Are your children equipped? Were we being equipped with the Word when we were growing up? Are we repeating the equipping or lack of now to our own children? For what reason did many of the Jews realize that Paul was telling the truth about Jesus? During ancient Hebrew customs, when it came to training a child, how old was old? More than even praying over our children what should we be doing for them?

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.

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.

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.
