Cristo Centro Honduras is part of a worldwide network of churches in 24 nations. Since its inception in 1985, it has grown from its birthplace in San Ignacio to plant daughter churches in the heart of some of the poorest areas of San Pedro Sula. Their vision is to reach out socially to all without discrimination and to restore lives holistically, guided by Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Pastor Mario Arriaga Jimenez serves in Nueva Florida, a rural community in northern Honduras. His vision is to see wholistic transformation throughout the community by providing a spiritual presence and meeting physical needs. The church runs a Gospel based children’s program daily with sponsorship opportunities through His Hands For Honduras, another Healing Nations partner.
