You know the story. A young man grew up in a Christian home and was considered to be a “good kid,” but everything changed after he left home for college. Sadly, he left more than a family behind … his faith was also lost along the way. Instead of attending church, he focused on a busy social life. Secular teachers undermined his beliefs. Religion took a back seat. The result was a rocky relationship with family, new sets of worldly values and friends, and a life drifting far from God.Amazing Facts and Doug Batchelor have a plan to rescue others from this sad fate. Will you step out in faith and help?

Would you like to help married couples across the nation experience vibrant, lasting marriages—blessed unions for life? God has the answers … we just need to get those answers to the people who need to hear them. Will you help Pastor Doug and Amazing Facts do that?

Have you ever sensed that a church leader was compromising Bible truth in order to gain popularity and power? You shouldn’t be surprised, for Jesus warned, “Take heed that no one deceives you. … Many false prophets will rise up and deceive many” (Matthew 24:4, 11 NKJV). Pastor Doug boldly tackles the rise of a popular but dangerous and false gospel message that could soon be attacking your church from within—like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Will you help be a vital force for genuine salvation in these compromising times?

What is the value of a soul?

Noah is one of the most extraordinary evangelists in history—not because he had many converts, but because of his faithfulness to preach an unlikely, unpopular message in a violent, sinful age.

So many people think the best way to prepare against future catastrophe is by hoarding food and gas or stockpiling guns, gold, and supplies in some “doomsday shelter.” But according to Jesus, if you’re only thinking of saving yourself, you’re probably doomed anyway.Pastor Doug confronts the many dire last-day predictions challenging the faith of believers—and shares the only way that God’s people can truly prepare themselves for the end of the world.

There is so much confusion regarding prophecy among Christians and nonbelievers alike today—popularized in books, TV programs, radio shows, and websites—especially when reckless, specific predictions of Christ’s return are broadcast and then fail to happen. It makes every believer look gullible and undermines the credibility of God’s Word before the whole world.It’s high time Christians do something to set the record straight concerning Bible prophecy. See now what Pastor Doug has to say about this controversial and vital topic.
March 29, 2011
There is a real danger living in this age of global media and instant news. The world has experienced so many major disasters in recent years that we’re at risk of becoming so calloused to catastrophe that we no longer hear the sirens of prophecy—even as millions are still wandering this world without the Savior. That’s why more than ever, Christians need to be about the work of sharing the gospel with the world and sounding the early warning system that Jesus’ return is imminent.Join Pastor Doug as he uncovers today’s latest headlines and explores whether they truly have prophetic significance for God's people.

We live in perilous times. As a nation, we are fighting terror abroad and at home. Families are struggling to stay together while the institution of marriage is being challenged in our courts.

But we first need one special thing before we can truly change the world. ... So what’s the secret? Find out with Pastor Doug Batchelor ...

The recent story of the trapped Chilean miners has many profound, touching spiritual parallels in our lives. God has sent Jesus, the Light of the world, down into our dark planet to bring us up to the mansions He has prepared.

We must send them the hope of heaven—before it is too late for them!
