Petra Matagalpa Bible Church is the fifth bible church planted in Nicaragua.

Petra Matagalpa Bible Church is the fifth bible church planted in Nicaragua.
Arnold Sarria was born again on September 2002. He comes from a dysfunctional family, raised only by his mother and as a catholic. He lived up until a certain point of his life morally correct, until he reached a point where he started drinking a lot and under a lot of addictions. The message of His Lord Jesus came in a miraculous and powerful way. Without knowing what had happened after believing in Christ, was guided by God to visit a Christian church and since then his life has been for Christ with the desire to love him more, serve him and preach him as the only and sufficient Lord and Savior of sinners.

He is married to Beatriz Fonseca, who worked as an administrator and supported the beginning of the Petra Bible Church in Managua. They met at the church in 2005 and married in 2008. They have 2 daughters, Alexandra who is 6 and Rebeca of 5.

By the grace of God in 2015 they moved to the city of Matagalpa, in the north of the country to plant the Petra Bible Church Matagalpa. The church was launched in November of 2015. The church has Bible studies on Wednesdays, and the regular church service on Sundays to exalt the name of Jesus Christ through worship and preaching of the Word.

They have seen God’s faithfulness in the church with new conversions and people growing in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
