About The 700 Club
The 700 Club is the daily TV programme of the Christian Broadcasting Network with a lively mix of news, life-changing stories, health tips, cooking (particularly on Wednesday’s) and updates about our humanitarian outreach projects through Operation Blessing.
In the United Kingdom, viewers can watch the daily 700 Club at 6pm, Sky channel 581 or freesat 692 (Revelation TV). Missed episodes can also be watched online using our V.O.D service. For more than half a century The 700 Club has ministered to TV audiences all over the world. ‘The fruit that remains’ is impressive. Last year the programme generated more than 3 million phone calls for prayer, including salvations, healings and life-changing help. The ministry has now documented over 500 million salvations world-wide. When the former Soviet Union collapsed in the early 1990’s, our broadcasts began on Russia’s main national TV channel and the response was a staggering 13 million letters asking for Bibles and information about the Christian faith. At the same time the program expanded into Latin America, Asia, Africa and India. The ministry produced indigenous programmes in more than 60 languages from centres in Kiev, Manila, Jakarta, Delhi, Hong Kong and Africa That beam into more than 200 countries. Ironically, the one region of the world where overtly Christian broadcasting was restricted was Europe. State-run broadcasters controlled the airwaves and determined what audiences could watch and not watch!
Because of emerging satellite technology, Europe’s regulators were overwhelmed with a flood of new channels by the late 90’s and many viewers were hungry for fresh new TV programmes that would fill Europe’s spiritual void. That’s when The 700 Club could finally been seen daily across the entire continent and into the Middle East.
At last viewers in the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe had a source of teaching and to expand their understanding and knowledge of the Bible. Testimonies explored how ordinary people could overcome addictions, diseases, financial pressures and health issues through the power of prayer and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour.
In addition to the broadcasts of The 700 Club, our ministry is a key source of international news from a Christian perspective, including a weekly roundup of events in our ‘Christian World News’ summary. Other programmes airing in Europe include our weekly series focusing on Afro-Caribbean topics, “Turning Point.” 700 Club spin-offs also share the Good News of Jesus Christ with viewers who speak French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
The Gospel is, of course, more than a declaration of God’s love. It is showing His love through practical ways. Our global humanitarian outreach, Operation Blessing, is one of the world’s top rated charities for aid in disaster situations and Orphan’s Promise was created to minister to the physical, spiritual and educational needs of abandoned children by providing loving care, training for future independence and the hope of the Gospel to some of the world’s more than 100 million orphaned children.
In all, The 700 Club has pioneered a proven work, tested by time, yet still on the cutting edge of 21st century technology to help usher in the great promise of Matthew 24: to prepare the nations of the world for the coming of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth. Our ultimate goal is to achieve a time in history when “the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.”
