The purpose of Transforming Love Christian Center is to teach the life-changing Word of God—holding fast to the BELIEFS of the Christian faith, BUILDING a bridge to our community through evangelism, and inspiring people to BECOME Christians that are passionate about deepening their  relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Our Outreach team in Oakland, California can certainly use your help. If you would pray upon reading this message, we would greatly appreciate it.  God's way is that believers should be self-sustaining, always giving all we can to advance His Kingdom.  Please pray about sharing a financial gift and then commit to His leading.  

OUR Vision


in Christ

FBI data shows that 83.5% of white murder victims are killed by white perpetrators—not much less than black-on-black rates (91%). Anyabwile contends the reality is people “commit crimes in their own neighborhoods against their own neighbors.” Thus urban crime is not so much a “race” thing as a “zip code thing.

We see TLC2 as a Christ-driven, multiethnic church of thousands focused on impacting the community by fortifying families, modeling Christian leadership, and becoming one through authentic pursuit of Jesus Christ.

What happens when God saves you? Why did the Lord blind Paul while he was on his journey to Damascus? Is God known to respond to your prayers during the same time you're praying? Is there a difference in serving God in ministry than serving your secular employer? Is it God's intention that we showcase all of our gifts before the masses? What do we know about the guy named Judas in Acts 9:11?
