About us

Mission Statement:


To share LIFE! We want to know God and the reality of His power at work inside of us, and want to share LIFE with each other as a community of people deeply committed to one another. 

Please join us as we serve King Jesus, serve one another, and serve our community.

Vision Statement:


Sharing a message of hope.
We embrace the message of hope revealed in Jesus! 

Through Him, we find forgiveness for sin, a new life with God and the promise of everlasting life. We share this hope with all so that every man, woman and child might have repeated opportunities to hear, understand and respond to the good news of new life in Christ.

Living a life of grace.
We have a new life by the grace of God, secured in Jesus. We cannot earn this
life but have received it as a gift. God treats us with grace and patience, and we treat others by the same principles.

Growing together in faith.
Embracing a message of hope and living a life of grace, we seek to grow in the
depth of our relationship with God and our relationships with each other. Together, by God’s grace, we are building a community of faith that presents the Gospel, nurtures faith, teaches truth, encourages growth, and practices forgiveness, mercy and love.

Brian Wheeler

Brian joined the KBC staff in 2021. He began playing the piano at the age of 4, and often refers to music as his first love. He is a pastor’s kid, and was playing piano in church at a very young age. 

While in college, Brian fell away from the Lord, and His call, and began working in many different fields, acquiring many “tools for the toolbelt” to now use in ministry. In 2018, the Lord called him back in an incredible and powerful way, and was ordained in November of 2021. 

Brian was installed as Lead Pastor at KBC on April 13, 2023 and is so very excited about what the future holds for the church and all of Western New York! 

Brian is married to his best friend Gia, and has 2 amazing children, Abby and Zachariah. Outside of work and ministry, Brian is a blackbelt in taekwondo, loves to camp, enjoys nature and travel with his family, and loves to make meaningful connections throughout the community in ministry, business, and friendship.
