Our Mission

To Be Lovers of God

Jesus said that the greatest commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul mind and strength” (Mark 12:30).    At King of the Nations, we are dedicated to helping each other cultivate and express a dynamic and passionate love for God – being fully aware that our love for God comes from knowing who we are in Christ, and how He Himself loves us.

To Be a Blessing to the Nations

The second greatest commandment, Jesus said, is to “love your neighbor as yourself” (Mark 12:31).  Our neighbors are the people who surround us.  In the Washington, DC area we find ourselves among neighbors from every nation. We know that the Lord wants to use His church to touch people from all nations through the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus. 

Our Values

Exaltation –we exalt Jesus as our highest priority, as everything else in our lives falls into order.

Evangelism –we have experienced new life in Christ and we love to share that with everyone that we can.

Equipping –through relationship with one another and through teaching, we learn to grow into our full potential in Christ.

Encouragement –we walk together, helping one another live God’s truth in our daily lives.

Empowerment –we believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to bring freedom to our hearts.

Expectation –Jesus is coming again and we eagerly expect his return.

What We Believe

• that the Holy Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:2)

• that there is one God manifested in three persons: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17, Gen 1:1, 26). Key attributes of God are his love as well as his holiness.

• that man is created in the image of God, but through Adams’ transgression, sin came into the world (Romans 5:12, Romans 2:23).

• that salvation is made possible through the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and that we are saved by repentance and faith in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. (John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9). Eternal life is obtained by faith and grace alone. On the other hand, faith without works is dead; righteous works will naturally spring from a life of abiding in Christ. Worship will also naturally flow from the redeemed, in praise of Him who alone is worthy.

• in the universal church consisting of people from every nation who, through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, have been born again by the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church, which is His Body on earth today. This church is not determined by denomination, or any effort of man, but by the sovereign work and possession of God as testified through the presence of His Spirit.

• in the sanctifying work of Holy Spirit in the believers, helping them to become overcomers and more Christ like. We believe that the gifts of the Holy Spirit can operate through believers today. Through signs and wonders the Spirit is bringing glory to Jesus and is positively impacting the nations (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Mark 16:17-18).

• in the five-fold ministry given by Jesus to the church to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and for building up the body of Messiah (Eph. 4:11-12).

• that Satan has been defeated through the finished work of Messiah, yet believers are involved daily in a spiritual war. So we must daily put on the full armor of God (Eph. 6:10-17).

• that God is faithful to His promises to His people Israel and desires to draw both Jew and Gentile together as One into covenant relationship with Himself. We believe that the Church has not replaced Israel but that God will fulfill His purposes for Israel in relationship to the Body of Messiah in these last days.

• in the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment (Matt. 25:46; John 5:28-29, 11:25-26; Rev. 20:5-6, 12-13). Unbelievers shall appear at the Great White Throne of Judgment and shall be cast into the Lake of Fire, not to be annihilated but to suffer everlasting conscious punishment and torment (Matt. 25:41-46; Mark 9:43-48; Luke 16:19-26; II Thess. 1: 7-9; Jude 6-7; Rev. 20:11-15).

• in the “blessed hope,” the personal, imminent return of Christ who will come for His Bride, the Church. Christ will visibly return, to establish His earthly, millennial kingdom (Ps 89:3-4; Dan. 2:31-45; Zech. 14:4-11; I Thes. 1:10, 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Rev. 3-10, 19:11-16, 20:1-6).

Our Pastor

Greg Zetts

Senior Pastor

King of the Nations Christian Fellowship is led by Pastor Greg Zetts. 

In 1981, after spending several years addicted to alcohol, Greg Zetts, re-surrendered his life to the Lordship of Jesus. Soon after, at age nineteen, he felt a strong call to enter the ministry. He attended Northwest Christian College in Seattle and Valley Forge Christian College in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1988 with a B.S. in Biblical Literature and Pastoral Ministry. Pastor Greg accepted a position as youth pastor and associate pastor with Christian Covenant Church in Rockville, Maryland where he worked alongside Dr. Eddy Swieson for nine years at Christian Covenant Church (CCC).

In the early 1990s, the Lord began to release vision in Pastor Greg for a local church that would embrace the five-fold ministry described in the New Testament in order to establish and advance the kingdom of God in people’s hearts; this church would be called “King of the Nations” from Jeremiah 10:7.

Pastor Eddy Swieson retired in September of 1997, and Greg took on the role of Senior Pastor. In 1998, the name of the church was changed to King of the Nations Christian Fellowship.

Pastor Greg and his wife Marji have five adult children, Melissa, Daniel, Emily, Hannah, and Benjamin, and reside in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Pastor Greg often travels overseas to minister to pastors and leaders in countries such as Mexico, Cuba, India, Vietnam, Ivory Coast, Brazil, Peru, Ethiopia and Kenya.
