About Us

Libertad En Cristo (Freedom In Christ) believes that the Holy Bible was written by divinely inspired men and is the revelation of God Himself to man. It is a perfect treasury of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and the truth, without a mixture of error, for matter. Therefore, all of Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore it is, and will continue to be until the end of the world, the true center of Christian union and the supreme standard by which all human behavior, creeds, and opinions must be judged. religious. All Scripture is a testimony of Christ, who is Himself the center of divine revelation. Salvation implies the redemption of the whole man, and is freely offered to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who through his own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. And we believe in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit as taught in the Scriptures.

Conoce Al Párroco

Meet the Pastor

My name is Didier De La Cruz. I was born in Cuba, moved to the United States in 2011 and became a US citizen in 2017. At the age of 20, I accepted Jesus into my heart and this has been the most important decision of my life because after knowing His word I understood that as a sinful man, I needed His forgiveness, His grace, His love and His guidance. Today, I love God because he first loved me by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to forgive all my sins and achieve salvation through faith in his perfect sacrifice.

Once I accepted Jesus into my heart, I felt every minute of my life that I needed to tell others what Christ did for me, and in this way I felt called to preach his word so that others would come and experience eternal life.

The desire to be a Pastor was put in my heart by the Lord when I began to preach his word from my home to a group of people who wanted to learn and who, over time have given themselves to God, being baptized by immersion in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit thus experiencing Freedom in Christ.

My mission as a Pastor is to faithfully preach the Word of God so that those who hear it have a true approach and understanding of His character, Goodness, Grace and Forgiveness.

For this Ministry that God has affirmed, the fundamental objective is to see people transformed, healed, restored and reconciled with God, in addition to loving, helping, guiding and blessing all those who decide to accept Christ in their hearts and choose to be part of this ministry.

I fully enjoy studying of the word of God to be able to always be in total communion and prepared to preach his word on time and out of time. I enjoy sharing and spending time with my family, I like sports, reading and learning.

In addition to being a pastor, I own a business and my days are divided between serving God, being with my family and working. I always look for a balance so as not to fail in what God requires of me.

We use musical worship as a way to lift up the name of Jesus and exalt him. We want to worship him in Spirit and in truth, and therefore we will use our voices (and instruments) to bring him heartfelt praise.


Pastor Didier's approach to preaching God's Word is exciting and educational. His main goal is for everyone who listens to leave the church willing to tell other people about the goodness and power of God.

Pastor Didier believes in the power of God and His Word to change people and make them new in Jesus Christ. He addresses all kinds of topics in his sermons using the Bible to speak about finances, marriage, children and youth, love, and more!

Children / Youth  

Here at LEC, we believe that caring for the little ones is very important.

In their classes, they are taught the importance of believing in God and how He cares for them, navigating this world as a believer, building a relationship with God, and more.

Biblical Studies

Hearing the Scriptures preached is not the only way to expand our understanding of God's Word. Bible studies are essential to help a believer understand and become familiar with the Bible. These meetings organized by different members of the church are the perfect place to discuss all kinds of topics to gain insight and understanding with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Women's Bible Study

Bible Studies For Women

The LEC ladies meet once a week to discuss Bible topics, pray, share testimonies, and host devotionals. We believe it is important for women to come together and encourage one another in the name of Jesus, as they are a vital part of the body of Christ.


“The Lord announces victory, and thousands of women proclaim the good news.” Psalm 68:11
