On January 1, 1982, the switch was pulled and Cathedral of Faith became the home of The Religious Channel; 24 hours of Christian programming on Gill Cable, the largest cable company in the nation at that time. The dream of reaching the lost through such a powerful medium now took on a local dimension. In 1986, Cathedral of Faith started KLXV Channel 65; a full broadcast Christian television station with a potential of reaching over six million people. The church owned this station for over a decade.
