Did AOC Just Accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior?


Did Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior?

Jose Riesco, who goes by Jose The Evangelist online, posted on his TikTok, Instagram and Facebook accounts a photo and a statement that he had the privilege of speaking to the New York representative in the Ronald Reagan Airport where the two discussed Jesus.

“Praise the LORD! Let us pray for our sister Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who I just led to faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST and prayed for her at Ronald Reagan International Airport, Washington, D.C.,” the evangelist wrote on Facebook.

The founder of Mark 16 Ministries, Riesco writes that he was on a ministry trip with Philip Renner Ministries. Riesco was heading home to Texas after preaching at a pride parade in Washington, D.C.

In an exclusive interview with Charisma Media, Riesco shared this story of meeting the congresswoman at the airport.

“She was very nice, very kind and respectful. And [the] first thing I said was, ‘can I pray for you?'” Riesco said.

“We both bowed our heads and we prayed…I prayed a blessing over her and then immediately went into a gospel presentation,” Riesco said.

Riesco said that Ocasio-Cortez repeated after him as they prayed the prayer of salvation.

“She was beaming after it,” Riesco said.

Riesco said he shared Romans 3:23 and 6:23 with the New York representative and when he had the chance to pray with her.

“I had the great privilege of leading her in prayer as she confessed out loud that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins and rose again and then finally, for the LORD to forgive all of her sins. She was extremely receptive and with no hesitation made this good confession. She was also very kind and respectful. I am so happy for her,” Riesco wrote on Facebook.

Riesco has also called for Christians to continue praying for Ocasio-Cortez and all of our nation’s leaders.

“Friends, thank you for all the love and encouragement. Let us keep praying for her and all of our leaders as the Scriptures command us to do,” Riesco wrote on Facebook.

In a video on TikTok, Riesco and Ocasio-Cortez smiled for a photo and said, “Jesus.”


I praise God for our sister, @Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who displayed incredible kindness by allowing me to pray for her, share the Gospel, and to lead her in a prayer of confessing her faith in Christ and repentance. I was so excited that I had to get a picture and even after graciously telling me she was in a hurry, made this awesome video you are now watching. The LORD bless her! I am also incredibly thankful to our brother, @philiprennerlife for bringing me to Washington DC and helping make this happen by the grace of GOD! #JesusIsLORD #Mark16Ministries #FacebookReel

While there were many positive comments about Riesco’s discussion with Ocasio-Cortez, others were left doubtful if there was a true conversion or not.

“The doubt in these comments is crazy and grieving,” one commenter wrote. “I love seeing this and am encouraged by it that God gave you such an opportunity to witness to her. Whether or not she bears fruit is between her and God, but she heard the gospel and received it and the seed was planted.”

Charisma reached out to Ocasio-Cortez’s office for a statement and did not hear back by the time of this article’s publishing.

Romans 10:9 says “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” If the prayer has been confessed out loud and believed in the heart, then the faith is true and will end up bearing fruit.
