In 2002, Jacob Bock and a friend began passing out tracts in one of the main
plazas of Madrid, the Puerta del Sol. Soon believers from various evangelical churches learned
about the evangelism effort and decided to participate. One day the box that contained the
tracts was turned over to become a temporary platform. Jacob stood on the box and preached to
the people using objects and stories from everyday life to illustrate the gospel.
Today the Ontheredbox team members preach, give testimonies, sing, and talk personally with the listeners in the street six days a week throughout the year. Christians from many evangelical churches in the Madrid area participate in the evangelism ministry. The people that are ministered to in the plaza are encouraged to become involved in a local church.
As more believers came to learn how to be more effective in evangelism, Ontheredbox beganmonthly workshops, a local Basic Training evangelism program, and a free online school. ManyOntheredbox teams have been raised up throughout Spain, Europe, and Latin America thatproclaim the gospel in their streets and plazas each week.
In 2017 God provided the funds to purchase the Ontheredbox ministry center located on the Puerta del Sol as a permanent place dedicated to prayer, evangelism, and training.

19:00 – 22:00 Evangelism in Puerta del Sol
Evangelizers need to be signed up for our Basic Training program to participate in Ontheredbox evangelism, but we encourage believers to accompany us on the streets to see what God is doing.
Evangelism and Prayer go together. At Ontheredbox, we have created a space dedicated
exclusively for prayer. The Prayer Room is set apart for worship, intercession, and meditation on the
Word of God. There are organized sessions with live worship that focus on intercession and praying the
Word. Other times you will find a quiet atmosphere where you can seek the Lord on your own.
Monday-Friday 16:00 to 19:00 Saturday 16:00 to 18:00
Ontheredbox is a center for the training of open-air evangelists. From Monday through
Saturday you can come to our center and receive personal mentorship in evangelism, pray with us in the
Prayer Room, and join us for evangelism on the street. The FIRST SATURDAY of each month we offer
evangelism workshops and then put it into practice on the street.

1.- The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and His plan for
2.- There is only one God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
3.- As the Son of God, Jesus was equally human and divine.
4.- Though originally good, man willingly fell into sin, ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
5.- Every person can be reconciled to God through salvation (repentance from sin, and trust inJesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross).
6.- The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe “the Church” is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have repented and trusted in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for redemption from sin (regardless of religious denomination).
7.- The Baptism in the Holy Spirit and its accompanying gifts empower believers for witnessing and effective service today, just as in New Testament times.
8.- A Final Judgment will take place for those who have died in their sins. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.
