First Place 4 Health started in 1981 as a ministry of Houston’s First Baptist Church. Since then, the program has spread to over 12,000 churches across the country with over a half million members!
This program provides a biblical approach to weight loss and overall health management. The crucial difference between First Place 4 Health and other weight-loss programs is the application of disciplines that affect your body, mind, heart and spirit.
Although weight management is most often our motivation for joining a First Place 4 Health group, the focus is not just on the body or on the number on the scale. That’s a crucial difference between First Place 4 Health and other weight-loss programs. By applying disciplines that affect the whole person—the body, the mind, the heart and the spirit—you will not only experience physical health but will also experience total health—health for life!
Members select a weekly Bible Study which – combined with prayer and Scripture reading – helps to impart God’s strength, empowering members to make long-lasting lifestyle changes.
