History + Vision

The Board of KCWN wants you to know what we believe and what guides our work here at 99.9.

 

Our Purpose

First and foremost, we at KCWN desire to glorify God with our music and programming. We acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ and recognize His call for us to spread the Good News of salvation through Jesus, to encourage and build up fellow believers, and to be a shining light and positive influence in our community.

 

Mission

Glorifying God through great music and enriching programs, KCWN proclaims the lordship of Christ the King and shares the hope of salvation in Jesus, encouraging and edifying believers while shining gospel light into local communities.

 

 

Beliefs

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. It shines in the world’s darkness and illuminates life.

There is only one God, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God the Father created all things and cares for all things, providentially ruling every aspect of life under his sovereign and loving will. Not a hair can fall from the head of believers without the will of our Father in heaven.

The Lord Jesus Christ is the son of God, born of a virgin, who lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and died a sacrificial death that provided all-sufficient atonement for humanity’s sins. He bodily rose from the grave and ascended to heaven, where he sits at the right hand of God the Father, ruling and reigning with all authority. He will return again in power and glory to establish his kingdom in all its fullness.

The Holy Spirit regenerates the hearts of believers and equips them to live godly lives, comforting and keeping the universal church until Christ’s return.

 

Our Vision

KCWN signed on the air in October, 1995, with 25,000 watts of power, declaring that Jesus Christ is Lord. Our mission and purpose remains the same today, to share the hope of Jesus Christ.

 

Vision

KCWN desires for all listeners to hope and praise Christ the Lord, guided in godliness by the Word’s shining light.

 

K = Kingdom – Praising God and praying for his kingdom to grow in the world and in our lives

C = Christ – Proclaiming Christ’s lordship and serving him with humble hearts

W = Worship – Adoring and loving God above all while living every minute in awareness of his presence

N = Network – Nurturing relationships within church and community to more effectively share the hope of Christ

What to do with a Troubled Heart
Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. Psalm 25:17

There is no greater answer for our troubles than to have a conversation with our Lord. Not a one-sided conversation but truly enter a time of listening. Often, we want to share our anguish but how regularly do we want to hear feedback. This prayer takes more than sharing our troubles for it takes waiting in His presence and receiving instruction.

We all have a trusted friend we share the troubles of our heart with but what if we looked towards God as a trusted friend and confidant. He is ready to hear from us and will help us as our friend with the problems we carry.

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:15

He calls us his friends and His desire is to sit with us in our troubles and anguish. His friendship is motivated by love for us for His very essence is love for us. When He approaches our problems, he hears them through love, so I’m not sure why we wait to carry all our difficulties to our friend.
