The international Christian music group Hillsong United has found a unique way to spread the love of God.

Their musical documentary "The I Heart Revolution: We're All in this Together" highlights the needs of people around the world and how the church can minister in practical ways.

The group filmed the feature-length production over two years of tours across six continents, 42 nations and 93 cities.

"Our walk with God is one that starts when we wake up and runs all the way through, and I think each and every one of our guys is solid," said Hillsong member Joel Houston.

"One thing I know I'm always endeavoring to spend more time with Jesus. I think you can never spend enough time with him," added Jonathon "J.D." Douglas of Hillsong.

The cross-cultural journey shows the group's personal experiences while touring the world, and how God's word was revealed through the people they encountered along the way.

"The name of Jesus -- there is no on name above it I think that we can trust in that name and not have to trust in our name or any other name," Douglas said.

Hillsong United just wrapped up the U.S. leg of their tour, and CBN News interviewed the group backstage.

"The spirit of God is in each and every one of us and I think we don't have to do the work ourselves," Douglas said. "We can rely on the presence of God to do the work and our job is actually simple. It's to get their attention off themselves and off us and onto Him."

While on tour, Hillsong partnered with local churches to coordinate food drives in each city. The group said this is just one way Christians can help meet some of life's most practical needs.

"It's great we lift up our voice and we praise God. But I think we all know that's fantastic as long as we understand that we've got a call to action to make a difference," Houston said.

The Hillsong documentary is now available on DVD, Blue-Ray, and for public screening.
