KIF represents a diverse community of people journeying together to learn what it means to live, love, serve, and respect one another.
We are a Gospel-centered church, actively engaged in local and global culture through mission, evangelism, and thoughtful participation.
In KIF, we prioritize the importance of people over rigid structures or formats. We believe People are important (Jesus died for people) and everything in the body of Christ is relational. We desire and pursue meaningful relationships. Therefore, whether you are national or international, young or old, rich or poor, high or low in life- our doors are always open for you. Please feel free to join us in celebrating life together and being a part of this whole new, rich experience by sharing and learning from one another.
