Today, the Bible, & You was started by John Barela in 1984.
It is a non-denominational Bible-teaching ministry, which means we are not affiliated with or supported by any specific church or denominational group.
God supplies our financial support through the generous gifts of our readers and ministry friends.
John Barela is a non-denominational pastor and teacher, author, and former TV and radio commentator.
He began the Christian ministry, Today, the Bible & You in 1981 which highlights current events and Bible prophecy.
John was born again, having his sins washed in the blood of the Lamb under the ministry of Dr. J. Vernon McGee in downtown Los Angeles in 1961,
John became interested in prophetic Bible research. He loves Bible prophecy and previously hosted a weekly television and radio ministry from 1985 to 1995.
He still publishes a monthly newsletter, Today’s Frontpage which deals with current events and Bible prophecy.
John has a Ph.d in Pneumiatric Counseling, was a member of the Board of Directors of Faith Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Council of Christian Churches, (with a membership of more than 200 million worldwide) established by Dr. Carl McIntyre to stand in opposition to the liberal World Council of Christian Churches.
The International Council of Christian Churches (Abbreviation: ICCC) was founded in August 12, 1948 at the English Reformed Church, Amsterdam, as an orthodox Bible centered group of constituent national churches with opposition to the more liberal-leaning World Council of Churches.
One of the main leaders of the movement was Carl McIntire, a Presbyterian minister, who also founded a number of Bible colleges and the American Council of Christian Churches
John has been extensively involved in worldwide missions, having traveled to more than sixty countries holding Bible Seminars and mission outreach.
“Today’s FrontPage” is our monthly newsletter.
Our motto is “Keeping you informed.”
As believers are made aware of current events and how they may affect them, their family, and their faith, they are better equipped to live victoriously.
FrontPage provides articles that strengthen your faith, alert you to concerning present national and world issues, and inspire you while pointing you to the Blessed Hope of the believer.
Our missionary outreach is one of the essential functions of Today, the Bible, & You.
We currently have a growing work with schools and orphanages in India, Myanmar (Burma), and Bangladesh.
We also support native missionaries in the Philippines and have built two radio stations in the Amazon Valley of Peru, which broadcast godly teaching and music 24 hours a day.
