The JESUS film is the visual presentation of the gospel of Luke. It has been translated into more than 1,000 languages and has been seen by more people worldwide than any film ever made.
“The JESUS film is one of the most effective Great Commission tools of our times–perhaps ever.”
–Dr. H.C. Wilson, General Superintendent Emeritus
The JESUS Film Partnership of Global Partners (JFP) works through various international Wesleyan churches, using the film as an evangelistic tool to reach the lost with the good news of Jesus Christ and to plant churches. The JFP strategy is as follows:
- Evangelism: JESUS film teams are national teams chosen and managed by national Church leadership. The plan and budget for evangelism are established by the national Church.
- Lay Leadership Mobilization: Pastors and lay people from local national churches are mobilized and trained to take part in every showing. People responding to the film are prayed with individually by local Christian workers.
- Follow-up: JESUS film teams assist the follow-up conducted by local churches and districts under the direction of a national Church’s structure.
- Church Planting: The JESUS film teams expect to plant Wesleyan churches, as well as strengthen existing Wesleyan churches.
- Partnership: North American partners provide resources for training, travel, tools, and technology that national Churches are unable to provide.
“The power of the JESUS film is its presentation of the teachings and the actions of Jesus. The miracle of the gospel is that Jesus can touch the felt cultural and spiritual needs of any society.”
–John Connor, former Director, JESUS Film Partnership of Global Partners
