We believe lies about Jesus must be exposed before the truth of Jesus can be believed. That requires a thorough biblical and historical defense of who he claims to be-as our God and Creator, and as our Savior and Risen Lord.

By freeing people from lies, doubts and misconceptions-we gently move them toward a clearer, more comprehensive understanding of who Jesus is and his purpose for their lives.

To Reach 1 Billion People by 2030

During 2022, our goal was to reach at least 100,000 people every day. This year, we want to achieve at least 1,000,000 website visits every week.

That is like filling 10 of our nation's largest football stadiums every week and seeing about 20,000 people indicate a decision to follow Jesus!

In addition to that, every day, thousands of these people will complete a thorough, persuasive presentation of evidence about the resurrection of Jesus and his true identity.

Mission statement

JesusOnline Ministries uses internet technologies to help people in more than 200 countries and territories discover who Jesus really is, receive Him as Lord and Savior, follow Him through personal online discipleship, and share Him with others.

A History of God's Blessings

Inspired by Dr. Bill Bright's vision to reach the world for Christ, Larry Chapman began a life-long quest to investigate the evidences for the Christian faith. When approached by a Young Life leader requesting answers to help a struggling student, Larry was prompted by his wife, Marianne, to write a summary of the compelling evidences supporting Christianity.

After reviewing evidence and scholarly perspectives on both sides of these issues, he authored a number of articles which examine the questions and present the evidence obtained through his many years of research.

Through mutual friends, his articles were reviewed for potential publication by Dr. Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ. Dr. Bright was excited about the potential use of the articles as evangelism tools and endorsed their publication. The articles were produced by Bright Media Foundation after Dr. Bright's death in 2003 as Y-Jesus and Y-Origins magazines.

With a desire to make the content of these magazines easily available to a larger audience, JesusOnline Ministries was created. The original articles were made available worldwide through the and websites. JesusOnline Ministries then began actively promoting the articles through the use of online advertising to attract visitors to the sites.

The Y-Jesus articles have been translated into 18 languages with websites reaching people in every culture and country of the world.

In 2012, was developed with a focus on further outreach to young people and providing discipleship materials for spiritual growth and multiplication.

In the spring of 2020, the JO Discipleship App was launched to help visitors continue to grow in their spiritual understanding and relationship with God. It has become a community where we help members progress through the various stages of growth in their journey with God.

During the past 16 years, tens of thousands of resources have been provided to seekers, believers, and Christian leaders. The gratitude for these resources from international missionaries and pastors has been overwhelming, as many of them live in countries where Christian literature is difficult to obtain.
