Amazing Facts is a non-profit Seventh-day Adventist evangelistic ministry. based on the teachings of Scripture, and is a worldwide ministry based in Sacramento, California, which conducts seminars and streams by satellite, 24 hours a day, seven days a week on TV and satellite across North America and the world. It especially focuses on the Three Angels' Messages of Revelation 14. Beginning as a radio program dedicated to Christian evangelism, it has expanded into television programming, training, lifestyle, educational, health, prophecy seminars and online Bible study ministries.
Amazing Facts was founded in 1965 by Joe Crews in Baltimore, Maryland. Inspired by the success of The Rest Of The Story, hosted by Paul Harvey, Joe Crews' original objective for Amazing Facts was to reach out to both Christian and non-Christian listeners via daily 15-minute programs by opening with a scientific or historic fact, and how it applies to the overall Biblical messages. Later, the program offered accompanying home Bible study courses, as well as books written by Crews himself. In 1987, Amazing Facts initiated a television ministry that has expanded to four programs as well as periodic evangelism series.
Shortly before his death in 1994, Crews invited Doug Batchelor to assume the position of president/speaker, which he holds to this day. Today, the Amazing Facts radio program "Bible Answers Live" broadcasts mainly out of Sacramento, California each Sunday evening to about 155 national stations.
Amazing Facts programming is available on a variety of over-the-air, cable and satellite stations In addition, programs are archived on the website.
