We are disciples of Christ. A husband and wife duo serving as a vessel to spread the gospel and lead others to Christ. We are a veteran and black owned business, but it's about God, not us. God's word is the blueprint of our lives and God First Apparel reflects the life we are called to live. Though we're not perfect, God is and we acknowledge that as we die daily to sin. We strive to do the will of our Father as best as we can. We want to inspire others to do the same.
As my wife and I were dating we strived to live Christian lives putting God first as our core in everything. We decided to start God First Apparel (GFA) with the intent of spreading the gospel and edifying other Christians and non-Christians through fashionable representation. We started the groundwork in 2018 and officially launched in 2019. We want believers to use God First Apparel as a gateway to openly express their faith in a way that promotes evangelism through fashion. We want our apparel to help Christians start conversations and spark nonbelievers interest, leading them to Christ. We want our customers to be able to make fashion a part of their faith walk. We want non-believers to see the light of Christ in us and anyone representing God First through our apparel.
That is why our brand is based on Matthew 6:33, seeking God and his righteousness first. Everything else will follow as God workout the best for those who love Him and live according to His will.
There are many aspects to who we are, what we are trying to accomplish, and why we do things the way we do, but everything always leads back to God.
We feel that God has done a lot for us throughout our lives and has blessed us with each other as we continue to grow and move forward in our journey as Christians. We have so many things to be thankful for.
The triangle represents the Trinity; God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit working as one entity with three functions. We strive to always put God first in everything we do. Big or small, God has to be first and at our center. So, GFA on the inside for God First Apparel means throughout everything we do, God is first.
We create original designs customized to glorify God, not self. Our designs remind believers to keep God first with the aim to inspire non-believers to do the same. We create with the purpose of reflecting the lives we live. Each design is inspired by God's word. We merge scripture, creativity, and art to generate fashionable merchandise that spreads the gospel.
