Meet the Pastor

Pastor Adrian Ortiz is a second-career pastor. When God called him into the ministry he and his wife (Mrs. Adrienne) closed up the books on their construction business and dove head first into Bible school. Pastor Adrian received his Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies through Moody Bible Institute and has taught within the local church setting for the past 10 years


My name is Adrian Ortiz, and it has been my joy, and privilege, to teach God's Word in the local church setting for the building up of the saints and to invite ALL PEOPLE into the glorious life of repentance and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.

Ephesians 2:10 tells us that "we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works... that we should walk in them". Furthermore, we are told that we are "the household of God built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone" (Ephesians 2:20).  

God is doing something truly amazing in creation right now. How awesome is it that we get to be actively involved in what HE is doing in this phase of the plan to redeem people who will live with Him forever in Heaven?

If you would like to be a part of a Christ-centered community, or just want to see what this Jesus thing is all about, I can't recommend a better place or group of believers than here at First Baptist Church of Martinez. 

Hope to see you very soon, God bless!
