Who We Are

Our Mission
Many people don’t know the Bible or understand what it says, so many don’t know how to apply God’s Word as their guide for life. HighBeam Ministry’s mission is “Teaching God’s Word as Truth For Faith and Practice.” Our goal is to effectively help those who seek God find meaning in life, and develop lives that strive for God’s standard, impacting the people and culture around them for good.

Our Vision

HighBeam Ministry creates dynamic media productions to teach God’s Word through radio, podcasts, social media, online classes, seminars, blogs, and the printed page.
