In 2006 Pastor Carlos Martin birthed a vision to Love one block at a time calling it Love-A-Block, this unique style of evangelism has been a success and other ministries are grasping hold to this simple but powerful and non-confrontational approach in presenting the gospel. Emphasis is placed on showing the love of God in helpful ways, which in turn, opens avenues to people’s hearts. Carlos Martin is addressing both the practical and spiritual benefits to this type of outreach and how it can become “doable” in any church touching many lives and saving souls. Carlos’ talks are enriching, humorous, and filled with creative incentives to “…love thy neighbor.…”

The church is touching lives throughout the city of Rialto and the Inland Empire.
