Church Planting in
Las Vegas, Nevada
By Jorge Noriega — BIMI/Reseeding America Ministry
Editor’s Note: The Noriega family has planted two Hispanic
churches in Las Vegas with BIMI/Reseeding America. They are
working on their third church plant. Brother Noriega trains his
own men for the ministry and two of them now pastor the first two
churches that are self-supporting. He is currently working towards
turning over this third church, which he writes about in this article.
Looking back on this past year, our church, Iglesia Bautista La Fe (The Faith
Baptist Church), experienced some exciting growth. First, spiritually, we saw our
folks become more dedicated in their walk with Jesus Christ and more faithful in
their church attendance. We also observed them taking on new ministries and
volunteering to serve in our church. Next, we saw modest gains in new people
coming into the church.
For the very first time, our church conducted a Vacation Bible School (VBS),
and it was all planned by Miguel with the help of his wife, Sarah. They recruited
and assigned different members in the church to help teach classes, help with
crafts, and provide refreshments for the children and adults in attendance. They
also purchased and gave away prizes to the children for completing their lessons
and memorizing verses. The theme of VBS was based on the following Bible verse:
And that from a child thou hast known the holy
scriptures, which are able to make thee wise
unto salvation through faith which is in
Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 3:15).
