"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." -Habakkuk 2:14
FirstLove Publications officially began in 2006 when Pastor Joe Jacowitz of Christ Bible Church in Dublin, California published “The New Testament Missionary” by missionary Cliff Hellar, and freely gave away copies from his kitchen table.
Eventually the publications list grew to 5 different book categories (Evangelistic, Apologetic, Devotional, Doctrinal, & Pastoral) representing a total of over 50 titles.
In August 2017, the warehouse was moved to Versailles, Kentucky and overseen by Ben Walden of Sovereign Grace Baptist Church. During this time the weekly orders for books increased from 20 orders per week, to over 120 orders per week.
In 2019, the warehouse operations were moved to Christ Evangel Church in Navarre, Florida where it was being overseen out of a large garage by John Durst and the brethren of CEC.
Christ Evangel Church eventually merged with First Baptist Church of Bagdad in 2022 and the warehouse was relocated to the church facilities where it is currently still being overseen by John Durst.
