Pastor David Berzins was born and raised in the south suburbs of Chicago. He grew up attending a Presbyterian church and while having a basic belief that God and Jesus Christ were real, he never really claimed the Presbyterian faith as his own. At the age of 20, while away at college, he was interested in finding out the truth about God so he started searching. The search ended in April of 1997 when he put his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
After his conversion, Pastor Berzins grew a little and found that the independent, fundamental Baptist churches were the most Biblically accurate. However, it wasn’t until 9 years after his salvation that he got “plugged in” to a good church and was baptized.
It was at Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, AZ that Pastor Berzins received his teaching and training to ultimately be ordained and sent out to pastor Word of Truth Baptist Church in November 2013.
Pastor Berzins married the love of his life in September of 2008. Leslie and David have 3 beautiful daughters and have been truly blessed by God as a family.
