Have You Heard of the Four Fantastic Facts?

The Four Fantastic FactsThe popular and practical Four Spiritual Laws is now available in a fun, illustrated booklet designed for elementary-aged children. Written in simple language that children can understand, it presents the gospel as four facts instead of four laws. We believe this will soon become one of your favorite tools for children's ministry and a tool that older children can use with their friends.

You can preview The Four Fantastic Facts online in English and Spanish.

The JESUS Film

The JESUS FilmExactly who was Jesus Christ? This movie answers that question, the most accurate film ever made about Christ, so true-to-life that viewers will feel like they are in first-century Palestine with the Savior. JESUS was filmed on location in Israel in biblical settings with a cast of more than 5,000 Israelis and Arabs. And virtually every word is taken directly from the Gospel of Luke.

JESUS — the most widely translated film in history — is currently available in more than 1,400 languages.
