30 years filming.
700+ gospel videos.
One prevailing message.
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 video we produce is centred on the most influential person in history, Jesus Christ, the hope, insight and inspiration from his life and teachings are transforming millions of lives.
Jesus often taught using stories and parables. Many of us remember the stories told us from childhood. Today, unfortunately, many gain their moral compass from stories as told in movies and television. To counter this we believe that, "a visual generation requires a visual gospel."
Our film work started in 1985 with a documentary filmed on location in Israel. Our first digital films streamed over the internet in 1997 in dialup formats. As internet technologies developed, our work in sharing the gospel via media also improved. Many of our videos are just a few minutes in duration, with longer videos added later.
Our mission and ministry in film has always been to simply share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Of the 700+ gospel films produced, our topics essentially have focussed on the essential "Rs" of " Receive Jesus", "Resurrection Hope", "Return of Jesus", and "The Rest of God". All intersect and exult in the identity, life and ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Reflecting over the past two decades, producer John noted that, "When we started sharing the gospel via film, we really had no idea of how far-reaching and effective media streaming could be. There was always, however, that call to persist in exploring the timelessness of God's grace and truth in our complex world of faith-versus-secularism."
We hope and pray that you are blessed and encouraged by the gospel message here as shared via media.
We invite you to partner with us in this labour. Please pray that the LORD of the harvest would call and commission many more disciples, who with fervent vision and Christ-centred identity, embrace with diligence the work of supporting ministry work. We need capable media producers, editors, presenters and those gifted in apologetics who can speak into this generation’s greatest need. This requires personal sacrifice in the LORD Jesus Christ's service so that yet another person can hear the good news. Jesus wants us to step up into his vision and purpose.
The name of Messageweek Media Ministries is derived from the weekly cycle of work and Sabbath rest. It's on the sanctified and blessed seventh day of the week that many followers of Christ receive their spiritual nourishment from the Word of God. Our lives are busy. Our days often full of cares. But when Sabbath comes, we reject the enslavement worldly mammon, and instead experience a freedom in Christ that transcends this world's cares. Over the past two decades, we have uploaded a new gospel video almost every week.
A visual generation requires a visual gospel!
In November 1997 we streamed our first short gospel film via the internet.
Still in its fledgling days, the internet we worked with was still based on dialup modem-speed videos of 160 pixels width. Two decades later, with ever increasing speed and bandwidth, we're still sharing the ageless and timeless message of salvation and glory in Jesus Christ.
In over two decades, we've produced hundreds of gospel videos dedicated to sharing the good news in an environment that now cares less about God than its forebears used to.
Today, a lot of our content is appreciated by followers of Christ around the world looking for teaching material or sermons to utilise for Sabbath worship.
