City of Light International Church Church History

On September 28th, 2007, City of Light International Church of CA, Inc. (Lighthouse FLC – Suisun City, CA) was birth and born out of much prayer, consecration, and the leading of the Holy Ghost. It was officially founded and established as a registered corporation in the state of California by 3 board members – Elder Phillip L Pete, Sr., First Lady Rehema K. Pete, and Elder Aundre Fletcher. The church was headquartered in Suisun City, CA but held services in the city of Richmond, CA.

On Friday January 18th, 2008, Elder Phillip L. Pete, Sr. and Sister Rehema K. Pete were officially installed as Pastor and First Lady by our Overseer and spiritual father Dr. Marvin L. Sapp. And on Sunday January 20th, 2008, City of Light International Church of CA, Inc. held its first official service at Pastor Pete’s original home church Greater New Bethel Ministries @ 101 Market Street in the city of Richmond, CA. The power of God really moved in the midst.

While in continual prayer and consecration, there was a press in Pastor Pete’s spirit and heart to do ministry in the city of Suisun. He felt a connection with the city as a whole and believed the city was more in-line with what God had envisioned Lighthouse to do, which is build and restore the family through kingdom biblical principles and concepts. On Sunday December 5th, 2008, City of Light International Church of CA, Inc. relocated from 101 Market Street in Richmond, CA to the Suisun/Fairfield, CA area, after 10 months of faithful service to the Richmond area, and after receiving a release from God to evangelize in Solano County.

We began holding services at the Fairfield Community Center @ 1000 Kentucky Street. While at the Fairfield Community Center, the church began to experience explosive growth and maturity. Ministry and opportunities of service was extended to us within the Solano Juvenile Hall Center, the Suisun City council, the Suisun Police Department community outreach, and Crystal Middle School.

After many changes within the ministry, Pastor Pete prayerfully decided to relocate the ministry within the city limits of the city of Suisun. And in 2012, the church relocated to our now current location at 601 Whispering Bay Lane in the city of Suisun. We are excited to see what God is doing and will continue to do in the midst of his people and our community.
