    I am 65 years old. when I was 17 I heard Billy Graham preach on my parents TV. I remember that night like it was yesterday. I became a Christian that day! Praise God!

  2. Lauretta Ward says:

    I thank God for Billy Graham! You don’t hear preaching like this anymore. Thank You for continuing to encourage those who believe and live alone. Even now in this Dark Hour. I was only a month old when he preached this sermon. God has truly used this man in a great way!

    What passion…what a gift…Billy Graham is an inspiration to all, and it’s amazing how the 10/18/58 Video message is needed NOW…it could be repeated and aired today…so many need this NOW as ever before. Thanks so much for having this on the internet, and the archives…

  6. Douglas Burleson says:

    I have been called by God to reach out to others and proclaim the Gospel, and I love what the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has done, from the past to what it has done now. I recently watch “Heaven”, Billy Graham’s new film, and I loved it. I am going to send the DVD to those I know who don’t know Christ and I am going to continue to spread Billy Graham’s messages and sermons all over Facebook and Instagram. It was in fact Billy Graham’s “My Hope America 2013” that allowed me to truly see how much God loves us and to see why Christ died. I had no idea what all of it meant until I saw Billy Graham’s sermons. I listen to other evangelists like Ray Comfort and I have been inspired to go out and to proclaim the Gospel myself. God bless

  7. John Williams says:

    Just listened to Mr. Graham’s message from Charlotte in 1958. What a beautiful, powerful message.
    What a wonderful man of God. I was 17 when this message went over to air. I didn’t hear it then since I was in the Navy and leading a self centered life. But thank God that all changed in Feb of 1979 when I finally bowed my head and asked Jesus in my heart. He heard my prayer and came into my heart and its been a miraculous life since then. I love Billy Graham. Thank you so much.

  8. Ernest Atta Adjei says:

  9. John Ribe says:

    I grew up -with Billy Graham on the radio–The Hour of Decision-1950 – 1970’s, & TV broadcast. I first heard Billy @ a crusade rally in Minneapolis in ~1949 or ’50 as a 6 or 7 year old, then sang in the choir in Chicago’s McCormack Place ~1964 or ’65. He has been a blessing to me many years!

  10. Octavius Johnson says:

    When I was a child, I remember hearing Rev. Graham with my grandparents. And he was part of my rebirth, I would just like to say thank you letting God use you
