Kenneth Erwin Hagin was a renowned American preacher. He pioneered a movement known as the Word of Faith. He is also considered to be an important figure of the prosperity gospel. He was born in McKinney, Texas. At the time of his birth, he was very small and lifeless, and the doctor who delivered him thought that he was a stillborn. Miraculously, he survived. As a child, he used to be very sickly, suffering from an incurable blood disease as well as a deformed heart. However, he eventually healed and became healthy. This was attributed to the power of the divine. It is also believed that Jesus himself appeared to him several times, guiding him throughout his life and career. Over the course of his career, he was known by many names such as ‘Dad Hagin’, ‘Brother Hagin’, and ‘Papa Hagin’ to his followers. He had never received formal training in theology; however, he later received an honorary doctorate from the Oral Roberts University. He passed away at the age of 86 in 2003.
