Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) is an international radio network that airs Christian programs in 149 languages. Broadcasts are aired from shortwave, mediumwave (AM), and FM transmitters located throughout the world.
The organization also works to meet the physical needs of its listeners by providing scholarships, holding marriage seminars, and distributing items such as seedlings (helping a family grow their own food) and bicycles (transportation for students or pastorss).
Although many listeners live in very remote locations, FEBC receives more than 850,000 listener responses in the form of visits to the station, letters, text messages, phone calls and emails.
FEBC's Mission is to develop radio programming and deliver it to listeners in such a way that they move toward Jesus Christ and into His Kingdom, that they know Him as Saviour, Lord, and King, follow His teaching, and live in obedience to Him as His servants, and as members of a local body of believers.
John Broger and Bob Bowman were among those who felt called by God to set up a radio ministry in Asia even before the war. They envisioned a ministry that would bring the Gospel to millions of people in Asia. One country especially was in their hearts: China.
Incorporated in 1945, FEBC's very first broadcast was aired from a station in Shanghai. But this was short-lived. By early 1948 all mission work in China was winding down and an alternative site was sought.
The Philippines at that time was newly independent from the USA and was more than willing for FEBC to establish its operations there. The first broadcast went on air in Manila on June 4, 1948 over local station KZAS (now known as DZAS).
International broadcasts to China started the following year and have since expanded to cover most of Southeast Asia, as well as Russia. FEBC’s sister company, Feba Radio, broadcast programs in Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
FEBC currently operates a total of 41 AM and FM stations worldwide and also broadcast international programs in 149 languages via short wave radio from two major transmitter sites - several locations in the Philippines and one in Saipan ( ).
Statement of Faith
 FEBC is an extradenominational radio ministry enterprise for the sole purpose of taking the Good News to the world by radio. In so doing, it seeks to cooperate with and support existing missionary efforts and the ministry of the greater body of Christ worldwide.
FEBC believes that Gospel radio ministry should present a consistent message for the edification of others. Cooperation in such an enterprise as this may be achieved and maintained only by loyalty to a common and positive agreement in the broadcast message. In Christ we have fellowship with Evangelical denominations and missionary groups, and base our cooperation upon the following great truths of the Bible.
