Meet Pastor Warren L. Henry, Sr.
A modern-day John the Baptist

Along with his message that the kingdom of God is at hand, he has been crying out throughout the years for justice and equality in housing, employment, and many other areas of life.

Inside the Kingdom
Pastor Henry is an avid disciple and scholar of Kingdomology, the study of the kingdom of God. Intense study of the kingdom, has taken him inside the government of God and how God's citizens are to live according to His constitution. Pastor Henry's research has also given him a greater understanding of Reignology, an empowerment of God through the Holy Spirit that teaches God's original plan for humanity and that through the atoning work of Christ, we are able to live and successfully fulfill that original plan. Each week Pastor Henry continues to cry out from the pulpit, promoting "the spirit and unity of oneness", with hopes that everyone will recognize and embrace it as the key to experiencing the equality and justice we are all entitled to, while reigning in God's kingdom.
