Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
We love Australia and we're passionate about making sure that every person living in this country originally named Terra Austrialis del Spiritu Santo, Great Southland of the Holy Spirit, has the opportunity to hear to Good News of the Gospel. Christian Media for Every Australian is not just the goal of UCB Australia but an integral part of our DNA.Whether you live in a capital city or it is an hour's helicopter ride to the nearest supermarket we want you to be able to access great Christian music, teaching and resources from Vision Radio Network.Romans 10 12-13 says "...the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him, for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."Hardly a week goes by without us getting at least one new Vision station on air somewhere in our 'sunburnt' country. That's because we're committed to getting the Gospel message into every community in Australia.We're equally passionate about seeing people get closer to God through developing a discipline of daily Bible reading. Our devotionals, The Word for Today, and its youth counterpart, word4U2day, are available as a free gift to Australians in order to encourage this daily walk with Jesus. Through UCB Direct everyone in Australia has access to great teaching resources and through PrayForMe anyone anywhere in can have someone pray for and with them.
