SAT-7 affirms biblical doctrine and is not affiliated with any denomination.

In its broadcasts, SAT-7 emphasizes the realities and challenges Christians in the Middle East and North Africa share in common. The ministry does not denigrate or attack any other religion but presents the claims of Christ and Christianity, allowing individuals to make their own comparisons and spiritual decisions. 

SAT-7 cites two documents to express the ministry’s foundational biblical understanding:  

First, the Nicene Creed, one of the oldest and most widely recognized professions of Christian faith, considered perhaps the best description and definition of Christianity ever written.

The second, the Lausanne Covenant, an influential modern statement of Christian faith, including a reaffirmation of the Nicene Creed and an elaboration of fifteen biblical teachings.

SAT-7 shares the Word of God’s presentation of truth, love, hope, and history pointing to the Middle East region as the birthplace of Christianity, and witnesses to the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ.

SAT-7 is non-partisan and nonpolitical. 

SAT-7 is not a political organization, does not promote any political policy, party, figure, or ideology, and refrains from political associations.

The ministry focuses upon sharing the Gospel and Christian teaching with all people, including children, in the Middle East and North Africa.

Yet, SAT-7 recognizes that the Word of God speaks to social issues, so the ministry applies a Christian worldview and biblical values to issues like peace, religious freedom, and biblical human rights for women, children and all individuals. SAT-7 rejects religious conflict and promotes justice, education, social and economic development. 

Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is the Light of the world that transcends all borders, tribes, religions, and ideologies. 

This, not politics, is SAT-7’s message of reconciliation and hope.

SAT-7 employs satellite television and social media to broadcast hope in Arabic, Farsi, and Turkish in the Middle East and North Africa. SAT-7 affirms a “culturally sensitive” approach to ministry.

Cultural sensitivity means SAT-7 shares Christian teaching with viewers from diverse cultural, ethnic, political, and religious backgrounds, in a manner that demonstrates understanding, respect, and love. 

SAT-7 does not broadcast from other regions using non-Middle Eastern faces or languages. It is based among the people it is serving. SAT-7 produces programming in the Middle East by Middle Easterners for Middle Easterners. 

Culturally sensitive ministry broadcasts in a way that enables the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa to hear, understand, and grasp the essentials of the Christian faith for themselves.

SAT-7 is culturally sensitive, building relational bridges, speaking the truth in love.

SAT-7, the largest Christian satellite broadcasting network in the Middle East and North Africa, often speaks of its “holistic” ministry.

Holistic means we believe our Christian faith requires us to actively care for the whole person: spiritual, emotional, physical, intellectual, social. 

Yes, SAT-7 regularly shares the Gospel, the Good News of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

In addition, SAT-7 works to bless people in their everyday circumstances.

Programs address building marriages, nurturing children, adoption, women’s issues, substance abuse, freedom of religion and human rights, employment training. Other programs address children and youth issues like trauma healing, bullying, dating.

With some 15 million children out of school in the Middle East due to conflict or crisis, SAT-7 ACADEMY produces educational programs offering instruction in English, Arabic, Mathematics, and the Sciences.

Social concern is a means of loving our neighbors and demonstrating the Gospel.

SAT-7’s ministry is holistic, teaching the “whole counsel of God” for the whole person.

Brief audio on the Beirut Blast and SAT-7's initial response. SAT-7 Lebanon studios are just outside the blast radius so spared all but minimal damage. Now broadcasting to grieve together, lament, serve, and provide solace in spiritual truth.

Every day, some terrible discouraging development assaults our senses.  It can be overwhelming.

It helps us get a clue on what people in the Middle East and North Africa have faced for decades. Layered crises, one blending with another.

This brings to mind my Mother’s favorite Bible verse:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Phil. 4:6-7).

Living in peace in the midst of turmoil is not sticking our ostrich head in the sand, it’s not whistling past the graveyard, nor is it being a clueless Pollyanna.

SAT-7 blesses Middle Eastern viewers with the peace and hope of the God of the Bible.

Living in peace during crises is a blessing of God.
