The Apostolic and Prophetic Ministry Cristo Rey, is an international ministry based in the municipality of Las Piedras, Puerto Rico.
We are a ministry of teaching and ministerial training, our emphasis is to train about the biblical principles of faith, about the character of life in Christ Jesus, about the ministry of deliverance and casting out of demons, and mainly, about the spiritual training in the apostolic and prophetic areas.
We exercise the ministry of deliverance, and we develop ministerial schools on the doctrinal value of the teachings of Jesus, on spiritual warfare, on the legal right of demons to operate in the regions, on spiritual warfare against the powers of sin.
Our Statement of Faith:
We believe in one True God, Creator and Sustainer of all things, God of all flesh, as presented by the prophet Jeremiah, that by His grace and by His mercy all things subsist.
And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.John 17:3
We believe in Jesus, Lord and Savior, mediator between God and men, through whom alone we have forgiveness and redemption of sins, and through whom alone we can reach the Father.
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;1 Timothy 2:5
We believe in the Power of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, who brings us to the knowledge of Truth, and by whom we are reproved for righteousness, judgment, and sin.
And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:John 16:8
We believe that man is justified by his faith in Jesus, as it is written, That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.Romans 10:9
We believe that all Scripture is divinely inspired and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly trained for every good work.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:2 Timothy 3:16
We believe that though we are not justified by the works of the Law, the writings of the Old Testament are still in force, and from them are to be revealed even things which eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor yet have entered into the heart of man.
For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what he hath prepared for him that waiteth for him.Isaiah 64:4
We believe in baptism by immersion invoking the name of Jesus as part of the process of salvation, necessary for the remission of sins; baptism is not a symbolic act, it is an act of faith through which man weakens his body of sin in order to live in a new life according to the nature of the Spirit.
And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.Acts 22:16
We believe in the validity of the five ministries: apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, and all of them operating within the local and regional church. The ministries are for the edification of the church.
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;Ephesians 4:11
We believe that the growth and development of the church is based on the operation of the five ministries, but the maturity and perfection of the church is based on the apostolic and prophetic ministries,
and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;Ephesians 2:20
which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;Ephesians 3:5
We believe that in hope we are saved, that no one who puts his hand to the plow, and looks back, is worthy of so great a salvation.
For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for?Romans 8:24
We believe in the visible return of Jesus to the earth; we believe that the rapture of the church is also a visible event and that it occurs together with the coming of Jesus; we believe that the wedding of the Lamb is a private event that will take place in Jerusalem after the coming of Jesus, and all those who were part of the rapture and resurrection of the saints participate; we believe that these events are the beginning of the millennial reign of Jesus on earth.
which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.Acts 1:11
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.Revelation 20:6
We preach that the Lord God has called and empowered a special generation of men and women of faith to lift the curse of the earth, and to establish God’s Kingdom and His righteousness on earth, that it may be done on earth as it is in heaven,
For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.Matthew 24:28
We preach that while we await the coming of Jesus, we must establish the Kingdom of God and his righteousness on earth, so that it may be done on earth as it is in heaven.
20 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: 21 neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.Luke 17:20-21
We preach that we are called and authorized in the name of Jesus to expel from the regions all power of darkness, and to eradicate all occult practices of Santeria, as commanded in the Scriptures.
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.Ephesians 6:12
