The Cornerstone TeleVision Network is a Christian broadcast and satellite television network based in Wall, Pennsylvania, United States. Its founder and CEO is Russ Bixler. The network has 44 full-power and 56 low-power affiliate stations, and it is on the Glorystar satellite service.
In the late 1970s, Norma Bixler claimed to receive a vision from God during a visit to the Christian Broadcasting Network. The vision was for her and her husband, Russ Bixler, to build a Christian television station near their home in Pittsburgh. Despite many potential hurdles—financial, legal, personal, and logistical—Russ eventually came to share the vision.
The Bixlers were helped along with way with prominent leaders such as Pat Robertson, Loren Cunningham, and Jim Bakker. With the support of many volunteers and the talents of professionals such as Bill Freeman, Oleen Eagle, Stan Scott, and Eleanor Clarke, the vision of a Christian television station in Pittsburgh became a reality.
That signal was first broadcast on Easter Sunday, April 15, 1979.
Cornerstone Television Network broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Programming includes preachers, teachers, international leaders, movies, documentaries, music, and holiday specials for people of all ages.
The show "Origins" is a popular show on Cornerstone Television. It focuses on creation science, disputes commonly accepted scientific principles, and attempts to present scientific evidence supporting a young earth.
