Radio Bible Class

Radio Bible Class of the First Baptist Church of Memphis made history in 1924 when it launched WGBC (World’s Greatest Bible Class), one of the earliest radio stations in Memphis. Launched by the men of the church, it provided a Sunday morning Bible study for listeners (it was not until some years later that the church began broadcasting the morning worship service). When the church sold the station, it retained a 99-year lease to broadcast each week, and for almost 90 years, that ministry has touched the lives of travelers in cars, jail inmates, hospital patients and nursing home residents, as well as many people listening in their homes. The class lesson is broadcast at 9:30 a.m. on ESPN 680 AM and ESPN 92.9 FM.
