Total Living Network is a Christian broadcaster focused on spreading the gospel message through media. Our programming line-up includes award-winning original programs, sought-after talk and teaching programming; local and national, faith-based movies and entertainment, kids programming, and much more.
Our mission has remained consistent for over 40 years now: Direct people to Christ and address life’s concerns through media. We want to provide hope and encouragement for those of the faith, and be a safe place for families to be entertained; and we want our programming to impact those seeking Christ and a new way of life.
Total Living Network has a heart for the Greater Chicagoland area. As a broadcaster in the market since 1976, we are dedicated to meeting the needs of our audience. Our goal is to communicate the need for a TOTAL relationship with God; body, mind, and spirit. We believe each person was created by God, needs God and through God can live a vibrant, healthy and wholesome life that is a blessing to themselves and a positive spiritual influence to others. We consider media to be a strategic tool for communicating these truths.
Ministry is our highest calling
Excellence is our standard
Creativity and visionary
Maintain a Biblical worldview at all times
Statement of Faith:
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and inherent in the original writings; they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
We believe man was created in the image of God; that he sinned constituting the fall and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. And that, as a result, all human beings are born with a sinful nature and upon reaching the age of moral responsibility are held accountable to God as sinners in thought, word and deed.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
We believe in “that blessed hope”, the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe all that receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust: the just to everlasting life, and the unjust to everlasting damnation.
At TLN, we stand committed to being a spiritual influence in our home market of the greater Chicagoland area – but with the miracle of digital media, our impact has expanded!
One wonderful example is our long-time partnership with ALFA OMEGA TV, which broadcasts TLN’s programs into Romania, Moldova and Eastern Europe. And because of TLN’s ability to transmit live 24 hours a day through ROKU, Amazon FireTV and other IP platforms, we have reports of people watching on the computers, tablets and mobile phones around the globe.
This international expansion is because of partners and donors who faithfully support our mission both prayerfully and financially. We’re thankful that God is allowing us to broadcast His message of love, forgiveness and hope into communist, social and other repressive regions of the world. God multiplies all that we give Him. Together, we’re called to go to the ends of the earth and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15) – won’t you join us?
