Amazing Facts began in 1965 with a brilliant radio idea to attract listeners from all walks of life. Joe Crews, the ministry’s first speaker, opened each radio broadcast with an amazing fact and then followed with a related biblical message that everyone could understand. At the end of each program, he offered a free Bible lesson to encourage listeners to study God’s Word for themselves.
Step by step, Amazing Facts expanded its outreach by publishing dozens of Christ-centered books and creating a free mail-based Bible school accessible to any one. Not long after, the ministry also began sending trained young men to preach the gospel around the country, winning souls in a winsome way.
Then in the mid-1980s, Amazing Facts expanded its increasingly popular media outreach to television. The clear, Bible-based programs proved to be powerful, life-changing messages for thousands of viewers around the world.
In 1994, Doug Batchelor, an energetic soul-winning evangelist and author, took the reins of the ministry. Pastor Doug is an innovative speaker with an unusual ability to communicate. Under his leadership, the ministry has grown exponentially — reaching more people in more ways than ever before. (WatchPastor Doug’s Testimony)
For instance, Amazing Facts now broadcasts multiple television programs and a live call-in radio program, Bible Answers Live, on hundreds of media outlets around the world. Moreover, Pastor Doug has presented dynamic, soul-winning seminars in New York, Africa, India, the Philippines, South Korea, and South America, resulting in thousands upon thousands of baptisms and new lives in Christ.
In every area of outreach — whether radio or TV, publications, prophecy seminars, training programs, Bible schools, or the internet — Amazing Facts is giving people the biblical answers they need to make an informed and heartfelt decision for Christ, and equipping them to lead others to Him.
