Church History

BRIEF CHURCH HISTORY

FPFK KIlifi Church InfrontThe FPFK Kilifi church started in the year 2000. It was on 1st June 2000 when the senior pastor, Reverend Kibeh invited all pastors in Kilifi to pray and dedicate a premise which had previously been used as a night club at Mnarani.

The first service was held on Sunday of 4th June 2000 which registered attendance of 7 worshippers. The new church conducted a door to door evangelistic campaign in the neighbourhood in the subsequent week with a success of 12 converts. However, the next Sunday of 11th June none of the converts showed up. Instead, the number of worshippers remained seven.

On 18th June 2000, the number of attendants grew from 7 to 12 as some of the new converts started to join the church. One of them was notably a lady who was a Munazi (local brew) beer seller. She is a church member to date.

By 25th June 2000 the number of church membership had grown to 33. It is this time that it became evident to Pastor Kibe that there was a certain sequence in the numbers: 7, 12, 33. This explains the presence of God. The church continued to grow and in the year 2002 the pastor realized that there was a need for a Church constitutional cover.  

 Pst Kibeh remembered well that he had been baptized by Bishop David Kiragu of  FPFK church many years before and the visit of FPFK missionaries missionary Stig and Mirja to Kilifi played a significant role in acquiring an FPFK cover too. These two encouraged Pastor Kibeh to write a letter to the Coast Region Council to request for the church cover. Bishop Kiragu was by then pastoring at Ukunda FPFK Church. This encouraged him to proceed with the cover request.

 Pastor and Mrs Kibeh were invited to attend the region council meeting which was held in 2003. It was in this meeting when they were officially received by the region and the Kilifi Church was placed under Likoni Church. 

FPFK Church KilifiGod was faithful in the progress of the church and approximately 50 members were able to purchase half acre plot at Kilifi Plantation in the year 2004 at a cost of Ksh 500,000.00. On 6th February 2005 the church moved to the new church plot where we had constructed a new church structure.

 The members had raised money through friends and personal contributions. Missionary Stig and Mirja contacted their home church in Sweden who in turn gave Kshs 200,000.The church building was officially launched on Sunday 6th February 2005 with a total of 80 members.
