Haere mai, Welcome!
For most of my life, I genuinely believed that I was a born-again Christian. I had asked Jesus into my heart when I was 13, and was baptised in water when I was 16. I attended church and tried to live right according to what the church leaders taught.
The thing is, nothing really changed. I was still stuck in the spiral of sin with seemingly no way out - no matter how hard I tried. I had a pious outward expression of Jesus, but no actual evidence of His Spirit living resident in me.
Thankfully, that all changed about 4 years ago - 35 years after I made that first confession of faith.
I had a revelation about two things which set me free from the religious course I had been following, to being transformed by the true born-again nature that Christ actually died for us all to have.
I discovered what repentance actually means, and the real purpose behind being baptised in water - the transaction that takes place from being a slave to sin, to a child of the Living God. (see Romans 6)
The ONE is an expression of this revelation, borne from a life-long desire to share the gospel of Christ and His kingdom, via radio.
There is no better life, than the life that's truly lived for Christ!
No ads. No DJs. Just the Gospel - everyday!
"[For my hope is] that their hearts may be encouraged as they are knit together in [unselfish] love, so that they may have all the riches that come from the full assurance of understanding [the joy of salvation], resulting in a true [and more intimate] knowledge of the mystery of God, that is, Christ." Colossians 2:2 (AMP)
We're stoked you've stumbled upon us! Now you're here, why not hang around a bit?
We're privileged to have you onboard as we present the gospel message to you in it's fullness, according to God's Holy Word - the Bible. We do it everyday, right here on your Jesus Radio, The ONE. What can we say. We care.
You've probably noticed... We don't do ads and we don't have DJs. Why? It's by design, 'cos we reckon they just get in the way of the gospel message. Without the often intrusive ads and unnecessary DJ banter, we fit in more of what you actually came here for. That's a huge win!
If there's a song you think we ought to be playing, just let us know, and we'll consider adding it to the relevant playlist.
It's the music we love to play, from an ever-growing collection, that's been carefully picked for it's message - not it's entertainment value. You can be sure you'll be encouraged and challenged to live every moment of your life for Jesus. It may not be the hippest music out there, but we love it and we're sure you will too. Eventually.
Our weekday playlist is loosely aimed at those aged between 24-54 (but what's age, right?), with tunes ranging from Adult Contemporary though to Worship. There's a sprinkling of other tunes throughout the day too, including Indie, Country, Hip-Hop, and Reggae. We call it Weekdays, on The ONE.
Weekdays, on The ONE, Mon-Thu: 6am-9pm & Fri: 6am-midnight.
If church music (praise & worship) is your thing, you'll be thrilled to hear that every weekend, and weeknight (except Friday) we bring you only the best praise, worship & reflective music, with some short-form teaching. We call it Living Reflections. Here you'll find a bit of the old, a bit of the new and a bit of the old made new - you know, from hymns through to today's happy-clappers. Living Reflections is loosely aimed at those aged between 29-65.
Living Reflections, Mon-Thur: 9pm-6am & Sat: Midnight-Mon 6am.
Aside of music, we have some awesome short teaching throughout the day, to help challenge and motivate us not only to get to know Jesus, but also live more like Him. Living as He and the early believers did, through the power of the Holy Spirit. These play around 25 mins and 40 mins past the hour Mon-Fri, and on the half hour during weekends.
Every weekend, listen out for insightful, biblical teaching from Carter Conlon and Kiwi Andrew Strom, with legacy teaching from David Wilkerson and Derek Prince. BTW, we collate Derek's daily spots into one programme, just incase you missed it over the preceeding week. Who else does that?
Derek Prince also airs throughout the week, five times a day, along with short bites throughout the your weekday from Carter Conlon.
