These radio broadcasts are supported by believers who gather in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and seek to follow New Testament church principles in the practice of their faith. Contrary to most other gospel outreaches, we do not ask for donations of any kind. God's message of forgiveness is free and without obligation.

Every religion in our world today stresses the importance of the need to do something in order to obtain the approval of a divine being, the forgiveness for wrongdoings, or the attainment of spiritual peace within. The Bible, however, is very clear in its emphasis that there is nothing that we are able to do to please God, that we are spiritually bankrupt. Over and over again, the scriptures point out how that eternal life and forgiveness with God is a GIFT – a gift that comes from God, not from us. That is really why the gospel is really all about good news – there is a divine solution to a tremendous problem that we are unable to fix ourselves.
The Bible speaks very simply of two roads and two destinies. One road is broad and very crowded. It has room for everybody’s opinions and ideas. It has room for every pleasure and distraction you can think of. Unfortunately, multitudes choose this road. It's easy and it steadily flows along day after day as we pursue our own desires. However, the other road is narrow. There’s no room for a hundred different viewpoints and a thousand different pleasure trips – there’s only room for God’s way, for righteousness and truth. Unlike the other road, this one goes up – upwards to heaven, and it’s a road we'd all be wise to choose.
How often we, as mere human beings, make our every day plans as is we are in total control of our lives. We forget the disclaimer often made in the Word of God - the little words "BUT GOD". Yes, God has the final word. Perhaps we face some very difficult circumstances in life, and there seems to be no way out. Or, worse still, we learn about our sinful condition before a holy God and come to realize that there is nothing we can do about it. It is wonderful to know that despite our condition and circumstances, there is a God Who is ready to step into our lives and make a difference.
The Christian faith is very clear on this one important fact - that there is salvation in nothing or no one else but the Lord Jesus Christ. Acts 4:12 states: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Man's universal problem is sin - and sin must be put away if we are to be on the right terms with a holy God. As sinners, we cannot do this ourselves. We need the intervention of another who has no sin of His own - that is, the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. And there is only one way to receive it - by trusting in His work alone.
Well, our broadcast today is one you won’t want to miss because it’s all about God’s wonderful plan of salvation for you. In Ephesians 1:7 we read these amazing words – “In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.” Yes, it can be a present reality for everyone who hears this message today. What greater possession than having the forgiveness of sins and peace with God? And where is this redemption found? In the person of the Lord Jesus Christ!
