Into The Light began with four simple observations:
There are pervasive sins that affect every Christian in the local church (like pornography).
Books can equip Christians to fight sin and care for each other.
However, not everyone is a reader.
Therefore we need video resources to equip and inspire Christians.
Into The Light produces free documentaries and video series for the local church, which applies God's word to the pervasive sins that affect every Christian.

We can create free resources because of a growing team who believe in supporting resources to tackle pornography in the church.
In 2022 we raised 85k to launch the Into The Light documentary. In 2023 we are raising support for a new series of projects, including a NEW video series for parents on teaching their kids about pornography.
