Romans 10:17-18

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.

WELCOME

RadioMinistry.org is operated by the School of the Bible Department of   Odessa Community Church. This church of Christ actually came about from RadioMinistry.org, which existed first, appearing online and over national shortwave radio before, later, appearing on international AM radio.

It is the mission of RadioMinistry.org to reignite waning belief in the very existence of God, and the truth of His Word, His Plan for us, and the reality of Salvation by Jesus Christ. We strive to help advance the gospel via exclusive audio bible content, and to generally provide quality, worthwhile Christian listening 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 356 days a year to whomever possible, wherever possible, however possible.

Our widespread, overseas broadcast AM radio “border blast” shows are aimed into countries which include some territories where oppressed and even truly persecuted listeners live and carefully send listener reports. These shows contain exclusive audio bible recordings and grassroots sermons (such as our “Bible on the Beach” shows airing throughout the African continent on Voice of Hope’s AM radio transmitters since December 2018). These shows differs from some of our informal, local programming where we allow ourselves more liberties including impromptu commentary, experimental content, member-submitted entertainment, and content of interest only to Americans.

Our own, independent  Listen  area hosted here, online, doesn’t depend on any other website or social media service and cannot be censored or generally removed or buried by third parties, and should be among the last to disappear during anti-Christian times ahead foretold by bible prophecy. Weekly, particularly in the Sermons area, we release more audio bible readings, sermons, and sincere music praising God in Jesus’ name — all to fuel the fire of revival!

In addition to the many African countries Odessa Community Church’s “Bible on the Beach” is heard via live AM radio we will be appearing, once again, over shortwave frequencies as well. Keep your eyes peeled here or email us for a schedule of shows you can tune in to here in the US! Shortwave is a great, family-friendly hobby of wholesome, old-time scientific discovery and is alive today, particularly in the Christian community, technical radio hobbyists, and those engaged in disaster preparedness utilizing long-range receivers. To find out more about shortwave Christian listening, email:  pastor@radioministry.org

Praise God in the name of our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ

Odessa Community Church opens doors soon, locally, offering brick-and-mortar church services in a neighborhood primed, ready, and calling for one, in a neighborhood building otherwise closed for some time now by the Parks & Recreation Service (except a weekly AA meeting), which was formerly open daily as the Odessa Community Center until it closed due to lack of interest and support. Odessa Community Church will not interfere with the AA meeting and welcomes attendees to remain for prayer, bible study, sermons, fellowship, and coffee.
