God called Dr Allan and Pastor Janine Bagg, two weeks after they committed their lives to Jesus Christ. They believe they received a two-fold instruction commanding them:
- To equip the Body of Christ for the work of the ministry, and
- To teach His people to prosper
Janine had been miraculously healed of a terrible disease called Fibrous Dysplasia, experienced deliverance out of extreme financial debt and later gave birth to a daughter after doctors told them that neither of them would be able to produce children. Today they have three wonderful children: Brittany, Michaela and Joshua.
In enquiring from God why more people were not teaching this uncompromised Word of His, God commissioned Allan to do just that.
On 23 January 1994, Allan Bagg Ministries held their first service as The Bay Christian Family Church. Growing from a handful of people, the church today exceeds 8000 members and is affiliated with Christian Family Church International under the leadership of Drs Theo and Beverley Wolmarans.
Today The Bay CFC has expanded its reach into two seperate geographic locations. and Dr. Allan now teaches as senior pastor at both The Bay CFC Helderberg, and The Bay Southern Suburbs campus using live link technology.
The Bay CFC is currently one church in two locaitons and the local ministerial arm of Allan Bagg Ministries.
