Ramoses

He was raised as an unbeliever with a very basic Roman Catholic influence, which meant he maybe went to church once a year. His parents did the best they could, but having an alcoholic and abusive Father was hard on the whole family.

- He was saved after hitting a low spot in his life while living in Chilliwack BC in 1992, when he cried out to God and God answered him.

- He was baptized in the Holy Ghost while driving in his truck after a Full Gospel Business Man’s meeting the same week while attending a Mennonite Church.

- In 1994, he was water baptized in Foursquare Church, Coquitlam.

- had a powerful visitation from God in the middle of the night when God spoke so loud that it woke him out of his sleep but nobody else in the house heard where God called him to be a Prophet! Recently,  two people prophecies over his ministry that God was changing his calling to that of an Apostolic leader and looks forward to seeing God produce much fruit from that in the years ahead!

 

After graduated from Liberty and Pacific Life Bible college, he continues his calling and itinerates ministry where God moves in signs and wonders in all of the gifts, with healings & deliverances by God. Some examples include a person healed of HIV and many set free from demonic bondages, as well as life changing prophecy & words of knowledge often will manifest in the meetings, and many touched by the Glory of God.   He has a family with 2 kids and a wonderful wife Cindy, living in Surrey.

WHO ARE WE:

The Houston International Revival Church was founded July 1st 2022 by Pastors Joey and Jade Castillo.

Coming to Houston to relocate our world headquarters in the fastest growing and most diverse county in America. It is important to be in a city where so many nations are represented because our hearts are for the unreached people groups of the world.  

 

So who is H.I.R.C.? We have churches and affiliates in China, Canada, and Mongolia through our parent organization All Nations International Fellowship. 

 

A.N.I.F.  began in the spring of 2011 and started with a group of expats in Beijing, looking for a place to experience God in a deeper and more meaningful way.

 

So a mixed group of Africans, Asians and Europeans gathered together for worship, prayer, and a care for one another. By having a heavy focus on Prayer, Community, Evangelism, and being Holy Ghost filled we founded A.N.I.F.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONNECT WITH H.I.R.C.?

 

We believe that God has made of one blood every nation of the world. So we are a multicultural fellowship who worships God with all our heart, mind and soul during our services, we aim to be a Church where people can experience a Living God not just hear about a God who did miracles thousands of years ago.

 

With an understanding that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever, we expect to see healing, salvation, deliverance as Jesus the Christ is proclaimed. You will experience see signs, wonders and miracles as a normal part of our services.

 

We welcome the greater community of Fort Bend County to join us. We respect all branches of biblical Christianity and strive to have the Lord Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit as the center and focus in all our services.

Our liturgical use of titles such as Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor, Teachers, Elders and Deacons are used for the purpose of understanding function only, and not a spiritual pecking order.

We use the term "Bishop" meaning in a biblical sense "overseer" of multiple locations and ministers with apostolic function. Elders is a term we use for Pastors who do not lead independent congregations, while Pastor is used for senior pastor roles over their own congregation. Deacons for ministers who tend to the daily church needs and so forth. We also believe in the five-fold gift of Evangelists and Prophets. 

 

Yet recognize believers who are not in an Ascension Gift Office, can and should operate in ALL of the gifts to varying degrees.
