Who We Are

Brodcasting the "...things that become SOUND DOCTRINE." Titus 2:1


Port Allen Educational Broadcasting Foundation


The goal and purpose of WPAE and KPAE Radio is to present teaching programs that support the SOUND doctrines of scripture and play the pure SOUND of Southern Gospel Music. This ministry radio began in September, 1985 with these goals and purposes clearly in mind so that believers could be edified and built up to do the work of ministry, Eph. 4:12.Our call letters reflect that purpose.

PORT ALLEN EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING FOUNDATION is a tax exempt 501 (c)(3) organization recognized by the IRS and licensed by the FCC as a non- commercial radio station. We are supported by the gifts and prayers of our listening audience. Our regular listeners and supporters who have responded to the needs of the ministry and the prompting of the HOLY SPIRIT, have made it possible for us to broadcast the “..things that become SOUND doctrine.”(Titus 2: 1)

We want to be known as the radio ministry with a consistent message of sound doctrinal teaching – SOUND RADIO. We want to be SOUND in every area of the ministry as we broadcast 24 hours a day to a potential audience of one million people. Will you help us?

All gifts are tax deductible. An IRS approved tax receipt is sent at the end of each year.

Doctrinal Statement

Maintaining a voice of integrity and a source of hope and truth! Grace & Truth Radio (John1:14). 

Article I 

God is a Person who has revealed Himself as a Trinity in unity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit – three Persons and yet but one God.

Article II

The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is a divine revelation, the original autographs of which were verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit.

Article III

Jesus is the image of the invisible God, which is to say, He is Himself very God; He took upon Him our nature, being conceived by the Holy Ghost and born of the virgin Mary; He died upon the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice for the sin of the world; He arose from the dead in the body in which He was crucified; He ascended into heaven in that body glorified, where He is now, our interceding High Priest; He will come again personally and visibly to set up His kingdom and to judge the quick and the dead.

Article IV

Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and, in that sense, is lost; this is true of all men, and except a man be born again he cannot see the kingdom of God; salvation is by grace through faith in Christ who His own self are our sins in His own body on the tree; the retribution of the wicked and unbelieving and the reward of the righteous are everlasting and as the reward is conscious, so is the retribution.

Article V

The church is an elect company of believers baptized by the Holy Spirit into one body; its mission is to witness concerning its Head, Jesus Christ, preaching the gospel among all nations; it will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air ere He appears to set up His kingdom.
