Christ Is Salvation Church

Giving, Empowering and Overcoming through the Spirit

Who We Are

Greetings to you and your family in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God has called us here at Christ Is Salvation Church to reach our world by “GIVING” His Word, love and joy to all people, just as He gave his Son that we all might have eternal life. John 3:16

We strive to give the foundations of God’s Word so that we might all receive his “EMPOWERING” Holy Spirit. Acts 1:8

We are here to encourage you and remind you that God has provided and that we are “OVERCOMING” because of what Jesus Christ did at the Cross. Revelation 12:11

We’d like to invite you to visit and join us for one of our weekly services or special events. We have children’s, youth, compassion ministries and much more to serve you.

Please learn more about us on our new site, and if you have any questions or need prayer please feel free to call or contact us by email.

May God richly bless you and we hope to hear from you soon.

Yours In Christ,

Ruben Martinez, Pastor

Church Leader

Ruben & Margarita Martinez

Ruben & Margarita Martinez

Ruben & Margarita Martinez are the Senior and Founding Pastors of Christ Is Salvation Church. They were married in 1973. In 1985 Pastor Ruben was in need and asked God for healing for his mom who was dying. He said to God that if He healed her he would follow Him for the rest of his life. His mother was healed, saved and lived another 20 years. Today she is with the Lord and Pastor Ruben and his wife continue to serve Him. God gave Pastor Ruben a mission that motivates him to tell others about the salvation of Christ, His love and the abundance of life He has for His children. In 1996 Pastors Ruben & Margarita were moved to start Christ Is Salvation Church, this was after having pastored since 1990, and both having attended King’s College & Seminary in Van Nuys, California. Pastor Ruben was a business owner, auto mechanic, actor and investor who is now retired. He serves as full time senior pastor without receiving a salary. Pastor Margarita serves as his life and ministry partner as well as leads the ladies of Christ is Salvation and teaches. They both find it critical for people to learn and know the biblical truths of God’s love, “Who I am in Christ”, God is good, and He is in control. Their vision and mission are to advance God’s Kingdom while reaching the entire Coachella Valley and the world for Christ.
