Purpose

Our vision is to recognise, source, create, package and present world class anointed, prophetic, supernatural content in a spirit of excellence across the globe into every nation, reconciling man, woman and child with God by the power of the Holy Spirit.


Mission statement

With a servant's heart we will equip His Body to reach the lost through media. This ministry exists to enable every television household to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ so that they may believe in Him, call upon His name, and be saved.


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.
