Biography

I was borne in El Salvador, migrated to the USA, and then came to Australia in 1990.

I have a Bachelor of Theology Degree from the Australian College of Theology (Ridley College) and a post-graduate Diploma in Ministry from the University of Divinity (Whitley College). I am currently doing a Master of Theology Studies at the South African Theological Seminary, SATS.

I am married to Erika since 1994, and have 3 girls and one boy.

I have been in Christian ministry, both in English and Spanish, since 1998. Currently, I attend Wyndham Vale Christian Centre, where I help with the worship and preaching of the church.

I am a mixture of traditions. I grew up Baptist, but because of of the religious situation of my country, had to attend Catholic Church functions, and also, our maid took me to her Pentecostal Church on Sunday night. Later in the USA, I spoke in tongues in a Reformed Church!!! Later, I attended another Pentecostal Church and came to Australia, where I was a member of a Pentecostal church until I got married. Later, since Ridley College is an Anglican College, I attended the Anglican Church, and was trained in ministry. Later, I attended a Presbyterian Church for a while, before going to my grand-mother’s funeral en the USA. On coming back to Australia, I went into Baptist Ministry, which I did for 11 years. Now, I am back to a Pentecostal Church again.

You may say, “what’s this guy’s doctrinal stand then? Well, let me show you:
I adhere to the historical Confessions of the Christian Faith: The Apostles’ Creed, The Nicean Creed, the Chalcedonian Creed and the Athanasius Creed. Those, and other creeds, can be found here.

As I consider my self Reformed, I also adhere to the Westminster Confession of Faith, and because of my Baptist Heritage, I also follow the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.

From the eschatological point of view, I am Amillenialist.

I am a Continuist that believes that the 27 gifts of the Spirit as see in Scripture, are still working today.

As mentioned above, I am Reformed, I see no conflict with taking in the New Perspective on Paul.

I hope that this helps you to know more about me.
