* Older title notice: The Evangelism Trilogy was produced between 1988 and 1992. Certainly, things like clothing and hairstyles have changed since then. However, some things never change, and many consider this work from Mars Hill to be an exceptionally effective presentation of timeless truths. Ongoing demand for The Evangelism Trilogy warrants its continued distribution.
FUTURE TENSEBefore the recent wave of "prophecy films," there was Future Tense. This is the story of a young man's belief in the imminent return of Christ, and his sense of urgency to share the Gospel with his family.
Winner of The Chris Award in the Columbus International Film Festival 3 Crown Awards, including Best Evangelistic Film The Finalist Award in the Houston International Film Festival
" ... a gripping, powerful way to communicate the Gospel to friends and loved ones. I heartily recommend Future Tense." - Luis Palau, International Evangelist
Imagine a young man who truly believes that Christ could return at any moment, and that opportunities to share the Gospel with his family and friends would be lost forever.
Soon after reading about the second coming of Christ, Michael has a dream in which he and his family are waiting to board a plane. But this is no ordinary plane. This plane is bound for heaven. Tragically, all but Michael and his younger brother miss the plane. As the plane pulls away, Michael must watch his family from the plane's window, knowing that this is the last plane out, and there will be no other - ever.
Michael is so affected by his dream that he makes a tape for his family, describing the dream and the events surrounding Christ's return as he understands them. Through the imagination of family members, we will experience the incredible events and images described on Michael's tape. Running Time: 30 minutes

WITHOUT RESERVATIONThis is the story of six teenagers and their unexpected appointment with eternity. If you think you have plenty of time to share Christ or respond to Him, think again.
Winner of The Chris Award in the Columbus International Film Festival 2 Crown Awards, including Best Evangelistic Film The Silver Award in the Houston International Film Festival
Named "The most effective film they have ever used" by the majority of youth workers responding to a Group Magazine national survey
"Zounds! What a film!... an emotional and intellectual knockout." - Jim Hancock, Youthworker Journal
Six teenagers leave the party. Four of them enter a new dimension, never to return. Victims of a fatal automobile accident, they find themselves suspended in time and space, somewhere between heaven and hell. Through a "window" in space, they are able to observe those they have left behind, and to preview their individual destinies.
Stripped of all pretense, they each have a dramatically different response to their situation. The "almost Christian" is overcome by the realization of her folly. The "practical agnostic" is in bitter denial. And the "silent Christian" is confronted by his close friend, "Why didn't you tell me while there was time?"
This sobering story concludes with an unexpected turn that powerfully communicates the hope we have in Christ. Without Reservation will move Christians to share their faith with a renewed sense of purpose, and will challenge others to seriously examine their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Running Time: 25 minutes

MOMENT OF TRUTHThis is the story of Norman's "moment of truth": a moment when powers of darkness are restrained by angels of God in response to prayers of believers.
Finalist in The Houston International Film Festival "If you saw the first two videos in this Evangelism Trilogy, you'll not want to miss the last. Like the others, Moment of Truth packs a wallop..." - Lowell Saunders, Moody Monthly
"The direction, acting, and special effects are excellent... It is clear that much love and care goes into each and every Mars Hill production." - Ted Baehr, Movieguide
This is the story of Norman's "moment of truth": a moment when powers of darkness are restrained by angels of God in response to prayers of believers; a moment when Norman's resistance to God has been worn down; an optimum moment to encounter Christ. But still, only a moment.
Cheth is the angel assigned to Norman. Aenon, also an angel, is visiting from another world. As Cheth briefs Aenon, we learn of the disease that has infected mankind, and of the Master's plan to rescue humans. We discover Norman's pain as a child of divorce, encounter the demon assigned to keep Norman from the Master, and meet Allen, the human chosen by the Master to speak the truth to Norman.
In the creative and compelling style for which Mars Hill films have become known, Moment of Truth powerfully communicates the drama of sharing and receiving the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Running Time: 28 minutes
