Introduction & Copyrights

Welcome.  The Billy Graham Center Archives is happy to make available to Christian ministers and laypeople as well as the general public and scholars this collection of Billy Graham’s sermons and speeches. We hope that it will be a blessing to many. Through this page, any person can access thousands of Rev. Graham’s sermon notes and outlines. Click on the button above on the right for some suggestions on how to do searches of this database.

The sermon manuscripts (BGC Archives Collection 265) on this website (the “Sermons”) are made available through the generosity of Billy Graham, the Billy Graham Literary Trust and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The availability of the Sermons on this website is intended to further the mission of the BGC Archives to provide resources for the evangelistic mission of the church.
