Who are we, and who was Richard G. Butler? We are the continuing direct-line Church of Jesus Christ Christian as originally founded by Dr. Wesley Swift of Lancaster, California. After Dr. Swift’s death, the church has been carried on by Richard G. Butler, who named Harold Ray Redfeairn his successor to Aryan Nations in 2003. 

The church is now, as of late 2016, being carried on within Aryan Nations by Pastor David J. Miner, Morris L. Gulett’s successor, who was Harold Ray Redfeairn’s successor, through a Warrant of Authority issued by Kingdom Identity Ministries, the official successor ministry of Dr. Wesley A. Swift. The Church of Jesus Christ Christian is the true Church of Christ, teaching not the “doctrines of men” – but rather the doctrines of the Prophets and Jesus The Christ, Yahweh Yahshua….

Mr. Butler received his formal education and training in southern California, including Aeronautical Engineering at Los Angeles City College. His early experience in the aircraft industry included management of maintenance assembly and repair of major assemblies for commercial and military aircraft in the United States, Africa and India.

In 1946, and the following 18 years, he organized and operated a machine plant for the production and precision machining of automotive parts and engine assemblies and aircraft parts. Subsequently from 1964 through 1973, Mr. Butler was a marketing analyst for new inventions. In 1968 he became a Senior Manufacturing Engineer for Lockheed Aircraft Co. at their Palmdale, California, plant, where extensive development was under way for the L-1011 aircraft. He resigned from this corporate associate’s to devote full energy and time to his greatest and all-consuming desire to serve God and Nation.

Pastor Butler is a co-inventor for rapid repair of tubeless tires and holds both U.S. and Canadian patents thereon. He is a pilot and during World War II was among other duties, a Flight Engineer Instructor in the U.S. Air Force. His background reflects a broad experience in the United States and foreign countries concerning alien races, their work habits, status of “culture” and “religions.”

Returning home from wartime activities in 1946, Mr. Butler was deeply troubled concerning the future of his nation from what he had observed first hand overseas and events resulting from governmental edicts that seemed to be always contrary to the best interest of the nation, and of the White Race, in particular. While active in business life, the closest thing to his heart was the future of his nation; therefore, most all available spare time was spent studying and delving into various service and political organizations, trying to arouse attention of friends, acquaintances, members of fraternal organizations, and business associates into action concerning the threat of Jewish communism.

The media publicity received from these efforts, while nearly disastrous to business and professional life, turned out to be the greatest of all blessings, in that he was led to Kingdom Identity with the meeting and forming of the closest, most rewarding of all personal relationships with Dr. Wesley A. Swift, starting in 1961 and continuing until Dr. Swift’s passing in 1971.

The years of study were spent under Dr. Swift in his magnificent library with line upon line, precept upon precept, and revelations over the years from Dr. Swift and Rev. Bertrand Comparet. They shared the blows of the enemy from their combined efforts in the Christian Defense League, of which Pastor Butler was the National Director from 1962 to 1965.

Upon the passing of Dr. Swift, Mr. Butler continued holding services for the congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ Christian, until he moved to northern Idaho to expand the Kingdom Identity program and to form the foundation for a “Call to the Nation” or Aryan Nations.

We seek to let every Aryan son and daughter of Yahweh know what their duty is to the Covenant (Constitution) that Yahweh their God has made with them as Nations of His people and His blessings come to, or are withheld from, a Nation-so is it that each citizen of the Nation is either blessed or cursed. The rewards are in direct proportion to the ACTION and WILL of the Nation, for our people have the “Law written on their hearts.” We seek to live and establish a government under the Law of God, for Your Race is your Nation.
