The Jesus Film Used Worlwide to Teach the Gospel

The Jesus Film is highly effective tool used worldwide to spread the Gospel.
The film is a docudrama on the life of Jesus Christ based on the Bible Gospel of Luke.
There are links below to the film and the children's version.

The film was produced by the Jesus Film Project and is a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
Below are some amazing statistics from their website
-Every 4 seconds, a person indicates a decision to follow Christ after watching the "JESUS" film.  
This equates to 21,000 people per day, 630,000 per month and 7.5 million per year.

Since 1979 the JESUS film has been...
-  Shown in more than 220 countries
-  Translated into over 1000 languages
resulting in...
-  225 millions decisions for Christ
-  100's of 1000's of Churches planted.

What's next?
More than 2 Billion people have yet to hear God's message of salvation so they can have the opportunity to say "yes" to Christ.
Partner with the Jesus Film Project to help reach millions more.
You can bear Eternal Fruit.
