About Missionary Broadcasting
Radio is a powerful instrument to evangelize, educate, inform, inspire and connect. It is an electronic John, the Baptist— preparing the way for a personal witness. Christian radio can reinforce the listener’s positive moral values and move him or her to explore Biblical ideals, become followers of Jesus and seek out the fellowship of like-minded Christians in a church in their community. Radio is a perfect tool to both evangelize and disciple. For those who want to investigate the claims of Christianity, radio can inform in a non-threatening environment.
For listeners who face recrimination from family or friends for personally inquiring about the Gospel, Christian radio—because of its personal nature– can overcome barriers of prejudice. Many listen to their transistor radios or cell phones privately on their headsets. For those looking for encouragement, hope and meaning in life, Evangelical radio educates and inspires.
Missionary Broadcasting, Inc. aids national Christians who want to evangelize and disciple via radio in a number of ways: 1) by acquainting them with requirements for acquiring broadcast licenses in their countries, 2) by advising them on the equipment needed to launch their own radio station, 3) by offering sound advice about effective Christian broadcast management; 4) by recommending capable and reputable broadcast engineers in their countries; and 5) by recommending sources of quality Evangelical Christian radio programming in Spanish by the very best international producers. Our director has written an easy-to-understand manual in Spanish on how to operate an effective Christian radio station.
The impact of our affiliated radio stations, operated by local believers, is overwhelming as listeners respond with testimonies of how they have come to know Jesus as their personal Savior or how their lives have been touched in one way or another by the station’s programming.
Our 55 affiliated radio stations are mainly located in small to medium-sized towns in rural areas where tuning in to the radio is an everyday thing either at work or at home. Our affiliates are in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador. Several of our affiliated stations in Guatemala minister to indigenous people groups—the K’ekchi’, the Quiché, the Pocomchí and the Tzutujil. Two of our affiliated stations in Honduras minister to the Mískito. All adhere to the doctrinal statement known as the Baptist Faith and Message.
Radio broadcasting is still a very relevant local medium of communication. Although we now have Internet radio, local broadcast radio remains strong and impactful simply because it is local. Over 67% of the world does not have Internet access, so there are 4.6 billion people who still need access to local radio to hear the Word of God.
