Pastor & Mrs. Kam Ching
was born in Hong Kong and raised in Kaneohe, Hawaii. As a high school senior,
when he looked at the stars in the night sky, he wondered if it all was by
accident, evolution or by a “God.” He was also afraid of what would happen if
he died unexpectedly in his sleep. Driven to know, yet ignorant of how to find
God, he visited the many Asian religions in Hawaii and talked with Jehovah’s
Witnesses and Mormons. But nothing gave him peace or assurance of Heaven.
One day, a man named Max knocked on his
door. Pastor Kam thought this man was a Jehovah’s
Witness or a Mormon, and was surprised to learn he was an Independent Baptist
missionary from Tennessee. Max invited him to the church he had just started.
Pastor Kam eventually visited his church for several
services, and in June of 1970, he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Savior.
He finally had peace and assurance of eternal life!
After attending Bible college in Tennessee, Pastor Kam
returned to his home church and became active in every ministry available. This
was where he met his wife, Miranda. They were married in June of 1977. In the
late fall of 1987, Pastor Kam, Miranda and their two
small children started Independent Baptist Church in Honolulu.
They are the grateful and proud
grandparents of twelve grandchildren.
