The creators of faith-based TV series The Chosen are celebrating after the show recorded more than 400 million worldwide views in April, according to Angel Studios. 

"You did it! Thank you for getting us that much closer to a billion today," a post on the show's Facebook page read. 

The series, which narrates the life of Christ and his disciples, has been viewed more than 405,268,000 times worldwide, with fans mainly based in the U.S, Brazil, Canada, UK and India. 

Directed by Dallas Jenkins and distributed by Angel Studios, The Chosen is the first-ever series based on the life of Jesus and,  in 2019, became the No. 1 crowdfunded media project in history. 

In a recent video statement, published in the The Chosen's YouTube Channel, Jenkins said the reaction by fans of the show had completely "reignited" his faith in Christ. 

"The show has brought me closer to Christ. The show has made me focus less on religion and more on Jesus - and my kids who never watch anything faith-related now want to watch it and [are] loving it."

"God is really doing something immense," Jenkins said. "And the proof that it's God-driven is in the fact that what they're saying is, 'I'm reading my Bible more than ever. I'm praying more than ever, my relationship with Jesus has been reinvigorated more than ever.'

"Every now and then," Jenkins said, "it's good just to be reminded of why we're doing it."

Season three of the series is currently being filmed.
