About Penang First


Every church has next level potential.

As the church embarks on the journey of growth in the Acts 2 Model of Reaching our Next Level Potential, I would like to engage every one of you in this move. Significantly, as a body of Christ, we also need to engage the Holy Spirit to empower us to carry out the tasks set before us. Let us be found growing and serving the Lord together.

Our Vision

Love God, Love People, Love Life.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they might have life and have it abundantly. —John 10:10

And He said to them, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” —Matthew 22:37-39

Our Mission

“To equip believers by proclaiming the Word in order to empower them for service and world evangelism.”

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold I am with you always, to the end of the age.
—Matthew 28:19-20

See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant. —Jeremiah 1:10

Our Values

Unity and Harmony, Honesty and Integrity, Open Communication, Understanding and Acceptance of One Another, Teamwork and Cooperation,

  1. To enlist members to participate actively in ministries suited to them.
