With a population of over 1.3 billion people, India is very densely populated. Over 2000 of the 2295 people groups in India are still considered unreached with the Gospel. Multiple religions are practiced throughout India, but Hinduism is the largest religion there, and only about 2% of the population profess to be Christians. That means there are still over 1.2 billion people in India who don’t yet know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior!
Since 1978 The Tide® ministry has been using radio broadcasts to share the Gospel throughout India. Our radio ministry in India has grown from a single Hindi language broadcast to include radio programs in eight Indian languages, and we plan to reach even more people groups in the future. All these programs are produced in our studio in India using indigenous ministers who can effectively communicate the message of Christ to their own people in their mother tongue.
The Tide radio ministry in India is complemented by effective discipleship activities including literature distribution, Bible correspondence courses, seekers conferences (discipleship seminars) and a radio distribution project we call “Radios for India.” This combination of ministry elements has proven to be extremely effective in changing lives throughout India and planting churches where believers can be nurtured in their faith and through which whole communities can be drawn into the Kingdom of God.

To broadcast in India, we are required to do compassionate ministry outreaches. We do this through children’s literacy programs! This is just one of the many ways The Tide has boots working on the ground.
