Our Story

King of Kings Church began in 1962 with 75 members. Since then, God has broadened our reach and influence in the city reaching over 2500 people every weekend.

It is our desire to partner with other life-giving churches to see our city, region and beyond reached with the Good News of Jesus. King of Kings is affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, a mainline Protestant denomination.

What We

Believe

Who Is Jesus?
Jesus Christ is God’s perfect Son, who through His birth from the Virgin Mary lived a sinless life on earth 2,000 years ago. He voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross for us. His death gained salvation for all who receive it as a gift by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only Mediator between God and us. He will return to Earth to conclude all things and reign forever.

Who is the Father?
God the Father is creator of the universe and maker of everything in Heaven and on Earth.

Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ, creates faith in our hearts and equips believers for personal growth and service to God.

What is Holy Communion?
On the night before Jesus died on the cross, He shared the last supper with His disciples. This experience that happened many years ago, leads us to celebrate Holy Communion. Jesus invited us to share this gift until He returns, so that we may have forgiveness of sins, strengthening of faith, and the power to live God-pleasing lives.

God’s Word tells us that when we receive Communion, we are not merely receiving bread and wine, but the body and blood of Jesus Christ.

Baptized adult Christians are invited to share this great gift of God.
We ask that children experience our First Communion Classes in 5th & 6th grades before taking communion.

If you have questions about Communion we encourage you to talk with one of our pastors after Worship.

Our Purpose

At King of Kings, we transform lives. We do this through connection: connection to God, connection to each other, and connection to our world.

We know that there is no greater calling than to be part of what God is doing in this world. We want to join Him on His mission of transforming hearts and lives.

Our Values

Our values support our purpose and shape the culture of our church. God has given us a bold purpose, and we feel we can best honor and deliver on that purpose through our values.

Reliant – We depend on God.
Courageous – We take new ground.
Authentic – We share our lives.
Generous – We love others well.

Jesus said “Go and make disciples of all the nations”

Matthew 28:19

Our

History

King of Kings held its first worship service on February 4, 1962 in the Western Electric auditorium, near 120th and I Streets with about 75 people in attendance. In 1963 we broke ground to construct our own building at 124th and West Center Streets. God blessed the congregation throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, with four building expansions that eventually resulted in a 35,000 square foot facility and more than 2,500 members. King of Kings also supported and planted other congregations in these decades.

Keeping our eyes on God and obeying His leading, we purchased a 266,000 square foot manufacturing plant at 116th and I Streets. On September 11, 1994, the congregation dedicated phase one of the conversion of the building. In 2004, King of Kings’ members approved the purchase of 131 acres on the northeast corner of Highways 370 and 50 as we look to future growth.
