About CMB

CMB brings Christian media from around the world together for the purpose of reaching listeners with the Gospel message by developing and producing relevant programming that encourages listener interest in and involvement with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We do this by idea sharing and educating through the CMB website, monthly member webinars, and regional events. These opportunities provide professional development in the areas of: broadcast leadership, programming, fundraising, business development, promotions, marketing, social media and air talent.

We value professionalism within our industries and our organization, and we value activities that improve the quality of life, further the spiritual growth of listeners, and bring people into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.

Our goals are to provide ideas which will help the business of Christian media to thrive, to improve competence through education, and to sustain the Christian radio format as an effective tool for communicating the Gospel with the intent of leading as many people as possible to spiritual growth and salvation.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

As adopted by the Board of Directors on April 17, 2012

We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
 
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
 
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, repentance of sin and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and is administered solely by the grace of God through our faith in Jesus Christ.
 
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
 
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
 
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We invite you to look at what CMB offers and consider joining our association. Together we can change our world!
