About us

Welcome to Christian Church Light In The Darkness. We are excited about your interest in us. In 2007 we started CCLID in our backyard, and in six days we were in a location beginning a great move to reach our community and the world. God has allowed us to travel internationally as well as in the United States to expand the CCLID fellowship of diverse communities. CCLID is a multicultural community of believers. We are Christ centered and Bible based.  We believe that God will grant you valuable insight into the Holy Scripture, life as it is meant to be lived, and service to others. We offer a diversity of Ministries and we know that God’s Spirit will begin to deepen your appreciation and love for Christ as you grow in your studies and personal relationship with Him. Through your spiritual journey with us, your world view and responses to the events in life will be refined to align with the Word of Truth. God will open your heart and mind and enable you to receive deeper revelations and understanding of Christ so that your entire lifestyle will be consistent with the truth and spirit of the doctrines of Scripture. Our goal is to prepare and then release you as an effective servant leader to His Church, the community, and the world.

The message of the church revolves around these beliefs.

Salvation Through Jesus Christ

Salvation is deliverance from spiritual death and enslavement by sin. God provides salvation for all who believe and accept His free offer of forgiveness. Mankind’s only hope of redemption from the fallen sinful state is through the blood of Jesus Christ, God’s Son–blood that was shed as Jesus died on the cross. The account of the crucifixion of Jesus is recounted by four of the Gospel books: Matthew (chapter 27), Mark (chapter 15), Luke (chapter 23), and John (chapter 19).] (Luke 24:47; John 3:3,16,17; Rom. 8:16; 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8,9; 4:24; Titus 2:11-12; 3:5-7)

Divine Healing

Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
 (Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:16,17; James 5:14-16)

Baptism in the Holy Spirit

All believers are entitled to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and therefore should expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all believers in the early Christian church. With the experience comes the provision of power for victorious Christian living and productive service. It also provides believers with specific spiritual gifts for more effective ministry. The baptism of Christians in the Holy Spirit is accompanied by the initial physical sign of speaking in other tongues (unlearned languages) as the Spirit of God gives them audible expression. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 2:4; 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16; 15:7-9; 1 Cor. 12:1-31)

The Second Coming of Christ

All Christians who have died will one day rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air. Christians who have not yet died will be raptured or caught up with them, to be with the Lord. Then Christians of all ages will live with God forever. The scriptural truth of the Lord’s soon return is “the blessed hope”. (Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; 1 Thessa­lonians 4:16-17; Titus 2:13)

Sincerely,

Apostle Dr.Cesar and First Lady Yolanda Velez

Dare to be Empowered!  

“Jesus said unto him,
If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.”
