Our main objective as a ministry is to train Christians to share the Message of the Cross. We offer practical evangelism tools to share the message in two ways:
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 began monthly workshops, a local Basic Training evangelism program, and a free online school. Many Ontheredbox teams have been raised up throughout Spain, Europe, and Latin America that proclaim 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.

First Saturday of every month. (Free-will offering taken)
1.- The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and His plan for humanity.
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.
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.
