CHARLOTTE, N.C. (ANS-SEPT. 2, 2016 ) Over the last 14 years, millions around the world have heard the Gospel through My Hope, a ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
My Hope has launched an all-new 30-minute program entitled “Decisions” which will be accessible-free of charge-anywhere via television broadcast, internet streaming and DVD.
According to a news release from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), “Decisions” features a Gospel message from Franklin Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
It also looks at the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds who have heard the Gospel through Graham’s 2016 Decision America Tour and made life-changing decisions to follow Christ.
Speaking in the news release, Franklin Graham said, “I’ve been talking to people about the importance of decisions. I see thousands of people faced with a choice… and I want (them) to know the truth.
He added, “Any time you have a crowd of people, I can guarantee there will be somebody in that crowd that doesn’t know Jesus Christ. So, every time I’m at the microphone I’m going to give the Gospel.”
Through the Decision America Tour, is holding prayer rallies in each state capital encouraging Christians to vote, to live out their faith in every part of their lives, and to pray for their nation.
As the tour travels to all 50 states in 2016, Graham is presenting the Gospel-the hope found through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
“Decisions,” the 2016 installment of the evangelistic films available from My Hope, follows in succession of previous films. They are, “Value of a Soul” (2015), “Heaven” (2014), and “The Cross’ (2013).
“Decisions,” will also be shown as the Billy Graham television special airing on local and Christian networks beginning Oct. 10. Readers are asked to check local listings for airings in their area.
“We are very happy to offer this resource to the church which will powerfully present the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Steve Rhoads, vice president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, responsible for My Hope globally and also speaking in the news release.
He added, “The church in the United States has a unique opportunity at this moment to proclaim Jesus, who offers hope and redemption to a lost world. We pray that the good news will be preached and that God will bring a revival to His people.”
