mission of CBN and its affiliated organizations is to prepare the United States
of America and the nations of the world for the coming of Jesus Christ and
the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth. Our ultimate goal is to achieve
a time in history when "the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth
as the waters cover the sea."
In achieving our mission our chief method is the strategic use of all forms
of mass communication and the conduct of education that will train the young
and old to understand how the principles of the Kingdom of God relate to
those spheres of human endeavor that play a dominant role in our world.
In achieving our mission nothing should be done that does not glorify God
and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Three words should characterize the execution of our mission. First, we
will be innovative. Our task is not to duplicate or copy other men’s
labors. Second, we will be excellent. Our work must either be of lasting
value and highest quality, or it should not be done at all. Third, we will
demonstrate integrity. In our work, our public relations, our internal and
external communications, there will be an abiding commitment to truth. Integrity
must characterize all of our dealings with others.
In staffing for our mission we must insist on securing the best possible
men and women for each task, and we will make every effort to see that people
and tasks are matched appropriately. Our policy will be to secure a small
staff of outstanding people and to compensate them well for their labors.
Our staff should be "filled with the Holy Spirit and wisdom." God’s
work must be done by God’s people, equipped and chosen.
Implicit in the fulfillment of our mission is the demonstration of all of
the principles of the Kingdom of God, especially that of reciprocity. Therefore,
we continually endeavor to give generous assistance to the relief of human
need and suffering throughout the world, as well as donations to other organizations
that share our basic objectives.
We believe that God’s work, done according to the principles of His
Kingdom, will prosper financially. We cannot serve God and money, so service
to God and His call always takes precedence over conflicting considerations
of money. Nevertheless, we recognize that only those activities which are
economically viable can continue in our present society, so planning must
take into account economic viability. We also categorically state that the
payment of accounts when due is a key ingredient of integrity. We seek to
finance our activities by all lawful and morally correct means, including
but not limited to contributions, sales, and investment income. In planning
we will endeavor to project adequate income for current activities, plus
generous surpluses from which we can build and expand.
In the fulfillment of our mission, as to calling and message, our Biblical
role model is John the Baptist. As to wisdom, it is Solomon. As to ministry
to Israel, it is the prophet Ezekiel. In all that we are, do, and say, it
is Jesus Christ.
A caring friend will be there to pray with you in your time of need.
