DR KENNETH HAGIN SR BIO,
AUTHOR, TEACHER, THEOLOGIAN, MINISTER, BRIEF,
(All NewtonStein "INSPIRED-INERRANT" Bible View!)
CHRISTIPEDIA™ - DR KENNETH HAGIN SR. BIO, CHRISTIAN, THEOLOGIAN, MINISTER, BRIEF,
Dr. Kenneth Erwin Hagin was brought into this world by God on August 20, 1917, just at the end of the Great War! (Later called WW-1)
Dr. Hagin went home to be with the Lord on September 19, 2003.
Dr. Hagin was an influential American Pentecostal preacher. He is often referred to as the "Father" (or "granddaddy") of the "Word of Faith" movement.
Many of his followers - Kenneth Copeland, Jerry Seville, Michael Murdoch, Jesse DuPlantis - often refer to him affectionately as "Dad Hagin", "Pappa Hagin" and more commonly "Brother Hagin".
Kenneth Hagin; Biography
Kenneth E. Hagin was born in McKinney, Texas, the son of Lillie Viola Drake Hagin and Jess Hagin. He was married to Oretha Rooker. They had two children, a son named Kenneth Wayne Hagin Jr., who is presently the pastor of Rhema Bible Church and President of Kenneth Hagin Ministries, and a daughter named Patricia Harrison.
Kenneth Hagin's most quoted and most-oft preached and taught scripture was Mark 11:22-24!
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou removed and be thou cast into the sea, and shall not doubt in his heart,
but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Kenneth Hagin; Beginning to preach;
According to Hagin's family, Kenneth Hagin was sickly as a child, suffering from a deformed heart and what was believed to be an incurable blood disease. Kenneth Hagin related that he was not expected to live and became bedfast at age 15.
In April 1933 during a dramatic conversion experience, Kenneth Hagin reported dying three times in 10 minutes, each time seeing the horrors of hell and then returning to life.
He also claimed that he was raised from a deathbed on August 8, 1934 by "the revelation of faith in God's Word" (Kenneth Hagin, I Went to Hell and What Faith Is).
Two years later (age 18) Kenneth Hagin preached his first sermon as the pastor of a small community church in Roland, Texas, 9 miles (14 km) from McKinney.
During the next twelve years he pastored five Assemblies of God churches in Texas: in the cities of Tom Bean, Farmersville (twice), Talco, Greggton, Texas, and Van.
Kenneth Hagin; Establishing a faith-based organization
In 1949 (age 32), Kenneth Hagin began an itinerant ministry as a Bible teacher and evangelist. Hagin was at this time also given full admission to the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International (FGBMFI) which had been established in 1951.
He was also a part of the Voice of Healing Revival in the U.S. in the 40s and 50s together with Oral Roberts, Gordon Lindsay and T. L. Osborn.
In 1963 (age 46), Kenneth E. Hagin Evangelistic Association was incorporated, and the offices of the ministry moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1966.
That same year, he taught for the first time on radio — on KSKY in Dallas. In 1967, he began a regular radio broadcast that continues today as Faith Seminar of the Air. Teaching by his son, Rev. Kenneth Wayne Hagin, is also heard on the program.
Since its inception in 1963, his organization grew to include numerous media outreaches and ministries.
>> Faith Library Publications – with 65 million book copies in circulation
>> "RHEMA Praise" – a weekly television program on the Trinity Broadcasting Network
>> "Faith Seminar of the Air" – a radio program heard on many stations nationwide and on the Internet
>> "The Word of Faith" – a free monthly magazine with roughly 600,000 subscribers
>> Crusades conducted throughout the nation
>> RHEMA Correspondence Bible School
>> The RHEMA Prayer and Healing Center, located on the Rhema campus in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
>> In 1974, (Age 53 )Dr. Kenneth Hagin founded RHEMA Bible Training Center USA, which now has training centers in fourteen countries and has 0,000 alumni. (AD 2010)
>> In 1979, he founded the Prayer and Healing Center there to provide a place for the sick to come to "have the opportunity to build their faith." Its Healing School continues to be held free of charge twice daily on the RHEMA campus.
Dr. Kenneth Hagin: Theology
The Statement of faith of Hagin's Rhema Bible Training Center is identical to that of the Assemblies of God and most other major Pentecostal denominations.
(Rhema Bible Training Center Information Pamphlet; 16 Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God).
E W KENYON:
Additionally, as mentioned above, some of Hagin's theological beliefs and teachings were similar to those of E.W. Kenyon. For example:
Physical Healing: It is always God's will that a believer be physically healed of any sickness or infirmity. (Luke 5:13; 1 Pet 2:24).
Hagin based the belief of healing for all on the understanding that healing for the physical body was included in redemption. If redemption was available to all, then healing would also be available to all. (Word of Faith magazine, 6/90; 7/92; 8/92; 12/92, Kenneth Hagin, Redeemed from Poverty, Sickness and Death and Healing Belongs to Us).
Material Wealth: It is always God's will that every believer be 'financially blessed' through faith. Although Hagin emphasized that material prosperity was a redemptive blessing, he never taught that living by faith excluded hard work and wise business practices.
In his later years he wrote a book entitled, "The Midas Touch" in which he wrote sharply and correctively about the so-called prosperity gospel and many of the extreme teachings that were being circulated under this heading.
He warned the body of Christ of the dangers of greed and explained that the purpose of financial blessing is for the furtherance of the work of the gospel.
[SOURCE: Dr. Kenneth Hagin, How God Taught Me About Prosperity and The Midas Touch!].
Faith and Authority: Dr. Kenneth Hagin believed that the believer through his position in Christ had authority over elements of this world and elements of the satanic world. By faith the believer can exercise the authority of God to change impossible situations into possibilities (Luke 1:371:37) (Mark 11:22-24).
Faith, to Dr. Kenneth Hagin, is a matter of belief in God's word which also entails a vocal expression of God's Will or confession thereof. According to Dr. Kenneth Hagin, God has promised to answer believing prayer and respond positively to the believer's exercise of faith
(Kenneth Hagin, I Believe in Visions, What Faith Is, Bible Faith; A Study Guide).
Salvation: Dr. Kenneth Hagin claimed in several of his books that he physically died three times as a child. Each time he descended to hell but was brought back to life when a voice spoke. On the third trip to hell, Dr. Kenneth Hagin claims to have asked Jesus for forgiveness and salvation. Crying, 'God! I belong to the church! I've been baptized in water' twice, to no avail, he cried out a third time.
It is at that point, he claims, that he was saved and brought back to life a final time. Hagin goes on to say that his mother was praying so loud when he arrived back in his body that "traffic was lined up for two blocks on either side of our house!"
After this dramatic experience, Dr. Kenneth Hagin came to believe that church membership and water baptism were not sufficient to save but rather the 'new birth worked by the power of the Holy Spirit' in response to a personal confession of faith in the Lordship and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Even though it seems that this new birth could apparently be had even after death, it is only that he was already 'coming back to life' that he was saved.' (ibid., Word of Faith magazine, 10/01, Kenneth Hagin, The New Birth; I Went to Hell).
Substitutionary Act: Dr. Kenneth Hagin spoke of Jesus' death in substituionary terms. The doctrine of 'Substitution' as taught by Hagin differs widely from the same doctrine as taught by many other branches of Christianity.
The normal theory of Substitutionary atonement is that the son Jesus paid our debts, previous, current and future to the Father within the Godhead. Dr. Kenneth Hagin claimed that Jesus died as the substitute for all of humanity, as do most Christians (Bible, 2 Cor 5:14-15),
but also believes that Jesus suffered the torments of hell for three days and that He 'defeated the devil', stripped him of all authority and was resurrected after being 'quickened in spirit' or 'born again'.
Dr. Kenneth Hagin held that those who received Christ were born again and shared in the benefits of Christ's resurrection and power through their identification with His death, burial and resurrection. (Kenneth Hagin,The Name of Jesus; The Triumphant Church).
Sacred Scriptures: Hagin's beliefs followed in the reformed tradition in that the Bible is viewed to be the literally true, inerrant word of God as written by men under the guidance of the Spirit of God.
Although Hagin often spoke of the dramatic spiritual encounters he claimed to have had, he always insisted that faith was to be established upon the word of God alone and not upon the experiences of man. Many times in his ministry he made the statement,
"Don't believe anything because I said it. Search the scriptures and prove it out for yourself" (Kenneth Hagin, How You Can Know the Will of God and The Believer's Authority).
Dr. Kenneth Hagin: RHEMA Bible Training Center;
Hagin founded Rhema Bible Training Center (RBTC) in 1974. RBTC is an educational accreditation Bible institute located on 110 acres (0.45 km2) in Broken Arrow, a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma (USA).
The curriculum is taught from a Charismatic/Pentecostal heritage.
There are seven ministry concentrations specializing in Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, Evangelism, Pastoral Care, Missions, Biblical Studies, and Supportive Ministry. RBTC has also established training centers in Austria, Brazil, Colombia, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Romania, Singapore, South Africa, the South Pacific, Thailand, Nigeria, Zambia, and Egypt.
After Dr. Kenneth Hagin's death in 2003, his son Kenneth W. Hagin continued to run the institution. RBTC has trained over 40,000 graduates who reside and minister in more than 100 countries.

Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.
Thus we trust, hope and pray, that ALL BELIEVERS who look to the Lord Jesus ONLY, to the Word of God ONLY, to "His will (ONLY!) being done on this Earth AS IN HEAVEN"
In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:
