Jesus Film / Village Ministry

According to Campus Crusade for Christ 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 1/4 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 dubbed in more than 1,200 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 it is 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.

In almost every overseas project in which EPI is involved, the “JESUS” film is used to share the gospel and plant churches. Since 2010 over a half million people have viewed the “JESUS FILM” through the ministry of EPI.

A few moments from our Ghana and Zambia, Africa ministries:

  • Jesus Jesus


“And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.   Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:  teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”   Matthew 28:16-20 (KJV)
