Abide in Christ Baptist Church, Esteli, Nicaragua
Abide in Christ Baptist Church in Estelí, Nicaragua began January 2013

"For if I preach the gospel, I have nothing to boast of, for I am under compulsion; for woe is me if I do not preach the gospel" (1 Corinthians 9:16).

The Abide in Christ Baptist Church was started by Aristides Bustillo who coordinates our ministry in Nicaragua. Aristides was pastoring First Baptist Church, Ocotal, Nicaragua, and had started a number of missions as an outreach of the church. Over the past four years we have conducted evangelism workshops with him in all of the Baptist churches in the northern region of Nicaragua. Thirteen new missions and churches have been started as a result. After much prayer Aristides asked if he could move to Estelí, and begin a completely new ministry starting new churches with Abide in Christ. In December 2012 Ariustides and Sadya moved to Estelí and began home Bible studies.

There are now around 35 attending these home meetings, and he has baptized 17 individuals upon their profession of faith in Christ. Abide in Christ currently provides four hundred dollars a month to rent a house and help with expenses in this new start up ministry.
