The network was founded in 1982 by Al and Tommie Cooper with its first full-powered station based in Roswell, New Mexico. It is now produced in Midland, Texas by Prime Time Christian Broadcasting with KMLM serving as the flagship station. The network is available on terrestrial broadcast television and cable TV systems. With five full power stations (four of which have DTV counterparts for compliancy with the FCC's 2009 standards) and 22 low-power TV stations, GLC has a solid southwestern United States base. God's Learning Channel is also broadcast free-to-air from the AMC-4 satellite as part of the Glorystar package, as a free-to-air channel on the Intelsat Americas 5 satellite for other direct-to-home broadcast dishes, and is available as streaming video over the Internet.
On April 15th, 2006, GLC launched on APR-1 (Insat 2E) to provide its signal to India, Israel, Asia, Eastern Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Australia. Because of the APR-1 satellite, GLC has established a foundation on many cable systems in the Philippines. On May 1, 2007, GLC was able to launch on the EutelSat W2 which covers Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Russia for direct-to-home satellite viewing.
GLC focuses on several main aspects that affect the Church today:
- Bridging the gap between Christians and their Hebraic heritage.
- Standing against Replacement Theology by proving through scripture that Christians do not Replace the Jews as the Chosen people, but are rather grafted in to the promises given to their father Abraham.
God's Learning Channel offers 24-hour programming. GLC has a diversity of programmers such as family counselor/coach Joe McGee, Drs. Negiel Bigpond and Jay Swallow who reach out to Native Americans, Christian programming in Spanish from Dr. Dell Sanchez, Rico Cortes, Yohanan Salamanca, and Dr. John Pendleton. Due to a more international audience, GLC has added Christian programming in Persian, Tagalog, and Chinese.
