Local Origination
CSN has over 400 translators across the nation, and most are capable of Local Origination announcements.

Local Origination refers to radio announcements that are broadcast only within a translator's area. A translator's transmission can be heard 20 - 30 miles from the source, depending on the terrain.

The FCC allows 30 seconds at the top of the hour for broadcast of Local Origination – messages that are of local interest, such as church invitations. This air time is reserved for ministry use only.

In each time zone, the 24 hour clock is broken up into 10 "rotations." (A rotation is simply the name for a certain set of air times). Each rotation has 2 or 3 air times per day. For example: church invitations on Rotation 9 in the Pacific timezone run at 12:00 PM (Noon), 6:00 PM and 8:00 PM.

The suggested donation depends on the number of rotations you choose and your location. The average cost is $100 per month, per rotation.

Local Origination announcements run 365 days a year, so notices can be inserted for special events, in addition to the normal church invitation.

NOTE: CSN is in the process of installing new receivers that don't use the rotation system. On these receivers, the spots will be loaded to the air times you choose. Please contact us for information about the receiver in your area.

World Religions & Cults
World Religions & Cults: Counterfeits of Christianity (Volume 1)
Bodie Hodge & Roger Patterson
This eye-opening first volume presents a clear and thorough analysis of counterfeit religions like Mormonism, Islam, Deism, Jehovah's Witnesses, Zoroastrianism, and many more.
Religions in today's culture seem to be multiplying. Have you ever wondered why certain religions believe and practice what they do? Or how they view the Bible? This volume delves into these and other engaging questions, such as:
  • How can a Christian witness to people in these religions?
  • Do these other religions believe in creation and a Creator?
  • How do we deal with these religions from a biblical authority perspective?
Many religions and cults discussed in this first volume openly affirm that the Bible is true, but then something gets in their way. And there is a common factor every time - man's fallible opinions. In one way or another the Bible gets demoted, reinterpreted, or completely ignored. Man's ideas are used to throw the Bible's clear teaching out the window while false teachings are promoted.

This book is a must for laymen, church leaders, teachers, and students to understand the trends in our culture and around the world where certain religions dominate, helping you discern truth and guard your faith. When you understand a religion's origins and teachings, you are in a better position to know how to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ as you take the good news to those in false religions.
