“The Freedom Channel”
“Voice for the voiceless to reach the un-reached”
Al Horreya TV derive its roots from the rich soil of our glorious Coptic Church and its deep history that have kept the true orthodox faith that was handed down to the saints and will remain for all generations salt for the earth and light of the world.
Al Horreya TV was established to be a spiritual stream that connects the old and the new and communicate the Biblical truth contained in the church history with its monumental heritage of its fathers writings with the daily needs and the ever-changing challenges of the twenty first century, as the Lord Jesus himself said "and you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:32)
Al-Horreya TV established to communicate the Gospel of the Kingdom of God to the Arabic speaking population around the globe with focus on reaching the unreached and being a voice for the voiceless in a culturally sensitive way.
The guiding principles of our mission are based on the words of the prophet Isaiah that were uttered by the Lord Jesus Himself in Luke 4
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)
We believe that Jesus himself is the truth and the only way to set the captives free into the abundant life. As his instrument and through the media, Al-Horreya TV will proclaim the Good news of grace and the Lord’s favor especially to the disadvantaged and oppressed, bringing the manifestation of the Kingdom of God into the midst of the Arabic speaking communities across the world.
Guiding principles in production and programming:
For long, the Arabic Christian media geared towards providing a convenient medium for traditional spiritual experience aimed at Christians and churchgoers from all denominational backgrounds. Although it was necessary at the beginning to build that base of viewership, but time has come in God's economy for the Arabic Christian media to become relevant to non-Christians and non-church goers, in a culturally sensitive and non-threatening way in order to provide real solutions to the world's everyday needs only found in Christ.
The Christian media so far is successful in making Sunday's activities available all week long, but wasn't very successful in bringing Jesus into Monday through Saturday human experience, and that is what Al-Horreya TV is called to do.
Throughout the Bible, Jesus was God and Man at the same time, He had his views on Taxes, politics, educational and economic concerns of His days on earth, as He is the "Word became flesh". He used parables and common language that was relevant to his audience, and far simpler than the religious holy language of the synagogues.
By far, Jesus was the perfect communicator to the “sinners and tax collectors” who hung around Him in masses, and delivered practical solutions, sometimes natural and sometimes supernatural, while the religious leaders of His days were busy preparing sermons for the next Sabbath.
Al-Horreya TV is longing to follow Christ's footsteps and by the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, this media body wants to deliver His message using the same approach, to be His mouthpiece to every Arabic speaking person around the world.
The channel will be a voice for the voiceless and the disenfranchised sectors of the Arabic communities. Jesus mission was to preach good news to the poor.
The choice of program varieties either produced or acquired should cover a broad spectrum of viewers’ daily needs and interests, bringing Jesus into the marketplace of ideas, emphasizing the Kingdom's views on economic, educational, medical, human rights and political values that are of interest to the Middle Eastern culture and relevant to the current events, especially with the rapidly changing political and economic landscape, as the Middle East is becoming more and more the focus of end time Divine activities .
