Welcome to Firstlight Broadcasting Network

See below for details about new programs that are now being aired on Firstlight!

The Firstlight channel is broadcasting nationally 24/7 via the Freeview|HD (UHF terrestrial) network on Channel 26.

Firstlight is run by a team of dedicated volunteers with the common mission to proclaim God's love throughout New Zealand. Firstlight aims to broadcast the best selection of ground-breaking Christian programs sourced from 3ABN, Amazing Facts, It Is Written and other international and local sources as they become available.

While our programs are based on Christian principles, we believe the program topics will be of great interest to the general public and not just limited to a Christian audience.

Please continue to help us with your prayers and with your financial support.  We cannot keep your favourite Firstlight channel up on air without YOUR ongoing support!
Check out this week's Program Schedule to see what is showing and what is coming up on Firstlight.

The Great Controversy Vol 1

"The Great Controversy
Volume 1"

This informative documentary gives a sweeping overview of the Reformation and a conflict that began thousands of years ago which has touched every continent and culture. The battle is still raging and the prize at stake is the soul of every human being who has ever lived.

The Great Controversy Vol 2

John Wycliffe


"The Great Controversy
Volume 2"

From the purity of the Reformation, watch as history repeats itself in our age through false philosophy and open apostasy. Follow the ongoing battle between the powers of good and evil as they contend in our present world and modern church. This documentary unveils the fallacy behind today's ecumenicism with eye-opening interviews and never-before seen footage.
