After a dramatic encounter with the Holy Spirit, Rev.Samuel Rajkumar Patta who was then pursuing his Charted Accountancy was stirred in his heart to committing his life full time, to serve the Lord. After working in several organizations, God birthed in him a passion and desire to plant churches & raise leaders for the service of the Lord. Thus was the Genesis of The King’s Temple.
Radical in his thinking, Rev. Samuel R. Patta desired to have The King’s Temple church in a Hotel Banquet Hall becoming a reason for ridicule and outright persecution from the traditional believers. But this did not stop him from pursuing his God-given dream to raise up a generation of young men and women who would lay down their lives for God’s Kingdom.
Rev.Samuel Patta is married to Ps.Merlyn Patta, a powerful woman of God and together they form an unbeatable team blessed with two children Steven & Deborah who also serve as full-time Staff in The King’s Temple.
Today, The King's Temple Church is among the fastest growing churches in India with seven services through the week with an active membership of over 10,000 people. The Church has always been a Word-based Faith church and will continue to be so as the burning desire of Rev.Samuel Patta and Ps.Merlyn Patta, is to see people grow in the Word, stand on the Word and manifest every God-given promise in the Word of God.
The Mandate of The King’s Temple is, Connect, Equip, Empower and Impact (CEEI). In one simple line, we can define it as Loving the LORD and Caring for HIS People.
The Church is not only known for its uncompromising Word but also Dynamic Praise & Worship, Foundation courses, Prayer Courses, Life-Transformation Camps, Bible College and personal touch through Life-groups, Efficient follow-up, Well-organised Tele-pastoring and Home Visits.
