  • 40 Years in India

    Discipleship Essentials, Media Players, Education
    God is moving in India. This year, TWR India celebrates 40 years of God’s faithfulness in reaching India with the gospel. In 1977, TWR India began to broadcast the hope of the gospel in five languages on the radio. Since then, God has moved in some significant ways. Today, it has celebrated production in its 100th language. Not only that, but broadcasting has also expanded to include other forms of media. Television shows, audio players, cell phone projects and web initiatives supplement the ongoing radio broadcasts.
  • In many parts of the world, both new and seasoned believers have little access to solid biblical teaching or resources. People may have heard about the hope and salvation offered through a relationship with Jesus Christ and may have even accepted him as Lord and Saviour, but then what?
  • It's often been said that the Church in many parts of the world is a mile wide and an inch deep; sadly, the correlation between church attendance and transformed lives is shockingly low.
