The Christian Broadcasting Network

CBN was founded by televangelist Pat Robertson in 1961 using a religious variety program format that has been successfully used in religious broadcasting ever since. One of the mainstays of the network is The 700 Club, the longest-running program in the variety format.

The network's journalistic branch, CBN News, provides news updates to The 700 Club and produces religious news programs such as CBN NewsWatch and Christian World News, and also airs a special hour of prime-time election coverage hosted by Robertson during presidential and mid-term elections in the United States, seen on ABC Family. The half-hour talk-show Living the Life, hosted by 700 Club co-host Terry Meeuwsen, is also seen on ABC Family. CBN also operates online channels on its website, such as the CBN News Channel.

CBN manages Operation Blessing, an international relief and missionary effort, and has international programming, producing local programs including Solusi in Indonesia and From Heart to Heart in Thailand; CBN India produces five weekly series. There are versions of the The 700 Club aimed at Latin American (Club 700 Hoy) and British audiences (The 700 Club With Paul and Fiona). CBN has broadcast programs in over 70 languages.

On April 29, 1977, CBN launched a cable network, CBN Satellite Service. It was later revamped with a mix of both religious and secular programming, and renamed CBN Cable Network. CBN Cable Network eventually became The Family Channel, which was later sold to Fox and known as the Fox Family Channel. Fox later sold it to Disney, which renamed it ABC Family.

CBN is now a production company for The 700 Club, and the other syndicated shows CBN NewsWatch, Christian World News, Living the Life, and One Cubed. CBN and Regent University jointly produced the film First Landing. The current news director is Rob Allman.

The Christian Broadcasting network does not preach the gospel of Christ and through its work they deceive all of its followers. They do not know what spirit they serve (Luke 9:55) as they are spiritually blind (Matthew 15:14; John 3:19; 9:39; 8:43,44).

Their main objective, like all the other worldly ministries, is to obtain your name and get you to join their organization (700 Club). In fact they have seven tiers of membership. For $240/yr you become an official member of the 700 Club and depending how much you contribute, you go from the 700 Club to the Gold Club. The next level is the 1000 Club for $1000/yr and then the 2000 Club. For $5000/yr you join the Founders Club and for a donation of $10,000/yr you become a member of the exclusive Chairman's Circle.

The words in Revelation 12: 9 of the Bible teach us how this whole world has been deceived. For a better understanding how and by whom this world has been deceived we invite you to read all of the pages of this website and especially the articles False Apostles and False Christs and You Need Not That Any Man Teach You.

The message communicated to this world through the Christian Broadcasting Network will not be able to save you as they preach and communicate an image of a false God and a false Christ. They are false apostles, deceitful workers, who have transformed themselves into the apostles of Christ (2 Cor. 11:13-15).

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15; Luke 11:39). Woe unto you scribes and Pharisees (religious community), hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte (convert), and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves (Matthew 23:15).

How mankind can be reunited with the true and living God has been explained in detail throughout the pages and in the many articles of this website.

Our Ministry preaches the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins (Mark 1:4) as it was preached by John the Baptist, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the apostles and is the only message that is able to bring salvation to this world and save mankind. We invite you to read the article Repent listed on this website as it is not what you have been conditioned to believe.

The Gospel we preach is not after the wisdom of man, for we neither received it of man, neither were we taught it, but by revelation of Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 2:4-16; Galatians 1:11,12).
