Every eight seconds, somewhere in the world, another person indicates a decision to follow Christ after watching the “JESUS” film.
Every eight seconds… that’s 10,800 people per day, 324,000 per month and more than 3.8 million per year! That’s like the population of the entire city of Pittsburgh, PA coming to Christ every 28 ¼ days. And yet, if you are like many people, you may have never even heard of it.
Called by some “one of the best-kept secrets in Christian missions,” a number of mission experts have acclaimed the film as one of the greatest evangelistic tools of all time. Since 1979 more than 200 million men, women and children worldwide have indicated decisions to follow Jesus after viewing the film. In addition, through hundreds of partners an estimated 10+ million decisions have been made as the film “JESUS” is used extensively by the Body of Christ worldwide.
“But how can any single film reach so many people and touch so many lives?”
It is the power of the Word of God in their heart language.
Based on the Gospel of Luke, the “JESUS” film has now been translated into 1,145 languages, with new languages being added every month. This allows God’s Word to speak to people in more than 200 countries in languages they know and understand. By God’s grace, it is yielding a spiritual harvest of unprecedented results.
Not only is the story of the “JESUS” film one of effective evangelism, but also a powerful tool for expanding the church worldwide. Hundreds of churches, missions groups and denominational agencies, both indigenous and global, are also seeing this tool ignite the launch and growth of thousands of new churches.
One denominational leader, whose ministry has used the “JESUS” film for more than a decade, has said that its value in accelerating their church-planting efforts is equivalent to “fishing with dynamite!” His ministry alone has birthed more than 26,000 church fellowships using the “JESUS” film in dozens of languages.
God is using this film in powerful ways to reach people and build His church worldwide. And yet, so much of the world remains in spiritual darkness. Billions of people have never had the opportunity to hear God’s message of salvation and say “yes” to Christ.
The JESUS Film Project is reaching millions with the gospel of Christ, but with your help, so many more can be reached. By getting involved today, you can make a difference in the lives of people through the message of hope—Jesus, and bring God’s light into the darkness.
