Some of the more popular films include The Hiding Place, The Restless Ones, and Last Flight Out. Billy Graham recognized the power of film for ministry, often saying, “Thousands will come to see a film who would never come to hear a preacher.”
So when the BGEA began making movies in 1951, it wasn’t to entertain Christians. In fact, some Christ-followers were wary of motion pictures. The ministry’s goal was to share the Good News through any means possible.
The productions were well-made, dramatic and appealing to non-Christians. World Wide Pictures became a pioneer in sharing the Gospel message through motion pictures.
In many cases, WWP movie audiences received materials explaining how to come to Jesus Christ in repentance and faith after the showings. These included response cards that were mailed directly to BGEA headquarters for follow-up.
“Hundreds of thousands of individuals accepted Christ kneeling on sticky concrete floors in theaters across America,” said Barry Werner, former director of operations for World Wide Pictures.
Billy Graham appears in a number of the films, which span from 1955 to 2003. Some of the productions have been translated into as many as 38 languages and shown around the world. In all, World Wide Pictures produced over 130 films and most importantly, recorded more than 2.5 million decisions for Christ.
Additionally, several BGEA films are currently available on the Pure Flix streaming platform. The Christian movie production company offers a number of BGEA titles in both English and Spanish.
