Dr. Wesley A. Swift, the son of a Methodist minister, was called to preach in his teens. He was a dynamic, inspired speaker who taught uncompromising Biblical truths ignored by modernist ministers. His anointed preaching brought forth a high spiritual dimension of understanding to the Sacred Word. Even the antichrists (Jews) acknowledge that, “Wesley Swift is considered the single most significant figure in the early years of the Christian Identity movement in the United States.” Dr. Swift founded the Church of Jesus Christ – Christian in the 1940’s, a ministry that spread the Identity message nation-wide to YHVH’s Children, the White Race known as “sons of God”. By teaching these truths to true Israel, this warrior-priest put fear in the hearts of the enemies of Christ. Following Dr. Swift’s death in 1970, upon his passing away, the Church was handed down to his stalwart student, Pastor Richard G. Butler. Pastor Butler’s vision of the Church becoming a community & a witnessing tool led him to north Idaho to give birth to “Aryan Nations”, the political arm of the Church. Both entities were intended to complement each other. It was to be a Christian Identity organization that was part of a Christian Identity Church. We are highly honored to be able to continue Dr. Swift’s work, preserving and earnestly contending for “the faith which was once delivered unto the saints”.
Dr. Wesley A. Swift received his call to preach in his teens, and was licensed to preach by the Methodist Church at 18. Shortly after his ordination he attended a lecture by a Kingdom Identity Minister. Certain facts of the Bible were presented that are not taught in the standard Christian churches. This started him on a life long search to find the truth of the Bible, regardless of any churches’ particular creed. The results were both happily exiting and darkly foreboding. Exciting because of finding the true heritage and covenants of the White Race; terrifying because most churches were daily degenerating into a preaching amounting to Babylonian Judaism and calling it Christianity. These False Prophets were unknowingly (or knowingly in some cases) delivering the covenants of true Israel to the enemies of Christ. Dr. Swift was a dynamic, inspired minister. He established the Church of Jesus Christ Christian with congregations in San Francisco, Oakland, Lancaster, Riverside, Hollywood and San Diego. He worked with Gerald L. K. Smith in Washington D.C. to hold the line against creeping communism, illegal immigration and many other vital issues. His life, fortune and sacred honor were expended to fulfill his ministry, as warrior priest of true Israel.
