TCT's goal is to reach as many as possible with the Gospel message. We know in this 21st century that many viewers have left the traditional TV viewing option for smart phones and other mobile devices. TCT can be live streamed from our web site 24 hours a day. Many of our programs are also available for viewing on demand. Along with the traditional access in many areas through over the air, satellite, and cable companies, TCT is also available on iOS, Android, Roku, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Android TV, Tizen, and Xbox One. We continue to strive to make our programming accessible anytime and anywhere around the world!

Mission statement

TCT's primary mission from its inception has always been to share the love of Jesus with a lost and dying world.

EVANGELIZE - Proclaim the gospel of Christ to a lost world

EDUCATE - Teach and edify the body of Christ

ENTERTAIN - Provide a Bible-based, wholesome alternative to secular entertainment

EDIFICATION - To build up the Body of Christ and promote unity among churches

Statement of faith

WE BELIEVE THE HOLY BIBLE is the inspired, infallible and authoritative source of Christian doctrine and precept.

WE BELIEVE THAT THERE IS ONE GOD, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY HOPE for man is to believe on Jesus Christ, the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of mankind and Who rose from the dead so that by receiving Him as Savior and Lord, man is redeemed by His Blood.

WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST in person will return to earth in power and glory.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT dwells in those who have received Christ for the purpose of enabling them to live righteous and godly lives.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE CHURCH is the Body of Christ and is composed of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually regenerated by the indwelling Holy Spirit. The mission of the Church is worldwide evangelization on the one hand and the nurture and discipline of Christians on the other hand.

1977 - Seeing a need and feeling God's call, founders Garth and Tina Coonce left the security of the corporate business world and stepped out in obedience to the Holy Spirit. Much like patriarch, Abraham many centuries before, they left the comfort of what they knew and entered into what was to them an unfamiliar land - broadcast television.
What began as one Christian station in the Cincinnati area has exploded into a world-wide network of broadcast stations helping to bring the Gospel message to the world twenty-four hours a day - seven days a week - 365 days a year!
Using cutting edge technology to provide the best in faith and family television relevant to today's generation, TCT has become a powerful voice for the Gospel.
