Sharing the Gospel through Radio
Sharing Christ can be dangerous, and often seems logistically impossible, but international Gospel broadcasts go where missionaries cannot go. Even in the most remote and dangerous locations, FEBC International can quickly and effectively reach a potential audience of billions.
For many, this is their first and only exposure to the hope of Jesus. For others who don’t own a Bible, it’s the only way to grow in their faith.
Why We’re Different
With a reach of more than three billion people, and local programs in unreached tongue, indigenous broadcasters give of themselves tirelessly-by developing fresh, relevant, and life-changing messages.
In addition, relationships are the heart of our ministry. With Christ as our model, FEBC International builds long-lasting and deep relationships with our listeners (phone calls, emails, letters, and personal visits, and with local pastors, and even governments (some of whom are hostile to Christianity, but not always to FEBC International).
Developing New Technology
The ministry has always been committed to one thing: sharing Christ with the world.
While capitalizing on its strength in radio for those in hard to reach areas, FEBC International now reaches more people and new generations with the development of new technologies such as: Internet Streaming, Satellite Podcasts, Mobile Devices, and other new media technologies.
Small Investment, Eternal Rewards
The math is simple, and the return on investment is eternal:
$120= 60 minutes of the Gospel broadcast to millions
$60= 30 minutes of the Gospel broadcast to millions
$30=15 minutes of the Gospel broadcast to millions
Each year, more than 15,000 requests for radios flood ministry offices. Here’s why…
While technology is exploding-and handheld devices and social networking have become primary sources of information and communication-in other parts of the world radio, continues to play an important role in sharing Christ:
- Radio reaches people living in isolated and desperate areas of the world, who otherwise would have no access to the Gospel.
- Radio is the ideal medium to break through barriers of illiteracy. Radio allows 793 million people worldwide to hear what they cannot read.
- Radios are prized possessions in remote areas; a single radio often serves an entire village.
- Radios can be heard in countries and cultures where Christianity is forbidden. A Muslim or Buddhist interested in learning about Christ might not open their door to a missionary, but often listen privately to a broadcast.
