Welcome to Matthew Robert Payne Ministries
Matthew Robert Payne was born into a Christian family and as a child, attended a traditional Baptist church with a strong focus on the Word of God. At the age of 8, he gave his life to Jesus and attended church every Sunday morning and evening until he was seventeen.
Matthew was abused at 14 and this caused him a lot of trauma which resulted in some very dark years of addiction and a season away from church and God. Throughout all those years in the wilderness of faith, Jesus proved to be a faithful friend
At 27, Matthew was introduced to a Pentecostal church and enjoyed the vibrant life he saw there. In a vision, Jesus instructed Matthew to be baptized in water, and came out of the water baptized in the Holy Spirit.Within a week,while praying for his ex-wife, Matthew began to speak in tongues. However, Matthew had conversations with Jesusfor years before he was baptized in the Holy Spirit.
