Billy Graham’s ministry touched the lives of people of every age, race and background. His legacy continues at the Billy Graham Library where his words resonate with the simple message he preached around the world. Billy Graham said, “Everywhere I go I find that people … both leaders and individuals … are asking one basic question, ‘Is there any hope for the future?’ My answer is the same, ‘Yes, through Jesus Christ.’”
