TBN began with a dream. A vision. To build a Christian television network that spans the whole world !
From a humble beginning in 1973, the dream grew.

And grew. And grew. More and more people caught the vision of TBN's founders; Paul and Jan Crouch.

TBN is now the world's largest Christian television network. Across America and around the world TBN is carried by TV stations and cable systems to millions of homes. As a matter of fact, TBN is featured on over 5,000 television stations, over 70 satellites, the Internet and thousands of cable systems around the world. And the number continues to grow!

Programs are translated into numerous foreign languages at TBN's state-of-the-art facilities at the International Production Center in Irving, Texas.

Like old friends, prominent people drop in frequently to chat on "Praise the Lord" -- TBN's flagship production. From all walks of life, they come to share on TV their faith in God. Leading pastors from America's largest churches. Astronauts. Champion athletes. War heroes. Movie stars. Country music entertainers. And it's televised "live" from TBN production facilities throughout the US.

TBN produces more original Christian programs than any other religious network. Gospel music concerts from Nashville. "Live" coverage of major Christian events. Informative talk shows with exciting guests.

Health and nutrition programs with Christian family doctors. Fitness programs.

Children's shows with positive moral values. Hot contemporary Christian music videos. Marriage enrichment series. Holiday specials! Inspiring Christian dramas and movies. Uplifting worship services from America's largest churches. And more!
TBN is a recognized leader in the production of major Christian movies. TBN's cinematic achievements include: "The Revolutionary" and "The Revolutionary II," based on the life of Jesus; "The Emissary," a film on the life of the apostle Paul; "The Omega Code"; "Carman: The Champion"; "Megiddo"; and "Time Changer." Currently under production is TBN's newest end time thriller, "Six: The Mark Unleashed," starring Stephen Baldwin and David White, scheduled to premiere on the TBN network in 2004.
Trinity Music City, USA is Nashville's newest tourist attraction. Thousands of visitors come every week! The former estate of country music legend Conway Twitty, the complex includes the 2000-seat Trinity Music City Church Auditorium. Crowds are "packing out the house" to attend TBN-produced concerts, dramas, seminars and special events
TBN is on the cutting edge of technology with our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality Theaters. TBN operates these Virtual Reality Theaters at Trinity Music City in Nashville, International Production Center in Dallas, and at the TBN Headquarters at Trinity Christian City International in Costa Mesa, California. Two more theaters are planned for Hawaii and Jerusalem. The 50-seat theaters present visitors with an incredible experience combining high definition digital video technology and an exclusive 48-channel digital audio system. The theaters showcase four original productions from TBN Films: "The Revolutionary", parts I and II, portraying the life and miracles of Jesus Christ, "The Emissary", depicting miraculous events from the book of Acts and the life of Paul, and "The Omega Code".

Three Reasons Why Viewers Choose TBN:

Faith in God.
Love of family.
Patriotic pride.

These are the values Americans consider most precious. Values that have been attacked and ridiculed by our pop culture and news and entertainment media. Yet, the American people still cherish our nation's core values. In fact, there is a major religious awakening sweeping through American society as we enter the 21st century.

That's why millions of viewers love and support TBN. Because we share their values. TBN proudly promotes traditional values. In a world that seems hostile to family values, TBN is a safe, friendly place.

TBN is solidly committed to our viewers. And those viewers are deeply loyal to TBN. Since 1973, we've always been TBN. No name or format changes. Other religious networks have come and gone, yet TBN has remained the same. A Christian network. All day. Every day. No advertisements, paid infomercials or off-net reruns. Why? Because we take our religious responsibility seriously. Lots of people count on us. TBN. Where hearts are touched and lives are changed.

Viewers depend on TBN. Especially when facing life's difficulties. They'll always find positive Christian programming. Programs that offer hope, encouragement, and friendly smiles. We take our responsibility seriously. People depend on TBN. Lives are changed. Hearts are touched.

When our viewers need a friend, they have TBN.
