Eternal Word Television Network is dedicated to the advancement of truth as defined by the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church. The mission of the Eternal Word Television Network is to serve the orthodox belief and teaching of the Church as proclaimed by the Supreme Pontiff and his predecessors.
The goal of the Eternal Word Television Network is to provide the means by which the various organizations within the Church will have a nation-wide vehicle of expression. This will be provided for them without charge as long as their spirituality remains within the theological context of Mother Church. This is best evidenced by the acceptance of the Dogmas, Rules and Regulations of the church in all matters, but especially as they relate to the topics on which their television presentation is based.
As the Eternal Word Television Network exist to provide a media for orthodox endeavors, this mission statement should be viewed as the basis of our foundation for this essential spiritual growth ministry, not as an attempt to censor any organization or individual.
