Who We Are

We're a Community Rooted in Love & Faith

We are a community of believers focused on loving God with all our hearts, and loving the people God places in our paths— just like Jesus did.

At LOVE+UNLTD Church you will be welcomed before you believe what we believe, and you will be loved regardless of who you are.

“If you have love for one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples.” John 13:35

What We Believe

The Trinity

God is the one true God, existing forever in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who paid for our sins with His death on the cross—a sacrifice in our place. Three days later, He was resurrected to a new life by the power of the Holy Spirit. This same Spirit now empowers and guides all who follow Christ.
Deuteronomy 6:4 // Matthew 28:19 // Mark 1:9-11 // John 1:1-5, 5:21-23 // Romans 1:3-5, 8:9-11 // James 2:19


Everyone has sinned and falls short of God's glory, and because of this, we all need a savior. The only path to salvation is through the forgiveness of our sins, made possible by the blood of Jesus Christ, which was shed on the cross. We are saved by grace through faith in what Jesus did for us—His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, given to us through Jesus's sacrifice, not through our good works or personal efforts.
Isaiah 1:18 // Matthew 1:21, 27:22-66 // Luke 2:28-32 // Acts 2:21 // Romans 1:16-18, 5:8-10 // Galatians 2:20, 3:13 // Revelation 3:20

God's Word

The Bible, in its original language, is the perfect, inspired, and authoritative Word of God for everyone. Written by human authors under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit, it stands without error. Each time we come together, we are committed to teaching the truths of the Bible because it is vital for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness. This ensures that we are fully equipped for every good work.
Deuteronomy 4:1-2 // Psalm 119:11 // Isaiah 40:8 // Matthew 22:29 // John 17:17 // Romans 15:4 // 2 Timothy 3:15-17 // Hebrews 1:1-2 // 2 Peter 3:15-16


We believe that Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of God, serving as the only mediator for those who call on and believe in His name. This assures us that God hears our prayers and desires us to reach out to Him. Through prayer, we strengthen and deepen our relationship with God, and we are welcomed to join in His work on Earth.
2 Chronicles 7:14 // Jeremiah 29:12 // Matthew 6:6-13 // Mark 11:24 // Romans 8:34 // Ephesians 6:18 // Hebrews 7:25 // 1 John 5:14-16


We believe that God has provided the community of believers as a means to strengthen, equip, resource, and encourage one another toward love and good deeds. We view community as essential for genuine Biblical discipleship and embrace the responsibility to help followers of Christ engage deeply in Biblical community with each other.
Psalm 133:1 // Acts 1:14, 2:46-47, 4:32 // Romans 12:4-5 // 1 Corinthians 12:13 // Hebrews 10:23-25 // 1 John 4:11

Loving the forgotten is our call

At the heart of our mission is the call to embrace and uplift those who are often overlooked or neglected in society.

"Real religion is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight." James 1:27

Building Leaders is Our Mission

We are dedicated to fostering leadership within our community, guided by the Great Commission. By making disciples, baptizing, and teaching them, we equip individuals with the skills and spiritual depth necessary to lead and serve both in the church and beyond. We accomplish this through the teaching of God's Word in our church services, small groups, and our Bible Institute, LOVE+UNLTD EDU.

“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,[a] baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20

Sharing His Story is Our Purpose

Our core purpose is to proclaim the transformative message of God's good news to all corners of the earth. We accomplish this through local outreach in our city, supporting church planting nationally, and engaging in mission work in Cuba and Haiti. Additionally, we prepare and encourage our congregation for  one-on-one evangelism, enabling each member to share gospel with the people God places in their paths.

“Go into the world. Go everywhere and announce the Message of God’s good news to one and all.” Mark 16:14

Cultivating Community is Our Pursuit

We are dedicated to building a vibrant, supportive community. By sharing each other's burdens and practicing forgiveness, we not only strengthen our bonds but also fulfill Christ's teachings through our collective actions and caring spirit.

“Live creatively... forgive each other... share each other's burdens, and so complete Christ's law.” Galatians 6:1-3

Generosity is our heart

Generosity means going above and beyond what's expected. We view it as a privilege and take joy in sharing our time, talents, and resources generously. We lead by example in our giving, inspired by the abundant gifts we've received from God. It's our honor to give back to Him.

“A stingy planter gets a stingy crop; a lavish planter gets a lavish crop. I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give. That will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in the giving.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7

Lead Pastor

Mark Rodriguez

Pastor Mark was born and raised in Miami to Cuban immigrants. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Leilani. They have three beautiful children Kaleb, Joshua, and Stella. It was at the young age of 10 that he felt the call to ministry, which marked his path for decades to come. His love for God’s people and compassion for those that don't know Him can be seen throughout his life. His vision is to see God’s love cover Miami—that’s where LOVE+UNLTD was born.
