The Inspiration Network, also known as Inspiration, and often referred to by the initials INSP, is a Christian television network headquartered in Indian Land, South Carolina, near Charlotte. It is the flagship network of The Inspiration Networks, which is owned by the Inspiration Ministries. It features family value-based programming, with programs from more than 70 different ministries representing more than 20 different denominations, plus original programming for children, teens, and families.

The network came out of the "Praise The Lord" (PTL) Television Network (also known as PTL - The Inspirational Network), founded in the late 1970s by Jim Bakker, a televangelist notable for his daily Christian variety program, The PTL Club. In 1990, following Bakker's scandalous fall from grace that had bankrupted the PTL ministry and Heritage USA, televangelist Morris Cerullo bought the PTL cable television network for $7 million.[1]

After Cerullo purchased the network, it was rebranded as "The New Inspirational Network", later becoming "INSP - The Inspirational Network" and then "INSP - The Inspiration Network". In the fall of 2008, the network debuted a new logo and dropped "Network" from its name. The network is now known simply as "Inspiration."
