Dr.K.A. Paul believes that every human being walking this earth – from the pigmy in Africa to the tribal in India, to the executives sitting in the high rise buildings of the world – must hear the gospel of Jesus Christ, At least once in his life time.
Dr. Paul was born to staunch Hindu parents in a village in India. In 1966, the family became followers of Jesus Christ. In his teens, He traveled with his Evangelist Dad to hundreds of villages in Andhra Pradesh. Dr. Paul soon learned that sharing the Gospel was not a natural career but a supernatural career. He saw how the enemy kept people blind and in bondage. He also discovered that his Source and power to open blind eyes, was a gift from God. He learned to live by faith at an early age. At 19,Dr. Paul had a special encounter with Jesus Christ. God gave him a vision of Hell and in that vision he heard loud screams and saw thousands of people falling into Hell. This changed his life and he decided to become a full time minister of the Gospel. Dr. Paul took the challenge and moved to an adjoining state and learned the language. During this time, He experienced hardship and slept on Railway benches, cow stables, open fields and often went for several days without food. Dr. Paul went into the deep jungles and met with lot of resistance. In one encounter Dr. Paul was kidnapped and beaten. In another major encounter, He was beaten and left for dead.
