Who We Are


Our purpose is to communicate the fundamental doctrines of Christianity through the teaching and preaching of God's Word. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His substitutionary death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension into Heaven to intercede for us, His imminent return to take His bride, the Church; and salvation by grace through faith.


We began broadcasting on Thanksgiving Day, 1971. The Lord used Jack and Frankie Tidwell to begin the work, and it continues under the direction of their son, Bill. This station was His plan from the beginning and has been raised up in His time for the strengthening of the saints and for proclaiming the Good News that...Jesus Saves
