We are a not-for-profit, free community media service, using emerging film and streaming technologies to share the best news we could ever hear!
Because each short film is centred on the most influential person in history, Jesus Christ, the hope, insight and inspiration derived from Jesus' words have transformed millions of lives.
Jesus often taught using stories and parables. Many of us remember the tales told us from childhood. Nowadays, many gain their moral compass from stories told in movies and television - thus we believe that "a visual culture demands a visual gospel."
Our film work started on a documentary filmed in Israel in 1985, and then our first digital gospel films were streamed in 1997 in dialup formats. As the internet developed and technologies improved, our work has been to share the gospel by media. Many of our videos are just a few minutes in duration, with longer videos added later.
Over two decades, our mission and ministry in film has always been to simply share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Of all the 530+ gospel films produced, our topics have focussed on the three "Rs" of "Hope of the Resurrection", "The Return of Jesus", and "The Rest of God".
Producer John Klassek said, "We really had no idea, when we started of how far-reaching and effective media streaming could be. There was, however, always that calling to persist sharing the gospel. Apart from providing remarkable training for all of us, it's exciting - as it is challenging - to explore the timelessness of God's grace and truth in our complex world of faith-versus-secularism."
We hope and pray that the ongoing "good news of the life and teachings of Jesus Christ" as streamed here blesses and strengthens your faith in the gospel message!
