Purpose

Our passion is to develop a new breed of Christian media with cutting edge creativity and a spirit of excellence; to source, create and present world class anointed, prophetic and supernatural content; to broadcast relevant, highly creative programming straight from the Father's heart filled with His glory and anointing, His power and presence, reconciling man, woman and child with God by the power of the Holy Spirit.


Mission statement

SOULS / MEDIA MISSIONARIES - "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15 Preaching, teaching and discipling. Taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth.

ISRAEL / INTERCESSORS - "Jerusalem, I have set intercessors on your walls who shall cry to God all day and all night for the fulfillment of His promises. Take no rest, all you who pray, and give God no rest until He establishes Jerusalem and makes her respected and admired throughout the earth." Isaiah 62:6-7 Defending Israel, praying for Israel, proclaiming the Good News of Messiah Yeshua to Israel, interceding for her and praying for the coming revival of the Jewish people.

REVIVAL / EVANGELISTS - "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord, and that He may send the Messiah Jesus" Acts 3:19-20

We are calling people around the world to repentance, broadcasting the move of God around the world, celebrating the Holy Spirit by showcasing the presence and power of God.


Statement of faith

We Believe...

The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.

The divine inspiration of the Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God's wrath and condemnation.

The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequences.

The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit.

The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world.

The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.

History

In his 20 years at GOD TV, Rory built up our far-reaching distribution taking GOD TV from Europe to the world, including our launch into the USA in 2006 and raised a diverse team of some 200 people, including our regional directors and network of regional offices worldwide.

In her 22 years at GOD TV, Wendy Alec was responsible for the development of the GOD TV brand and created a unique programming schedule bringing different ministry streams together, from the prophetic to the evangelistic and featuring must-watch LIVE events.

The now global network was first known as the Christian Channel Europe, the Continent's first daily Christian television network. It started broadcasting on 1 October 1995, just 2-hours-a-day but steadily grew to 24-hours-a-day in 1999. The 'GOD' logo appeared in 1997 and the Christian Channel was rebranded as the GOD Channel and became GOD TV in 2002. Rory resigned from GOD TV in 2014 and Wendy handed the mantel over to Ward Simpson as the new Leader of GOD TV in 2016.

GOD TV's CEO Ward Simpson and the GOD TV team and family of viewers honor the ministry's founders for their unshakeable faith in establishing GOD TV 'Against All Odds' and the foundation they built over two decades. The work they started continues from strength to strength as God blesses this network that bears His name.


Program accomplishments

GOD TV is a Christian broadcasting network that reaches over 450 million viewers in over 200 countries around the world.
