Iglesia Luterana Cristo Rey ("Christ the King Lutheran Church") belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
Located in the heart of a low-income Hispanic district in central El Paso, Texas, Cristo Rey ministers to people on both sides of the international border. The worshiping congregation provides an inclusive place for cultures to meet and share their gifts.
The congregation primarily consists of first–generation and second-generation Mexican immigrants but welcomes people from all backgrounds.
Cristo Rey is part of a neighborhood in transition from a residential to business district.
Many in their congregation speak English, but Spanish is the native language. The ministry of Cristo Rey, the only bilingual ELCA church in El Paso, is crucial to this large city and its Hispanic people.
