The founders of the newspaper have a vision to make it India’s leading Christian daily.What we do: Good news, first! That's our burden. Good news is not just the Gospel but also the positive side of Christian living. But that doesn't mean we don't report bad news. Persecution, end-times watch, falling idols and Biblical prophecies that come true are part of our reportage. We are dependent on God and independent of any denomination, groups or organizations. Neither do we let advertisers influence news coverage nor do we print puffed up handouts. We are fair, neutral and non-judgmental. Because we believe in a God who tells the truth and expects us to be like Him. Why a Christian newspaper? At the heart of our media mission is this motto: Evangelism through journalism. The purpose of this newspaper is to report newsworthy religious events and activities within the local community, nationwide and around the world, to increase the awareness and activism of believers regarding the moral issues of today, to provide thought-provoking commentary, and to provide an effective advertising vehicle for Christian ministries and organizations, events and businesses that want to reach the Christian community in India and abroad.

A Saudi Arabian man cut out the tongue of his daughter and burned her to death after finding out that she had converted to Christianity.
The girl came to know about Jesus Christ through the Internet, according to Gulf News. Her father found about her conversion and killed her “following a heated debate on religion” the source indicated. The man is currently in custody. There is no indication as to the killer’s identity or the date of the crime except “that the killing happened recently”, International Christian Concern (ICC) reported.
The killer works for the mutaween (Commission for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice), an arm of the government that enforces religious purity and is the government’s face of persecution to Christians in Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia is intolerant of Christianity and non-Muslim faiths. Its education curriculum openly inculcates hatred against Christians and other non-Muslims through their textbooks and teachers.
The Saudi Arabian officials are using their huge oil wealth to export Wahabbism (the most intolerant version of Islam) to other countries.
In its recent press release regarding the Saudi government school in Northern Virginia, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom indicated that, according text books at the school “It is permissible for a Muslim to kill an apostate (a convert from Islam)”.
From Ethiopia to Indonesia, Saudi Arabia’s oil money is fueling the killings of Christians and destruction of their property.
ICC’s president, Jeff King, said that “Saudi Arabia has to treat Christians with the same respect that it wants Muslims to be treated in other countries. It has to stop exporting hate and persecution against Christians in other countries.”
PRAYER POINT: Mark 13:12 & 13 say: "Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:"
Pray that the Lord of Hosts will redeem the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with His eternal love. Pray for the underground churches in existence in that country.
