MISSION AT FIRST LIGHT

At First Light, we are putting out an APB in the East Bay

Jesus describes Himself as the Light of the world.  As His followers we are asked to let His light shine, through us, to a dark and dying world.  We are called to do this in the APB - the Antioch / Pittsburg / Bay Point area - because a good percentage of the residents in this area are continuing to stumble and fall helplessly in spiritual darkness.  We want to be the ones to share the life-saving light of the Gospel with them for perhaps the very first time!

WHY ANTIOCH / PITTSBURG / BAY POINT?

Antioch / Pittsburg / Bay Point - is a strategic area for locating a church plant for several reasons:

IT IS THE HOME OF PEOPLE IN NEED

These cities have higher crime and lower income rates than other cities nearby.

IT HAS A DIVERSE POPULATION

With approximately 35% white, 35% Hispanic and 20% African American, this area has the potential to ripple the Gospel outward in all directions.

IT IS EXPERIENCING AND WILL CONTINUE TO EXPERIENCE A RAPID INFLUX OF GROWTH

The gentrification of San Francisco and Oakland has caused and is causing much of their population base to flee to Antioch, Pittsburg and Bay Point to seek affordable housing and relief from severe taxation.

OUR GOAL

To begin a  “Church Planting Movement” (CPM).  A “CPM” requires an exponential increase. It compounds when one church becomes two; two churches become four; four churches become eight and so on. This type of increase only occurs when new churches are started by the churches themselves and not by the initial church planters.
