「開路者」音譯自希臘文,英文為“Kairos”,意思是「時機到了」。

二十世紀八十年代初期,面對社會現代化的轉型期和華人遍布世界的現狀,一群關愛華人靈命造就的神國僕人和基督教會,於一九八四年成立了不分宗派的非盈利基督教機構「開路者傳播中心」,並在美國和挪威註冊登記。 一九九五年改組為「開路者國際傳播協會」。

「開路者國際傳播協會」緊握神賜下的時機,探索教會的發展、牧養、造就及差傳等多方面需要,製作創新的多媒體查經視聽和靈修教材。

FEBC

While attending Southern California Bible College, God planted in the hearts of two young men named Bob Bowman and John Broger a vision for missionary radio that would one day become Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC). They shared this vision with Reverend William Roberts, the pastor of a church that Bowman’s parents attended, who enthusiastically supported their plan; Roberts and his church were the first to assist FEBC through prayer and funding.

In 1945, FEBC was officially incorporated by Bob Bowman, John Broger and William Roberts and established with one goal in mind: broadcasting Christ to the world. They had no supportive board at the time, and were not affiliated with a specific church denomination. Instead, they followed God’s lead to launch a ministry that focused on sharing Christ with the people of Asia. With nothing more than a heart to reach the lost and an understanding of radio’s ability to reach far and wide, they leaned on this promise from God: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will guide you with my eye” (Psalm 32:8).


中國信徒佈道會(下簡稱「中信」),是由一些旅居海外,信仰純正的華人基督徒組成的。我們是按主耶穌基督的吩咐,「到普天下去」,透過文字、普通話廣播及宣教士差派,將福音傳給「萬民」。我們以耶穌基督為元帥,竭誠聯合信仰純正,同一異象,同一負擔的弟兄姊妹及教會,共同努力,拯救靈魂,將福音傳遍地極。

中信事工創辦人王永信牧師早期在歐洲旅行佈道時,獲神展示一個向全世界華人傳福音的異象:「你要為本國之民大發熱心。」便於一九五八年往美國修讀神學,畢業後,於一九六一年在北美密西根州底特律市,以每月廿五美元租了一個獨立車房,開始四人禱告會,神給他們看見向外廣傳福音的最好管道,是通過文字的出版。並於一九六一年十月,正式在美國成立「中國信徒佈道會」,成為一間超宗派的福音機構。
