about us

Located in Crystal City , just 120 miles southwest of San Antonio , Templo Emanuel is a bi-lingual congregation with a Pentecostal message, Spirit- filled worshipers and a variety of dedicated ministries for the entire family. 

You will find that our theme : A GREAT COMMISSION CHURCH is more than a motto. Our congregation is fully persuaded that the church must FINISH THE WORK that Jesus began when He came to earth 2000 years ago. We are blessed to support over 30 missionary efforts , both state-side and overseas.


Our church ministries are based on three key words: PRAYING, LOVING , GIVING. Our purpose is Biblical and yet practical. You will see that prayer is not a side-line activity but the empowering weapon so that young and old will experience the LOVE of God and together we GIVE to others.


You are cordially invited to be part of this growing congregation. Even now, I thank you for visiting us!


Pastors : Rev. Dino (B.P. Jr.) and Loida  Espinoza.

Youth Pastor:  Rev.Edgardo Castillo.

Children's Pastor: Melinda Castillo
