After being raised in a typical protestant church and believing the good deeds way of salvation, God showed me through the witness of my wife’s family, and the preaching of the cross, of my need for a personal Saviour. At the age of 18, I was born again into the family of God. Through the years, we learned the importance of faithfulness and the principles of Christian living and the local church. God blessed our home with five daughters who love and serve the Lord.
After 20 years in the custom woodworking trade, God saw fit to call me into full time service. After several years of studies, service, and prayer, God directed our path to the town of Lander. Looking back over my life after my salvation experience, I praise the Lord for his providential leading in my life and family. Truly as the Scripture says, “Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
Pastor King, his wife, Dawn, and his daughters, Sarah, Hannah, Leah, Rebekah, and Deborah moved from the state of Maryland to Lander, Wyoming, in the summer of 2006. After nearly 20 years of serving the Lord in capacities of usher, Sunday School teacher, trustee, deacon, and pastor’s assistant in a local church, God burdened his heart for the need of fundamental New Testament churches in the western U.S.
Through the “foolishness of preaching”, God has always spoken His message to men. We believe in strong biblical preaching from the authoritative (KJV) text. Music, testimonies, giving, and prayer are all important aspects of every service, but the exposition of God’s Word is the highlight of the hour. Our Wednesday service has the emphasis on prayer: corporate prayer, intercessory prayer, and individual prayer needs. Our Wednesday Bible studies are always on the subject of prayer.
The need for churches to get back to the pattern of the first century church established in the book of Acts is critical in a day where American Christianity seems to be tossed about with every new religious wave.
Our church and family seeks to minister to young and old alike with an emphasis on having a Biblical home, and the essentiality of prayer and a personal relationship with a personal living Saviour.
