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!

"Magic Kingdom" - PGR
This documentary examines the underlying content and story lines of some of today's most popular cartoons. It reveals a battle between God and the powers of darkness for control of the hearts and minds of innocent children.
If you have young children, or grandchildren you absolutely should watch this eye-opening program.
Please be aware that we classify this program PGR.
This presentation is a much needed warning to parents, exposing the dangers of so-called children's programs/cartoons. Hollywood is subtly influencing the innocent minds of children by promoting direct opposition to the truths and moral standings of the Bible. Some of the highest grossing films aimed directly at children look to be fun and innocent but when dissected, it is obvious that satan himself is using these films/movies/cartoons to promote his ways and to turn the hearts of children away from God.
"From Broken to Breakthrough - Part 1"
Christian Berdahl, the product of an unplanned teen pregnancy and his family share their life story in this poignant three part series. This testimony chronicles the life of one family's amazing passage in finding healing with God. There is a positive outcome for those who will allow the blood of the Lamb to bring them from "Broken to Breakthrough." This is Part 1 of their journey.
Invitation... If you are unable to attend a local church for Sabbath services, then please join the growing Firstlight viewing Family nationwide for our Saturday "Church In Your Home" program. We warmly invite you to fellowship with us on God's Holy Day.
