. It is a beautiful country with mild weather and great food! The people are very friendly. However, it is a land of spiritual darkness. Most people claim to be Catholic, but many times, they will also practice Spiritism. Cults and Pentecostals are prevalent as well. Carnival is the most well-known festival. It is literally a feast of the flesh. Brazilians need to hear that salvation is through Christ alone and through faith alone when they thrust the Catholic church to save them.
