For the past 25 years GOD TV has been a LIGHTHOUSE to the nations – shining the light of Jesus Christ to all people through the powerful platform of media. We have been and continue to follow the commands of scripture in Acts 13:47: “For this is what the Lord has commanded us: ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth’.”
This has been no small feat. In fact, it has been a journey of a lifetime. This lighthouse has been through great storms, fought off pirates, endured hardships and persevered under great pressure and opposition from principalities, powers, and spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). We have been through dark valleys and seen the shadow of death, but thanks to the One who is faithful and merciful we have overcome. 1 Corinthians 15:57: “But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” Hallelujah!
From our very beginnings in the UK, when we were just broadcasting a few hours a day, to now when we have expanded all over the world, from Jerusalem to Judea to Samaria to the ends of the earth. WOW! Praise God! Look at what the Lord has done. The lighthouse that began shining in England is now reaching the whole world.
“Jesus said that you and I are the light of the world and that we should let our light shine before men in such a way that they may see our good works and then glorify the Father who is in Heaven” – Matthew 5:14
Together, we are the GOD TV lighthouse shining our light bright and far.
We are fulfilling the Great Commission by taking the Gospel message to all creation. We call ourselves (You and I) Media Missionaries! What a joy, what a privilege to partner together to see men and women from around the world come to know the saving, healing, delivering power of Jesus Christ.
From our perspective there is no greater opportunity to share this good news. Media is the most effective tool we have today. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, GOD TV is broadcasting Christian and Messianic Jewish content across the world, we are not just a TV station we also share this life saving message on the Internet, via our video on demand service and through social media platforms, this includes YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and we are working on many more. However we have not forgotten your generation, we continue to reach out through traditional media lifting up the name of Jesus through our letters, blogs, articles and emails.
The name of Jesus is being brightly shone every single second. Now that is a reason to say, ‘Praise God’!
We have been on a miraculous journey you and I. It is testament to the faithfulness and goodness of God. For it is because of HIM that we have built and maintained this powerful lighthouse that we know as GOD TV. While it is impossible to do it justice in this short letter, below are just a few of the things we have celebrated together over the last 25 years

There are so many stories from the last 25th year that we cannot wait to share with you! Check our special 25th anniversary programming this month.
Now, we must move forward. we must continue to build and expand. We want to increase the power of the light. We want to shine brighter and farther. In recognition of the past 25 years and with thanks to God we are asking you to join us once again. Together we can make a huge impact, together we can see lives transformed through the preaching of the Word. We all agree that the day is dark. People are feeling lost and without hope. Men and women everywhere are seeking truth, longing for love and are in search of salvation.
Jesus Christ is the light of the world, the way the truth and the life. Christ is the answer but how will they know this if they are not told and how can they be told if no one preaches and how can they preach if they are not sent. As Media Missionaries, we are a sending machine. You and I make it possible for preachers to share this good news all around the world. We cannot do it by ourselves. We need your support, your love, and your partnership. Together we can make a difference, together we are strong.
To celebrate the past 25 years and to celebrate the next 25 years, should the Lord tarry, we are setting a goal of raising 25 million dollars. This money goes directly into the expansion of the Gospel, bringing increase to the GOD TV lighthouse. Asia needs the Gospel like never before, Africa needs the Gospel like never before, North America, South America, the UK, Europe, Australasia and Antarctica need the Gospel like never before. The nations of the earth must hear this good news and we are compelled to share it with them.
We firmly believe that the Lord has begun a great work in GOD TV and in you and me and that according to His Word will carry it on to completion until the day of His return. (Philippians 1:6)
