Get to know Pastor Jose


Pastor Jose Salgado

Pastor of Iglesia Esperanza Viva


My name is José Salgado , I was born in Guerrero Mexico but I am currently living in Burbank Illinois with my wife Cynthia and my three daughters Lizbeth, Lisette and Lynette.  In 2009 the Lord by His sovereign grace alone drawn me to the Lord Jesus for the redemption of my sin.

Romans 3:23 says that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. This verse brought me the conviction of my sin and I quickly realized that I was a great sinner in need of a great Savior. It was at this moment that completely surrendered my life to Jesus my Savior for the forgiveness of my sins. The Gospel brought unity in my marriage. It brought us to true love and patience. The Lord has helped me to be a tender father to my daughters as well. I praise God for all the ways he has changed me into the image of Christ!

I have a passion for the preaching of His word and the fellowship with the church. I am currently enrolled in Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and Fruitland Theological College working towards my Theological degree.

I enjoy spending time with my family. We love to go hiking and bike riding.  My favorite Bible Verse is Psalm 63:8, “My soul clings to you; your right hand upholds me.” This reminds me that my faith is not in my own power, but Jesus personally upholds my soul. Just like he upheld Peter in all his weakness, God is holding me up. I praise God for His marvelous grace.
