Kenneth Hagin was born in McKinney, TX to Lillie Viola Drake Hagin and Jess Hagin. He was sick as a child, and not expected to live long. At age 15 during a dramatic conversion experience, he claimed to have died three times in ten minutes, each time seeing a glimpe of the horrors of hell and returning to life. Two years later he preached his first sermon in Roland, TX. during the next twelve years he pastored five Assemblies of God churches in Texas.
In 1949 Kenneth began his ministry as a bible teacher and evangelist. In 1966, the Kenneth E. Hagin Evangelistic Association ministry was moved to Tulsa, OK. He taught for the first time on radio that same year.
In 1968 Hagin published the first issue of The Word of Faith magazine. His publishing outreach (Faith Library Publications) has circulated worldwide more than 65 million copies of books written by Hagin as well as some authored by his son and other authors.
In 1974 the RHEMA Bible Training Center USA was founded, and since that time training centers in 14 other countries have been established.
Until his death, Hagin continued to travel and teach. He is sometimes nown as "The father of the Modern Faith Movement".
