Per popular demand we are decided to publish our church messages in English. Summer 2019 we will be launching a audio podcast with ALL the Series, including from the very first message given by Pastor Rafael Ruiz. Because everybody matters!
Iglesia El Verbo is a Spanish speaking church founded in early 2018 to help meet the needs of the Hispanics in the greater Ogden and surrounding Weber and Davis County areas of Utah. Our Vision is to connect the Hispanics in our area to a vibrant, loving and growing relationship with Christ Jesus. It is our hope and dream to tell the good news to every person in our community and to lead them into a life of grace, faith, love and service. In English our name is The Verb Church, an action word to remind us to be in active pursuit of God's designs and promises for our lives and the community around us.
“Because people can be changed, society can change” -John F. Havlik
There is no doubt the strongest power of transformation has a name and the name is Jesus. Society culture can influence us toward uncontrolled behaviors- abuse, violence and making bad decisions. God is calling ordinary people to make extraordinary differences. Be part of this movement of change today.
Pray for our Church
Pray and support our outreach to touch the lives of the people in our community.
Over 24 thousand people representing 30% of the populations in Ogden, Utah are Hispanic or Latinos. The city of Ogden is lively, culturally unique and peaceful in nature. It is a growing city including a large Hispanic community and several nationally recognized revitalization projects in the works. In the winter of 2014, God called us to work in this beautiful city and we have been doing so faithfully. Our first service was Easter day 2018 and we want to become a force of change in our community. Our Mission is to bring to fruition what Jesus came to do in the world.
Our vision is to build up a congregation in Ogden, Utah to reach out to those in our community who feel hurt, lonely, rejected-those who are tired of faking it, those who need a fresh start, those who want to do something which matters. We want to create a system to take them intentionally through a biblical path of development resulting in real life change. Our vision includes creating a culture of honesty, transparency, to be of integrity without gossip, freedom without prejudice, boldness without hesitation and action without expecting something in return. Our vision includes a goal to prepare and send leaders, pastors and members to fulfill Christ's transformational mission.
Our dream is to see people receiving transformed life through Jesus-living in spiritual and emotional freedom, developing authentic friendships, and welcoming people as they are, without prejudice. We believe in the transformational power of Jesus Christ to change lives and compassionately guiding others to experience Him, without rushing their process. The outcome- commitment to the mission Jesus left us in His word and to draw nearer to Him day by day transforming our hearts to be reflections of His heart.
