Apple iOS 11 will not allow you to listen to our web streaming


Monday, October 16th, 2017

Attention Apple users:

Temporary stream to use

 

Or, use the app "tune in" and search for call letters WFSO.


Streaming from our website is having problems with Apple products iOS 11, but *does* work with earlier iOS versions. We believe the recent problem is due to Apple not supporting legacy SHOUTcast which is used by our streaming system. New Apple p
hones most likely will no longer support our legacy streaming, and those that upgrade will likely have the same problem.  

>>>Android phones work fine. Windows-based laptops work fine. <<<

 

We are working to see what we can do here at Redeemer - sorry for the delay for those of you using iOS 11.  In the meantime, again, use this link:

or use the app "tune in"




Working on a new, stronger signal for the Hudson Valley


Saturday, September 30th, 2017

Dear listener,

We continue to work on launching a new, stronger signal for the Hudson Valley. About $34,000 has come in towards this important project. We are doing everything we can to keep the cost as low as possible while building this out with reliable equipment. We have run into one serious hurdle regarding how to mount our antenna at a minimal cost - please pray for us that the Lord may grant us wisdom to work through this issue.  

Your donations are crucial, so that we can launch this much-needed signal. 

This is a way to provide strong coverage into Poughkeepsie, Red Hook, Saugerties, New Paltz, Wappingers, Pleasant Valley, Pine Bush, and towards Middletown, etc.  

We are humbly asking for your support.

You may give via PayPal here. 

Much of our old 105.3 signal is being interfered with, due to a competing translator signal in Newburgh, NY. It is wiping out our old coverage in many areas to the south of Esopus NY.  It is also interfering in areas never suspected (e.g., West Hurley, Shokan, and north of New Paltz).  

We really need your help to launch a new signal that will give us better coverage.  Please help us.

Why do we exist as a broadcast ministry?


Monday, August 28th, 2017

How is Redeemer unique?

First and foremost, Redeemer grew out of the church. Our Board of Directors and our Advisory Team are all churchmen. We grieved over the “end of the church age” false teaching that another radio ministry from California was pushing some years back. That sad history became the impetus for starting Redeemer. We have vowed to support the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. For clear teaching on the church, see here.  We affirm that the visible church does exist and will always exist until the Lord comes1

We provide real support to faithful churches by airing programming that is consistent with the Historic Christian faith. Church members are spiritually helped by consistent biblically-faithful teaching and godly music. We help church members during the week when they are not able to attend church. We will remind the listener of the unique role that the church has in administering the sacraments of the Lord's Supper and Baptism. We repeat the proclamation of the word of God by airing many sermons that have occurred in these faithful churches. 

Our music is a refreshing uplift while remaining calm and melodious, and our teaching is a mix of various men of God from around the nation. In our teaching, we do not spiritualize everything. All of the Bible applies to all of life - Jesus is Lord over all. As Abraham Kuyper said: “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”

We practice localism in the areas in which we serve. Redeemer engages the community by airing local public service announcements, local public affairs, re-broadcasting local churches, and providing up-to-date local weather reports for both morning and evening for each station and affiliate. In Southern Maryland we have a regular presence at the county fair, and enjoy meeting our friends. We've added Bill Shishko's A Visit to the Pastor's Study to our Saturday line up. This live program originates on Long Island at WLIE-AM, and is now heard over the Redeemer network of stations. This is another way of increasing our localism and interacting with our listeners. 

We work hard to broadcast strong, godly content, and not just a "Hallmark" greeting card style with little remarks thrown in. For an example, visit these links: A PLAIN ANSWER or HOLDING ALL THINGS TOGETHER. Again, each Saturday we offer a live call-in program as we partner with Reformation Metro NY: A VISIT TO THE PASTOR'S STUDY

You will find that we are optimistic2 regarding the spread of the gospel of Christ.  Finally we are truly accountable to an Advisory Team and to churches.  

 

1. The California radio network alluded to still does not embrace the visible church. Their current statement of faith only affirms the invisible church. They remain overall, in a church-denying posture, particularly in light their broadcast teachings over the past 14 years, and the continued airing of their founder, who was a proven heretic.  For more information see here.

2. By this we mean all that the second petition in the Lord’s Prayer implies, namely: 
“Thy Kingdom come; that is, rule us so by Thy word and spirit, that we may submit ourselves more and more to Thee; preserve and increase Thy church, destroy the works of the devil, and all violence which would exalt itself against Thee; and also, all wicked counsels, devised against Thy holy word; till the full perfection of Thy kingdom takes place, wherein Thou shalt be all in all.” – Heidelberg Catechism Q/A 123

Mission to Myanmar


Saturday, August 19th, 2017

A PLAIN ANSWER for today 8/19/17

Mission to Myanmar - Pastor Mark Robinette

Myanmar is a country located to the west of Thailand in Southeast Asia. It was formerly called Burma. Conditions are extremely difficult there with people in serious poverty. The country for many years, was ruled by a military junta, and while rich in food, the people were deprived because of the government, and some were starving. Today we talk with a pastor who ministers to a small church in Ohio. This pastor and his wife have 8 children and they extend their love for children to the virtually fatherless children in Myanmar. They help the children at the Rakhine Orphanage Center.

Participants: Pastor Mark Robinette, Dan Elmendorf
