It All Began…

Bishop Keith Butler answering the call of God on his life at a young age, he and his lovely wife, Deborah, started Word of Faith Christian Center in January 1979. Services were held in a small, storefront building in Detroit, Michigan. Starting with just 10 people in attendance, including Bishop Keith and his wife Pastor Deborah, Word of Faith quickly grew. Currently, Word of Faith Int’l Christian Center is located on 110 pristine acres in Southfield, Michigan. International was added to the church’s name as a declaration of faith for the future world-wide ministry work that was to come. KBM (Keith Butler Ministries) is the fulfillment of that vision. 

In addition to his many accomplishments, Bishop Keith Butler is an author of several books. Some of his titles include, How To Handle Pressure With Skill, Faith for Life, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, and his daily devotional, Fresh Water.
