When Life Began



In the early 90's Radio Rhema (as it was then known) had grown to 17 stations but was under increasing pressure to be 'all things to all people'. Some thought the music was too rocky, some thought it wasn't rocky enough; so it was decided to branch out. Christchurch was the original home of Life fm, it began broadcasting in 1993 on a loaned frequency, when that load ended. Life FM restarted fresh in Auckland on 99.8FM, and in the Waikato / Bay of Plenty on 94.6.


It's been exciting to see Life FM expand and grow with new stations coming on air all over the country. Life FM can now be heard by over half of New Zealand on the airwaves, and globally online. As we look back over the life of this station so far, we thank God for his awesome provision.

The next step in Life FM's history is up to you! We can't continue doing what we do without the generous support of our listeners, in speaking well of us, in praying for us and supporting us financially. We also need help from local groups who are willing to coordinate and contribute to setting up Life FM in areas that currently don't recieve our broadcast. If you'd like to find out more about helping in your area Contact Us for details. You just need to look at our Frequency Page to see how quickly Life FM has spread throughout New Zealand, and it's thanks to people just like you putting in the hard yards to get the life affirming sound of Life FM into their areas... your area could be next... maybe it's up to you...
