In 1981 Bishop Jerry Macklin turned the light on in the City of Hayward, California, and found violence, gangs and a drug infested community. By faith he remained fearless, even against threats on his own life. He was determined to plant a church, stand his ground and take more calculated steps to shake the kingdom of darkness for the sake of the Gospel. The payoff of his convictions has been miraculous. What was once an urban war zone is now a thriving, prospering place of hope.
