With Easter around the corner, it is the perfect time to bring people to know about the love of Christ. Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) is encouraging churches, colleges and individuals to share Billy Graham's last message 'The Cross' with friends and family this week.

"I want to tell people about the meaning of the cross. Not the cross that hangs on a wall or around someone's neck, but the real cross of Christ. I know that many will react to this message, but it is the truth, and with all my heart I want to leave you with the truth." Billy Graham said.

The half-hour evangelistic video features a Gospel message from Billy Graham and the stories of rapper Lecrae and singer Lacey Sturm. 

Franklin Graham, president and CEO of BGEA, points out that he has high hopes that people here will also find Christ during this time.

"The My Hope America program, The Cross, is being re-aired this Easter week on Christian networks including TBN and others. What a perfect opportunity to have unsaved family and friends watch it with you. You can then ask at the conclusion if they would like to know Jesus Christ personally by receiving Him as their Savior. I believe The Cross is one of the most powerful programs my father has ever done. It had a dramatic impact this last November, when millions watched it and over 100,000 people shared with us that they made decisions for Christ," Frankin Graham said.

Several My Hope videos are available online and on DVD, you can also watch "The Cross" on TV this week. Click here for TV listings. 

Last November, more than 4 million households tuned in to watch "The Cross" on Fox News Channel, Christian cable networks and more than 100 local television stations across the nation.

More than 26,000 churches across the United States officially registered for the project, making it the largest U.S. outreach in the 64-year history of the BGEA.
