Director's Welcome

Director's Welcome

Welcome to Hope Channel – Deaf!  This internet channel was created especially for the Deaf and those who are hard-of-hearing.  It is part of nearly 50 Hope Channels reaching around the world with God’s good news for a better life today and for eternity.   This is an international channel that includes five languages: English, Portuguese, German, Spanish and French. All programs are either captioned or in sign language.  More languages will be added.

 

The programs of this channel focus on four different categories: Family, Health, Bible Study, and Nature. Six different themes will emerge from this programming: God loves, God creates, God redeems, God inhabits, God transforms, and God triumphs!  For a more complete description of these themes you may go to: https://www.adventist.org/en/beliefs/ .  To be more specific, we believe you will find that:

 

  • God is love and He has revealed Himself in His Son, Jesus Christ. 1 John 4:16; John 14:9.
  • Jesus is the divine Son of God, and not a created being, but the eternal God. John 1:1.
  • Jesus came to this earth to live a perfect life and give His life on the cross to redeem us from our sin. Romans 5:6-10.
  • When Jesus comes into our lives, He makes us new creatures. 2 Corinthians 5:17; Hebrews 8:10; John 14:15.
  • Bible prophecy reveals that the end of this world is imminent and Jesus will return soon. Revelation 22:12.
  • We are commissioned to share Jesus with others and be prepared for Jesus’s soon return. Revelation 22:17.

 

We trust you will find inspiration, a better understanding of the Bible and hope for today and tomorrow.  Please feel free to share with us your comments:  www.SpecialNeeds.Adventist.org  We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Sincerely,
