How Gr​eater Light Community 

Church Started

Greater Light Community Church is a non-denominational church that was founded by Benjamin & Margaret Briggs. They started out by conducting in-home bible studies with children, and eventually blossomed into a church congregation. The first official service was held in January of 1995. Greater Light Community Church is located in the city of Perris, Ca. Many have commented that the rich instruction in God's Word is what attracted them to this body of believers. The freedom during Praise & Worship along with the utilization of all of the gifts is also evident throughout the services. Contact us today for more information about our church organization.

Get To Know Our Pastors

Pastors Benjamin and Margaret Briggs currently reside in the city of Moreno Valley. They were long time past residents of the city of Perris and are heavily involved in much of the community activities that continue to take place in Perris. Pastors Ben and Margaret were both raised in Compton, California. They both attended Willowbrook Junior High School, where they met. Pastor Ben then attended Centennial High School in Compton while Margaret attended Compton High School. Even though both schools were rivals, the two of them found common ground and began dating. They were married on June 23, 1973; and will celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary this year (2020). They have been blessed with three wonderful children: Patrick Briggs, Benjamin Briggs III, and Summer Williams. They also are able to enjoy sons and daughters "in love," along with eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren! They consider it a blessing to be able to work together as God leads them to provide the leadership for Greater Light Community Church. The church just celebrated twenty-five years of ministry and is pressing forward to continue the work that God has begun!

Testimonies Of Faith

“The first time I came to GLCC about 3 1/2 years ago, I knew it was exactly where God wanted me to be. From the timely word to the welcoming smiles and warm hugs; it just felt like home. Greater Light Community Church is so anointed and blessed with the spirit of God. Pastor and Sister Briggs have been the greatest and most encouraging Pastors/Spiritual parents anyone could ask for! They truly love God, His word and His people. I am so grateful for GLCC and the family that I have inherited.”

– Elder Tyrone Rhone

“I have been attending Greater Light Community Church since 2013. From the minute I walked in, Greater Light accepted me as family. My life truly has not been the same since. It has been better than ever. I have always been a believer in Christ and always have attended church; but this church believed in me and saw the good things in me that I didn't even see. They truly have encouraged me to be a better person in Christ.”
