Welcome to Firstlight Broadcasting Network

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.

Apologies - "Mary, the Mother of Jesus" - episode 2
Has been replaced with "Laws of Life and Death" - episode 1 and 2

Sincere apologies if you have been following the Ps Stephen Bohr series called "Mary, the Mother of Jesus" and were looking forward to the next in theis series.  We discovered a problem with the sound on the second episode of this series.  It is back to the drawing board with this series until we can get the technical issues fixed!  We'll start the entire series again sometime after Christmas once we have worked through what has caused the problem.  We apologise for the inconvenience and ask you to please be patient.

Meanwhile we are airing another great study by Ps Stephen Bohr called "Laws of LIfe and Death."  This is running in the same time slot. 
Episode 1 (The Bible's Two Mysteries) airs on Monday at 10:30pm and Wednesday 7pm and
Episode 2 (The Two Crowns) will be broadcast on Friday at 1pm.

If you absolutely can't wait for us to show the rest of the Mary Series, you can view them on YouTube!

"Classic Sermons" - with Joe Crews

For those who have never seen Joe Crews (the Founder of Amazing Facts) in action and for those who remember his presentations from many years ago, we bring you Classic Sermons from the past.  This collection was originally filmed in 1986.  The messages are as powerful and relevent today as they were then.

"Thinking Spiritually" presented by our very own LOCAL Pastor Adrian Webster

This series is pure dynamite!  You will not want to miss it!!!
This is a collection of Biblical sermons and teachings that deal with a wide range of subjects.  There is something in this collection for everyone!  Each topic is intended to clarify the Bible's teaching and apply the key concepts to practical, everyday life.  You will discover who Jesus is and why He is still relevant in this day and age.
