Kirk Cameron is best known as the lovable teen heartthrob Mike Seaver, of the award winning series "Growing Pains." He is also known to many Christians as Buck Williams from the Left Behind films, based on the bestselling novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins.
But much more noteworthy than his acting career was his conversion to Christianity. Kirk was not raised in a church-going home and described himself as a devout atheist from a very young age. By the age of 14 he was so convinced there was no God that he laughed at those who thought there was.
But that all changed one afternoon as he sat in his sports car pondering the first Gospel message he had ever heard. You can hear Kirk's testimony in his own words by visiting www.wayofthemaster.com.
Kirk continues to be actively involved in quality family entertainment and travels throughout the country, making the most of every opportunity to further the Gospel. He speaks in schools, churches and at community events. He is also a producer and host of The Way of the Master television series and radio program.
Kirk and his wife, Chelsea, have six children and live in southern California.
God is not a lovesick celestial being, hoping for some nice person to ask Him into their heart so He can make them happy — as though He has a man-shaped hole in His heart that only we can fill.
As a Christian, the good news is that you are no longer a slave to sin.
Let love swallow your fears and go for it.
