Faith News Network is part of the Church of God’s effort to stay on the forefront of effective usage of technology to communicate to our church body.
We’re committed to helping you to experience this web site as fully as possible. This section is designed to help you make sure your computer is equipped to use the industry standard technologies employed by the Faith News Network web site.

Faith News features streaming video and audio, a technology that allows our visitors to experience news in a multimedia format, without having to wait for lengthy download times. To view this type of media, you’ll need RealPlayer Basic, a free program that’s available from the Real.com web site. Make sure you choose the free version, available on the site.

To display complex formatted documents for printing purposes, sometimes this site employs Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF), which is read by Adobe Reader, a free program available on the Adobe web site.
The Church of God site also occassionally features PowerPoint files that were originally delivered as part of a group presentation. These files can be viewed using the Microsoft Internet Explorer, or in Microsoft PowerPoint.
