Pastor Paul Santos was born in Brazil, South America to a secular Sephardic Jewish family. At the age of 15 years, he had a Divine encounter with his Lord and Messiah, Jesus Christ. This encounter led to a complete transformation of his life. Two years later, he entered the Bible Baptist Seminary in Central East Brazil, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in Theology. During the first ten years of his ministry, he planted seven churches within various areas of Brazil. Then in 1987, in a divine and supernatural move of the Spirit of God, Pastor Paul was clothed with power from above which resulted in him speaking in tongues for a period of several days. He continued his studies with International Correspondence School (ICI).
Brother Paul married Sister Marcia in 1980. Sister Marcia was a Child Evangelist Fellowship graduate. She is an intercessor and has led large intercessory ministries in each church they planted. The intercessory ministry is tenderly called “Women of God Fellowship.” The Santos' have four adult children, eight grandchildren and another grandchild expected in the summer of 2019. The Santos' moved to Baltimore, Maryland in the winter of 1998, planted Friends Forever Ministry and trained leaders to run the ministry. Today, the church is known as the Church at Baltimore.
Pastor Paul had over 30 years of experience in radio broadcasting, both in the USA and abroad. He spoke four languages fluently (English, Portuguese, Dutch and Spanish) and understood some Hebrew and Hindi.
The Santos’ served as missionaries and planted many churches throughout the world. After planting churches for almost 30 years, the Lord gave Pastor Paul a new assignment after the passing of Pastor John McCall. He was commissioned to strengthen the already established body of believers of Baltimore Christian Faith Center, where miracles continue to happen today.
In the morning hours of Friday, February 15, 2019, The Lord brought our beloved Pastor Paul Santos Home. We rejoice at the joy Pastor Paul is experiencing now, being with The Father, even though our hearts are filled with sadness here on Earth.
