Think faith thoughts. Speak faith words! Kenneth Hagin (Erwin) was born on August 20, 1917. His parents were Lillie and Jess Hagin of McKinney, Texas. Kenneth was born with an abnormal heart and an incurable blood disease. At 15, he was paralyzed and bedridden. At age 16, he died and saw hell 3 times. After the third death, he repented and asked God to heal him. He received his miracle. At 17, after high school, he became a preacher.
Kenneth Hagin began as a Southern Baptist preacher. He began to study supernatural healing and miracles. Later, like Paul Crouch, he became a Pentecostal minister. At age 20, he pastored 6 AOG churches. He saw the first of 8 prophetic visions of Jesus. He believed God was calling him to Christian field ministry. This move would prepare him for his future All Faith Crusades. He taught at least 5 basic evangelical beliefs. They are faith, divine healing, the anointing, miracles, and prophecy. Mark 11: 22-24 was one of his favorite Bible references.
Former personal mentor for Kenneth Copeland, Kenneth Hagin began his global media vision. He established the Kenneth E. Hagin Evangelistic Association, now Kenneth Hagin Ministries. A magazine and radio broadcast were next. A publishing house, audio sermons, and a video teaching site followed. Christian literature for biblical research is available.

Global colleges and churches were built. Alumni-ministerial and correspondence school facilities were added. Youth and children’s ministry activity centers and more are also a part of his vision.
