In Salt Lake City a Hispanic church plant is changing the lives of people across the city. Luis and Beatriz Soto, North American Mission Board (NAMB) missionaries, planted the church, Rock of the Centuries Baptist Church, in the West Valley section of the city. Their goal is to reach Hispanics for Christ.
Salt Lake City is the capital of Utah, a primarily Mormon state. It is estimated that 98% of the people there are lost and without Christ. The Sotos established their church in the heart of the city, halfway between the Utah State Capitol building and the airport, to best reach the residents of the city.
Luis looks for members of Rock of the Centuries who are strong in their faith to send to other local communities to plant churches. Many of the congregants work two or more jobs to make ends meet, so those who tackle such ministries are truly committed to sharing the Gospel.
Our church supports the Sotos and their work in Salt Lake City, as well as other NAMB missionaries, when we give through the Cooperative Program. Let’s pray for the Soto’s ministry and that their church may be strengthened as they send people out to plant new ones.
