Saltmakers Church

We're bringing a new life-giving church to South/Southeast Dallas.

Why Another Church In The Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex (DFW) Saltmakers Church, formerly Kingdom Word International Church, is a new gathering of authentic Christ followers who are passionate to see everyone know, love, follow and share Jesus. This passion arises from the life changing experience Jesus caused in our lives and the joy and purpose He brought us. We have answered the call gladly, therefore, to help others in DFW know, love, follow and share Jesus. We know there are already many large and established churches in DFW. This area hosts some of the largest mega-churches in America. DFW also has thousands of smaller churches seemingly on every corner. So, why has God called us to plant another church in DFW? There are three reasons. 25% OF DFW IS UNCHURCHED The number of unchurched people living in DFW is the first and most important reason God called us to plant another church here. By definition, unchurched people do not follow Jesus or attend church consistently. And according to the Barna Group, 1.75 million (25%) of the approximate 8 million people living in DFW are unchurched. Other research groups believe the number of unchurched people in DFW is much higher. Whatever the correct number, God loves unchurched people. He wants them to become His disciples, and He has called us to accomplish this for Him. MANY TRADITIONAL CHURCHES The number of traditional churches in DFW is the second reason God called us to plant another church here. A traditional church is one that’s more committed to worn out irrelevant customs than reaching the unchurched. We are not criticizing our fellow churches, but traditionalism will not reach the unchurched. God has given us some new and improved methods to reach this tech savvy, easily distracted generation without changing the core message of the Kingdom. COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION Lastly, we have a heart to transform the inner cities in DFW. Communities like South Dallas in Dallas and Stop Six in Fort Worth are infamous for poverty, crime and drugs largely because churches failed to infiltrate, occupy and transform them with the Kingdom of God. Consequently, satan took over these communities. We, on the other hand, embrace our mandate of infiltrating, occupying and transforming South Dallas, Stop Six and other inner-city communities in DFW. We welcome the challenge!

Mission: We exist to make authentic, fully devoted Christ followers who salt the earth.

The Fundamentals of Faith

MOST PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND FAITH: But to live the victorious life you must understand and live by the faith. Enjoy this short video that introduces the subject of faith.

Breakthrough Faith for Breakthrough Victories - Saltmakers Church

Sometimes regular faith isn't enough. You need breakthrough faith to get pass that struggle or situation that's been dogging you for years. Learn more in this article! When doctors diagnosed the HIV/AIDS disease in the 1980s people were in horrible fear.  And for a good reason, the condition became a scourge. Some even considered it a curse from God. Since then it has devastated many lives. Today people don’t fear the disease as much. That’s because of the ad...

[06/08/18]   THERE’S ALWAYS HOPE IN CHRIST: I didn’t know Anthony Bourdain but I loved his show on CNN. I watched it weekly. You couldn’t tell that he was suffering.

I’ve dealt with suicide in my family and it’s painful for those left behind. So, if you have thoughts of suicide please, I beg you, do these things:

1. Accept Christ if you haven’t. With Christ it’s very hard to be hopeless regardless of your challenges. 1 Timothy 1:1
2. Reject suicide thoughts. If there’s no mental illness, demons are the source of the suicide thoughts. You must diligently reject their thoughts. It’s called spiritual warfare. 2 Cor. 10:4-5
3. Please please talk to someone (spouse, friends, children, pastor, coworkers, etc.) Don’t suffer silently. Don’t isolate yourself. You’re loved and needed.
4. And always get professional help. You may be suffering with undiagnosed mental illness. If so, there’s no shame no more than if you are dealing with a physical illness. Just please get help! Proverbs 11:14.

The National Suicide Hotline is 800-273-8255

[05/26/18]   Black men need to love Christ, live holy and lead their families. Many fail at this due to an unprecedented and historical satanic attack on black masculinity for 4 centuries. The solution is rearing black boys to be strong Kingdom men. This is part of the vision of SALTMAKERS CHURCH!

Join us tomorrow for Church in the Park at 10:30 am as we hold church service at the Mildred Dunn Park in South Dallas. We’re taking the kingdom of God to the streets!

[05/17/18]   I bless everyone who reads this post! I bless you, your family, career, business, body, mind, church, and all that concerns you. BE BLESSED IN JESUS NAME! Receive it!

THE WORK CONTINUES: This picture is of me preaching 21 years ago after my wife and I moved back to my home town and started a church. Some folks thought I was crazy. Our children were toddlers. Our focus was unchurched/street people like it is today.

Many unchurched came and got saved, white and black. Most were uneducated and even some dropouts like me. But they received the Kingdom Word of Faith message.

To help them in the practical matters, we also started a GED program, voter registration, after school, prison ministry and so on. God blessed those same people to return to school and get degrees. One is even getting a PhD. They are now leaders in church administration, college administration, pastor/bishop, business owners, etc.

As Paul said of the Corinthian church, these people are proof of my apostleship. I love them dearly. I could’ve gotten much, much more people saved and on the right path but like Jesus some of my family and hometown people couldn't see the anointing on my life and they missed their blessing. Nevertheless, now God is doing the same life-changing work in Dallas.

THE BIBLE ISN'T A RELIGIOUS BOOK: Instead, it contains God's solutions for sin, sickness, poverty, fear, marital problems, wayward children, mental illness, racism, etc. Come learn it's contents at Saltmakers Church. Learn more at

[04/02/18]   HERE'S WHAT I SEE: I see Saltmakers Church where every chair is filled, the lines are outside the door, hundreds are getting saved weekly, God is healing people from all manner of sickness and diseases, the spirit of poverty is being broken from people's lives, divorces are being cancelled, the youth are turning to Christ like crazy, we're having multiple services, and we're planting multiple life-changing churches.

Thankful to our launch team members who worked hard and sacrificed to make our launch service a success. Thankful too to those locally and around the world who prayed, promoted, and partnered with us financially. I'm even thankful for the naysayers because you made us work and pray even harder. We love you all!

Should Christians Tithe - Saltmakers Church There’s so much confusion about tithing. Opinions abound about whether Christians should tithe. Some say Christians shouldn’t tithe because God implemented it under the law. Others argue preachers teach tithing to swindle folks out of their money. Both are wrong. I struggled with tithing for yea...

[03/15/18]   Jesus followers, the Lord desires and promises to bless households not just individuals. Claim His blessings for all the members of your household. It’s their birthright.

[03/10/18]   SOUL WINNING IS THE PRIORITY: Here in DFW it's sunny and warm, a great day for street preaching and soul winning. So, we're headed to the streets to fish for men. The mall, work, car washing, haircuts, etc. can wait. We have work to do. We're three weeks away from our launch service and Jesus could return any second! Please pray for us.

Please Help Us Save and Change Lives

Please Help Us Save and Change Lives - Saltmakers Church is a radical and dynamic new church made up of believers who hate religion.  Let that sink in.  We don’t prescribe to religion.  Did I lose you? Are you asking yourself how a Christian church can claim to be non-religious? 

[03/03/18]   I declare and decree that Jesus is gonna use Saltmakers Church to release spiritual revival and economic renewal in South Dallas!

The pouring rain and overflowing streets remind me of Malachi 3:10, which says:

Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

One-tenth of your income belongs to God. He claimed it in Leviticus 27:30. If you fail to bring it to Him, He considers it robbery.

Here's something else you must know about God-He cannot lie! It's impossible for Him to tell a lie. And He promised in Malachi 3:10 to open His windows and pour out overflowing blessings to everyone who brings a tenth of their income to their local church. It's God's promise to you, not mine.

So, as you watch the rain pour and streets overflow with water just know that God promised to release the same watering for those who obediently tithe to their local church.

He also promised to rebuke or prevent the devourer (curse) from destroying or blocking the blessings of those who tithe. Curses are unexpected occurrences that wipe out or block your blessings before you're able to enjoy them fully. Curses can be repossessions, job loss, unexpected repair or replacement bills, chronic unemployment, costly sickness, etc. Tithing causes God to prevent these curses.

Don't be deceived by the thinking that says you cannot afford to tithe. Truth is you cannot afford NOT to tithe. You need God to bless the remaining 90% of your income after you tithe. He'll make it go further than a cursed 100%.

Be obedient to God, start tithing immediately and watch God fulfil His promises.


Don't become cynical in this negative world or because you have had tribulations. Prosperity is still God’s Will for His children. Prosperity means having an abundance of peace, joy, wisdom, and yes money. It also means enjoying a good family life, marriage, health and great children.

3 John 2 says more than anything God wants us to prosper and be in health However, that Scripture also informs us that we’ll prosper to the degree that our souls prosper (i.e., our minds, will and emotions). Hence, prosperity is first a function of our thoughts, decisions, choices, words, etc.

Once our souls are in alignment with the Word of God that is aligned with God’s wisdom and knowledge we will possess the power, skill and insight to prosper and build wealth.

In sum, it’s awesome knowing that we serve a God who doesn’t want us struggling in life and has empowered us not to. Of course, everyone will have tribulations but God wants and equips us to overcome tribulations and enjoy life to the fullest!

[02/19/18]   We’re planting our church in South Dallas where the median annual income is $13,000 and 29% of the people live in poverty and many of the men are unemployed. This shows the great need for the Kingdom of God in South Dallas. The Kingdom of God for us in practical terms is Jesus, Jobs and Justice! If you love God and share our compassion for the poor please get involved at
