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

Remaining in Wisdom
All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees. Psalm 18:22

His laws are not the same as governmental laws which when broken, have the consequences of incarceration. However, there are some similarities. When we turn away from the wisdom of what God has said there are consequences and they could even be eternal. God wrote his commands not as a killjoy for our flesh, but as a fulfillment of our life.

The flesh should not get to decide how we will respond to the world but often it shouts. Our tendency may be to take our cue from how the flesh is reacting, but David reminds us to keep God’s laws before us just not in a legalistic way. To keep God’s truths, we need to resist the urge to cooperate with the flesh when it conflicts with wisdom.

Godly wisdom is life producing and living in wisdom, which God provides, will keep our path from becoming filled with the sinful consequences. The way God provides us wisdom is through His word. Becoming a student of his word will bring insights into our daily living.
