The foundation stones of ACCTV are VISION and FAITH. The vision for ACCTV is to see the Good News message of Christ broadcast through the Australian media platforms.
The journey of faith began in 1987 when a vision was birthed to see a Christian based television channel established in Australia. What began as an impossible dream became a reality on Easter Sunday 1999, when ACCTV commenced a 24-hour broadcast on Optus Television.
From humble beginnings ACCTV has grown steadily and is now available on most subscription television services in Australia.
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Martin Luther King Jr.
Faith is also like a muscle that requires stress and pressure to make it strong. This analogy relates to the development of ACCTV. By God’s Grace and providence we will continue to build on the foundation that has been laid and establish a Christian media platform that is a World leader in the area of faith- based broadcasting.
In a world where there is a desperate need for hope and encouragement, ACCTV is intentional in its efforts to provide a platform where people are
encouraged, enriched and inspired with a sense of Hope.
Hope is more than just a matter of turning on the TV, it’s connecting with the message of hope and discovering a life of meaning and purpose, based on the “Hope of the World” – the person of Jesus.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
There is a distinct link between faith and hope, and in faith we hold onto the hope and believe that one day every home in Australia will have access to ACCTV.
“Hope never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
“Love always protects, love always hopes, love always trusts, love always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:7
Love is our motivation. It’s at the core of everything we do. Our love for God compels us to work with integrity and excellence. The outworking of this love is to see ACCTV become the very best it can possibly be. We are passionate about sourcing the best programs to inspire, encourage and offer hope to our viewers.
#WELOVEGOODTV has become our standard. It’s what we stand for and what we aspire to and we believe the best way to do that is through the power of story. We are intentional in broadcasting life-changing stories, that inspire, encourage, build-up and declare the Love of God to all.
The greatest story of all, is a Love story, it’s all about Jesus.
“For God so loved the world He gave his only Son that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life” John 3:16
The Bible is the inspired and authoritative word of God.
There is one God the Creator, eternally existing in three persons – God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ – He is the Son of God, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to heaven to be seated at the right hand of the Father.
In the second coming of Christ.
In the person and works of the Holy Spirit .
In the spiritually lost condition of people and the essential need for the repentance from sin and a ‘new birth’ by faith in Jesus Christ.
In the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism.
In the resurrection of all believers to everlasting life.
To redeem the media, influence culture and be a safe entertainment platform for families.
Of these three pillars, our central purpose is to influence culture with the good news of Jesus. ACCTV is an evangelistic mission seeking to advance the cause of Christ. We affirm the values defined within the Lausanne Covenant.
ACCTV believes in the power of prayer. It is an essential part of our relationship with our Father. We welcome those who would like to pray for our ministry. An established intercessory prayer covering has been and will continue to be a vital element of ACCTV’s mission.
ACCTV is committed to facilitating the ministry of the local church and believes that fellowship with other Christians is essential to the spiritual growth of every believer.
We believe that the Body of Christ should work together in unity of faith and purpose. God anoints/appoints each member of the body for different purposes. Therefore, we seek to build and foster relationships with other Christians, whether they be individuals, groups, ministries or other organisations.
ACCTV is a member of Christian Media & Arts Australia (CMAA).
