2.7 Billion Have Never Heard of Jesus
“How shall they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without someone preaching to them?” – Romans 10:14
Persecution. Geography. Isolation. These three words are the dominant reasons more than 2.7 billion people around the world are kept from hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. FEBC is an interdenominational ministry who seeks to break down these three barriers by sharing the Good News to the world through radio, the Internet, and emerging technologies.
With a reach of more than 3 billion people, in 105 languages, across 49 countries, indigenous broadcasters give of themselves tirelessly by developing fresh, relevant and life changing messages. And our listeners respond, every day.
For many, FEBC broadcasts are their first and only exposure to the hope of Jesus Christ. For others who don’t own a Bible, it’s the only way to grow in their faith.
In addition, relationships are the heart of our ministry. With Christ as our model, we build long-lasting and deep relationships with our listeners (phone calls, emails, letters and personal visits), local pastors, and even with governments (some of them hostile to Christianity, but not always to FEBC).
Be inspired by the testimonies of faith that we receive each day. With your support, we are opening hearts and changing lives in some of the most dark and desperate places around the world through our Christian radio stations and ministries. Their words speak to the results, far better than we ever could.
For 70 years we’ve been committed to one thing: Sharing Christ with the world.
Our Great Affection:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
What FEBC is Commited To
1. FEBC focuses on meeting the spiritual needs of our listeners.
FEBC exists for the sole of purpose of meeting the spiritual needs of our listeners. We will not depart from or compromise that goal.
2. FEBC strives to reach the least reached people.
Many millions are untouched by globalization and technology and their only contact with the outside world is through their radio. We often refer to these groups as the “forgotten peoples” of the world. We will continue to bring them the good news of God’s love and feed them on their spiritual journey with Him.
3. FEBC seeks to reach the most strategic population centers in our ministry areas.
The tools God has given us are ideal for reaching the forgotten peoples of the world, but they are also ideal for reaching the highest-density population areas. This is why we have local, community-based stations in strategic cities like Manila (10 million) Moscow (8 million), Seoul (10 million) and Jakarta (9 million). As God enables us, we continue to build our network of strategic local station outreaches in areas like Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and Ulaanbataar, Mongolia, and Bangkok, capital of Thailand. We believe God has called and equipped FEBC to minister locally in these and many other vital population centers of this needy world.
4. FEBC is committed to the Bible as God’s inspired Word and the primacy of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
We do many wonderful things in our programming: on-air counseling, call in discussion forums, music, specialty programs for women and children, health and educational programs. These broadcasts make a significant impact in the lives of our listeners. But what matters most is each individual’s decision to receive or reject God’s offer of salvation through Jesus Christ. We will not allow our focus to drift from this central and eternal issue. Since we take the Bible as God’s Word to humanity, we will teach it faithfully to our listeners.
5. FEBC will make its decisions based on God’s leading and principles, not on human wisdom.
FEBC is a ministry, not a business. We exist to fulfill God’s purposes and that means doing things according to His leading, His principles and His timetable. There will be times when we sense Him leading us to do things that might not make sense from a human perspective. FEBC’s history is filled with such “foolish” endeavors. Just as our predecessors did, we will seek God’s guidance and when He leads us we will obey.
6. FEBC will trust God to provide for all our resourcing needs.
In 1946, one of FEBC co-founders, John Broger, traveled to Manila to try to establish FEBC’s first radio station. He completed the government application for a license and spoke with a man in the Radio Department Office. The Filipino behind the desk looked at the form and asked Mr. Broger why he had not answered the question: How will your proposed station be financed? John Broger’s response to the man was: “Sir, we have faith in God to meet our needs.” “Faith! What do you mean?” the government official asked. “We believe God will supply all the money through dedicated Christians to build this station and keep it on the air. We will not be receiving any money through advertising. God will supply all our needs.” 63 years later, that station is still on the air, along with more than 100 stations worldwide. Through His people, God has provided multiple millions of dollars of support over the past six decades. He called FEBC into existence and He will provide for it. We continue to look to Him to supply every need for this ministry as we move into the future.
7. FEBC will seek to glorify God through our work.
The Kingdom of God has only one King and all of us in it work for Him and His purposes. When God expands our work, we want the emphasis to be on His power in doing so. If God chooses to prune us and bring us trials, we will seek to honor Him through our response. We are not trying to build our own empire or reputation. Our goal is for people to see and experience God’s power in ways that bring glory to Him.
FEBC is an interdenominational ministry whose sole purpose is to share the Good News to the world through radio, the Internet, and emerging technologies. In so doing, it seeks to cooperate with and support existing missionary efforts and the ministry of the greater body of Christ worldwide.
FEBC believes that Gospel radio ministry should present a consistent message for the edification of others. Cooperation in such an organization as this may be achieved and maintained only by loyalty to a common and positive agreement in the broadcast message. In Christ we have fellowship with Evangelical denominations and missionary groups, and base our cooperation upon the following great truths of the Bible.
