Christian World News is a half-hour weekly news program devoted to the work of the Holy Spirit around the globe. Produced by CBN News, this award-winning newscast airs at various times in the United States and around the world.

Drawing on a vast network of news sources, Christian World News reports exclusively on the work of the church in such places as Eastern Europe, Central Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East. Stories focus on international missions and revival and provide in-depth coverage exposing the persecution of Christians worldwide.

The program also examines the American church, focusing on major evangelism efforts, prayer movements, defense of religious rights, and much more.

The goal of Christian World News is stated in the program's theme verse, Psalm 96:3, which commands Christians to "declare God's glory among the nations, His wonders among all peoples." The show's purpose is to serve as a call to prayer for Christians as they see the needs of God's people around the world.
