Last summer, BNC reported that Wilkins Radio Network’s removed all programming from churches of Christ from their offerings. The network’s founder and CEO Bob Wilkins had said it was because we would not agree that salvation is by faith only, but instead, teach the necessity of water baptism.

In an email to BNC correspondent Glenda Williams, George Merritt said he received a call from Wilkins’ Vice President Barry Bright earlier this month. Mr. Wilkins has now relented and is offering several incentives for churches of Christ to return to his network.

George’s program, “Power and the Glory,” the “International Gospel Hour,” and “In Search of the Lord’s Way” were specifically mentioned, he said.

“I give credit to Mr. Bright for this policy reversal,” George wrote.
