Way of the Cross was founded in 1960, by Pastor J Isabel and Herlinda Sifuentes, and their 4 children: Irma, Phyllis, Ralph, and Joe. Prior to coming to Riverton, Wy they lived in Mexico and then Worland, Wy. In September of 1960 Pastor J. Isabel Sifuentes perceived God calling him to preach the gospel. In Riverton, they began to conduct services in a two room house. In 1962 Pastor J. Isabel and Herlinda Sifuentes purchased the property where their house and the original church was located. They donated the land for the church, then proceeded to build the church out of their own finances and labor. They dedicated the church in September 1964. As founding Pastors they labored for 22 years and seen many accept Jesus as their personal Savior. They resigned in 1982.
In 2000 a new church was built across the street from the original church. Way of The Cross was dedicated October 20, 2002.
The current Pastors are Keith and Kim Williams. Their heart is to see Jesus Christ save the lost and their desire is that his presence be experienced in a powerful way by those who attend our services. Pastor Keith and Kim want to see each person fulfill the potential and purpose God has for their life.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13
