He said the decision by the Church to open a TV station was as a result of the television industry being dominated by some unscrupulous, dishonest, crooked and charlatan religious broadcasts, which has dented the image of Christianity.
He said Presbyterian Television channel would offer viewers un-adulterated word of God and offer proper teachings, true Christian doctrines, preaching of the word of God and bring people to the saving-knowledge of Jesus Christ.
The signing of the contract was received by the staff at the General Assembly Office and Ministers of the Church who were present with lots of applause and excitement.
The Moderator said the Presbyterian TV channel, when opened, would live up to expectation as a religious channel to spread the good news.
The Consultant intends to commence work within 10 days of the signing.
