Kenneth E. Hagin
was born in McKinney, Texas
, the son of Lillie Viola Drake Hagin and Jess Hagin. According to Hagin’s testimony, he was born with a deformed heart
and what was believed to be an incurable blood disease
. He was not expected to live and at age 15 became paralyzed and bedridden.
In April 1933 he converted to Christianity. During a dramatic conversion experience
, he reported dying, due to the deformed heart, three times in 10 minutes, each time seeing the horrors of hell
and then returning to life.
He remained paralyzed after his conversion.
In 1936, he founded his first non-denominational church. He preached his first sermon as the pastor of a small, community Baptist church in Roland, Texas. In 1937, he became an Assemblies of God minister. During the next twelve years he pastored five Assemblies of God churches in Texas: in the cities of Tom Bean, Farmersville (twice), Talco, Greggton, and Van. Van, Texas was the last church he pastored before starting to travel.
