Our role at Crossover is to support evangelism through Australian Baptist Churches. We have created a new video resource for Easter 2018 to help you communicate the message of Jesus and the gospel this Easter. In this year’s video Karl Faase examines a popular misconception about the purpose of the life and death of Jesus and suggests a more powerful, personal application.
This video is ideal for use in services or events over Easter, posted on your social media platforms, on your church website, and made available to church family to share it with their friends.
To share this video online we recommend you share from vimeo, by clicking the share icon (arrow) on the video above, rather than sharing this page which is designed to inform you about the video’s purpose.
If you church has participated in the national Jesus the Game Changer campaign, then this short video should tie in well with your teaching in the lead up to Easter. For those churches who have not participated in the national campaign, the Outreach Video should be separate enough to be used as a stand alone video and sermon.

Easter Postcard Resources
Your church will no doubt be planning special events to celebrate Easter. These postcard resources are aimed at helping you invite people to explore further Easter’s true meaning.
Below are some options designed for mass distribution through your community, or for use in special Easter outreach events, or more effectively for individuals to use as a part of a personal invitation. Each design is available for free download below. You can add your church details and print them out yourself, or take them to a printing service for edit and print.
Obviously material of this nature will not contain every element and nuance of the Christian faith. What we’ve put together has the aim of being a hook or an invitation to explore further. Many of Jesus’ stories in the public marketplace were like that. They keyed in to local understanding (or misunderstanding!) and sowed seeds of inquisitiveness that enticed people to find out more. We think the best place for people to do that “searching” and “finding out more” is a community of faith like yours, so we’ve designed these resources with the hope that they might point people in the direction of your church – especially at Easter time.

These cards can be edited for your needs. The files are provided in print ready PDF version with an editable box for you to personalise with your own church details.

It Is Finished
This card seeks to contrast many of the most famous saying of history with the significance of the words of Jesus on the Cross.
