King of Kings Lutheran was founded in 1983 here in Wasilla and began work reaching out to the residents of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley. With an emphasis on the word of God, relevant preaching, and outreach, King of Kings has grown in size but our core beliefs haven't changed a bit. We still focus all we do on God's word, proclaiming forgiveness to our friends and neighbors.
Everything we do is a fruit of our faith. God sent his son Jesus to take away our sins and remove our guilt forever, so it's only natural that we serve him with thanks. King of Kings Lutheran is an important member of the community. Through our Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and other events we enjoy actively helping our friends and neighbors in all sorts of ways.
Our Mission Statement: "As men, women, and children united in faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, we joyfully serve God, teaching and professing His true Word and serving the spiritual and physical needs of the people of our congregation, community and world."
Pastor Robbin Robbert is currently serving the congregation. Pastor Robbert graduated from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in 1997 and served a congregation in Wisconsin from the time of his graduation until May 31st, 2012. From June 1st of that year until the present he has served here. His wife is Jessica and they are blessed with 5 children from 21-11.
King of Kings Lutheran Church is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS, characterized as theologically conservative, is the third largest Lutheran church body in America. With national offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WELS began in 1850 when three German pastors met in Milwaukee. Today, it has grown to over 1200 congregations in North America. It has over 400,000 baptized members, which includes over 300,000 communicants, served by over 1000 pastors.
The synod operates four ministerial education schools: Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wisconsin; Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minnesota; Luther Preparatory School, Watertown, Wisconsin; and Michigan Lutheran Seminary, Saginaw, Michigan.
