Bread of Life Evangelistic Outreach is a Christ-centered non-denominational church. The evangelistic ministry became a church in 1990 in Redwood City, CA. In 1994 the church moved to East Palo Alto and currently has its Sunday Service starting at 10:30am at 1796 Bay Road, East Palo Alto, CA (in the community center).
Our membership are people from East Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Hayward, San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale and Fremont. Some who are clients of local community based drug and alcohol recovery organizations.
The congregation's leadership and membership reflects the faces, perspectives, experiences, and diversity of the local community.
Bread of Life's ministry provides a safety net for many in the community who are under siege by drug and alcohol addition, domestic violence, juvenile delinquency, the criminal justice system, broken homes and families, homelessness and the HIV/aids pandemic.
Bread of Life Membership is inclusive, not exclusive. The congregation includes individuals whose lives have turned around as a result of their relationship with Jesus Christ and their association with the church. They now serve as role models and providers of hope to those who seek support.
