The First Place 4 Health movement has taken the nation by storm! Started in 1981 as a ministry of Houston’s First Baptist Church, First Place 4 Health is a reliable, proven method of weight loss and healthy living. It continues to grow as a strong church program. First Place 4 Health has had groups in over 12,000 churches across the country—with over a half million members!

The tremendous success of First Place 4 Health is due to its biblical approach to weight loss and overall health management, which puts Christ first and improves every area of a person’s life. This Christ-centered, balanced weight-loss and healthy living program has guided hundreds of thousands of people to a healthy lifestyle and a closer walk with the Lord.

What’s unique about First Place 4 Health?

First Place 4 Health offers a series of Bible Studies. These studies address many issues of everyday life and provide opportunities for growth in Christ. Members complete a weekly Bible study which—combined with prayer and Scripture reading—helps to impart God's strength, empowering members to overcome temptation and make long-lasting lifestyle changes.
