The vision of The Bible Channel is to make disciples of Jesus Christ and plant house churches without boundaries and equip the church leaders to be effective in shepherding their congregations in the Arab world and the 10/40 window via satellite TV.
Nearly 100 million homes have access to satellite television in the Arab World.
The Culture of the Arab World
The culture of the Arab world is one of enjoying television, video and satellite television broadcasts, so much so that even in great poverty a large majority of people will own a television and video cassette recorder and even a satellite dish. Because of the hospitable nature of the Arab culture, often friends, neighbors and relatives gather together in one home to watch television.
With nearly 100 million households now having access to satellites, satellite broadcasts are able to take Bible teaching programmes right into the heart of the Arab World, overcoming political and religious boundaries.
Until now, all television in the Arab world has been government controlled.With access to over 200 TV channels, satellite is now considered to be the best source of international uncensored news & entertainment. Considering that many in this region can read little more than their own name, a Television screen is their window to the world.
The greatest challenge facing Christians as they enter the 21st century is how to enable the people who have the least opportunity in the world, to discover the love, peace, truth and saving power of Jesus Christ.
The church in the Arab world is growing; there are now between 15 to 20 million Arab Christians.
Most of these brothers and sisters are living where they do not have freedom of religion and lack of human rights. In some countries within this region it is illegal to participate in church and, in others, they cannot own a Bible or Christian literature. Because of these restrictions, many Christians have been deprived of the fellowship and teachings of the Word of God.

Will you help us to provide them with Bible teaching programmes through satellite TV?
