Our Impact

The Iranian Christian church is growing exponentially and we are blessed to be part of that growth. By the grace of God, we have become the largest Persian-speaking church in Los Angeles County and our church-based TV program holds the highest rating in the Persian Christian Satellite TV network run by larger and well-established Christian TV stations

The Word of God is the Key

As God says in Isaiah 55:11: "So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please." Hebrews 4:12 also says that ". . . the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow. . ." These are the types of phenomena we are experiencing in our church and through our TV program as people change their lives and turn to Christianity as a result of our preaching the Word of God to them and introducing them to the Gospel. The conversion of a Muslim to Christianity is not an "overnight event," it is instead a process. What we do is to plant the seed and then let the Holy Spirit do the rest of the work

Miracles and Life-Changing Transformations

It is amazing to see the life-changing transformations taking place in our church and through our TV programs. We have seen sickness healed, deliverance from drug addiction, lives restored after a past filled with abuse, and people experiencing revelatory dreams and visions. These testimonies represent a living affirmation of the Gospel, as family, friends, and even entire communities find that they cannot deny the transformations brought about by Christ, What we are seeing very clearly is that people are tiring of Islam and are seeking both the truth and the true God. When they hear the words and teachings of the Gospel, it comes to them as though it were a fresh breeze of air, and those who are touched by the Gospel instantly recognize that the Bible is the true word of God and represents the truth they have been seeking. The life-changing experiences do not go unnoticed. If a former Muslim comes to Christ, then he or she is able to truly appreciate what Jesus meant when he said that we must carry our crosses and follow Him. Some of the new converts' family members denounce them. New converts also find that they cannot return to Iran since their lives will now be in danger due to their conversion. Although they cannot return to Iran, they are able to serve as spiritual ambassadors and introduce Christianity to their families. There are many cases in which dozens of people from an entire family have turned to Christ simply because one of their family members turned to Christ first and then start preaching the Gospel to them
Through satellite TV, our programs are reaching the private living rooms of families that otherwise may never have heard the Gospel

Although satellite dishes are banned in Iran, it is estimated that 30 million people have access to satellite TV. Both believers and non-believers watch Christian TV. The evidence of response rates to Christian programming indicates that significantly large numbers of viewers, (likely more than one million), watch Christian TV programs

There are many powerful testimonies offered by people who have come to know the Lord through satellite TV. The positive response to the programs is highly significant. Examples of this are shown in some of the clips that can be found under the “testimonies tab”. For those people who have given their lives to Christ in many Islamic countries, Christian TV is often the only source of Bible teaching and their sole connection to the church. These people watch satellite TV Christian programs faithfully in order to learn more about the Gospel and to grow spiritually

We also produce and air educational TV programs and teleconferences that teach viewers how to start and grow home-based churches and teach basic Christian doctrine. In addition to our TV program on the Persian Christian TV stations, we have also intentionally chosen to have our programs air on the secular Iranian satellite TV stations in order to reach those people who would not normally watch the Christian TV stations. This is our way of reaching people who would not actively reach out to Christianity on their own and who represent the majority of the people in Iran. The response to this programming has been very encouraging based upon the number of phone calls we receive and the statistics we've obtained.

When people convert to Christianity through our TV programs in Iran, we provide their names to the Iranian underground Christian organizations and churches. These groups have well-trained and dedicated members who connect with and visit the new converts in order to help them with the growth of their faith and to provide any support they might need.
