William was called as the pastor of Glory Baptist Church after the former pastor, David Ngetich, was sent to start a church in Kericho, the main town in the region.
Testimony of Conversion
I was brought up in a non-Christian family where there was no Bible or mention of God. Several times, when I was young, evangelists from evangelical churches would come to visit and talk to my parents. As they talked to us, I could not understand them well. On a Saturday in 1980, I got to listen to one of the evangelists preach. It was then that I realized that I was a sinner, and that I could not have fellowship with God. He read from Romans 6:23, that the wages of sin is death but God has given us a gift of eternal life in Jesus Christ. He explained that one receives salvation by faith alone in Jesus Christ. That is when I believed in Him and began to go to church on Sundays.
Now I have eternal life that is a gift from God. I did nothing to earn it, but Jesus Christ paid for my sins on the cross.
Call to Ministry
I was converted in an evangelical church back in 1980, where I slowly grew spiritually. I started an interdenominational Bible study group where we were discussing the Bible in general without guidance. In the process, I met Pastor David Ngetich, who introduced me to Reformed teaching. I later joined him in planting Glory Baptist Church from 2000 to 2019 when I moved home to take care of my ailing mum.
After being introduced to the Reformed faith, I felt the burden of preaching the Word of God in line with Biblical truth. I joined Kisumu Reformed School of Theology under Pastor Naphtally Ogallo, where I am still undergoing training. Recently, Glory Baptist Church requested me to replace the outgoing pastor.
