Rafael B. Cruz is a powerful example of the American Dream. Born in Cuba, Rafael lived and suffered under a cruel, oppressive dictator. He began fighting Batista’s regime as a teenager and was imprisoned and tortured simply because he wanted to be free.
Rafael arrived in Texas in 1957 on a student visa. He got a job as a dishwasher, making 50 cents an hour, and worked his way through the University of Texas, while learning English. He later built a small business in further pursuit of the American Dream.
In early 1980, Rafael Cruz joined the State Board of the Religious Roundtable, a Judeo-Christian organization that mobilized millions of people of faith during the Presidential Campaign of Ronald Reagan.
He is an ordained minister and the Director of Grace for America, sharing the Word of God in churches and Pastors Conferences throughout the United States.
His son, Ted Cruz, is a constitutional conservative U.S. Senator from Texas and candidate for United States President in 2016.
When Ted was a child growing up in Houston, Rafael would tell him, “When we faced oppression in Cuba, I had a place to flee to. If we lose our freedom here, where do we go?”
That is why Rev. Cruz is passionate about returning America to the biblical and historical foundations that made this country exceptional.

Rafael is an Evangelical Christian. He believes in the inerrancy of Scripture as the inspired Word of God; in only one God manifested in Three Persons as Father, Son and Holy Spirit; in the deity of Jesus Christ (all God & all man), the Son of God, without sin, born of a virgin; that all men are sinners in need of redemption; that salvation is solely by grace, not of works, through faith in the atoning work of Jesus Christ through the shedding of His blood on the cross; that through salvation we inherit eternal life; that Jesus resurrected on the third day and is seated at the right hand of the Father; that as Christians we are to be involved in the Great Commission and to be salt and light to those around us; that He will come again for His church; that He will judge the unbelievers at the Great White Throne judgement; that He will establish His millennial reign upon the earth for a thousand years; that after the thousand years the devil and his demons will be cast eternally into the lake of fire;and that God will create a new heaven and a new earth, and that we will spend eternity in His presence.
