We are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37

"The enemy is behind us.
The enemy is in front of us.
The enemy is to the right
and the left of us.
They can't get away this time!"

General Douglas McArthur

"My words are Spirit and Life, and not to be weighed by the understanding of man. They are not to be drawn forth for vain approbation, but to be heard in silence, and to be received with all humility and great affection."
Thomas à Kempis

"Brethren, we must preach
the doctrines;
we must emphasize
the doctrines;
we must go back to
the doctrines.

I fear that the new generation does not know the doctrines
as our fathers knew them."

"One hundred religious persons
knit into a unity by careful
organization do no constitute a
church any more than eleven dead
men make a football team.
The first requisite is life, always."
A. W. Tozer

"The Lord gave the word:
great was the company of
those that published it."

Psalm 68:11

A true revival means nothing
less than a revolution,
casting out the spirit
of worldliness,
making God's love
triumph in the heart.

The list below includes the names of some of the most godly and influential Christian leaders, ministers, and missionaries of the modern age. We would do well to heed their words and follow their examples. "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ."   1 Corinthians 11:1

Editor's Note:   Though I've been careful about the selection of names on this list, I know full well that not everyone agrees completely with the writings and teachings of every name listed.

In fact, with careful study, you will find that most of the men and women listed below have been labeled before as either a rebel, fanatic, mystic, or even a heretic somewhere along the line, usually from within the Church itself.

However, genuinely believe that they have given much to the advancement of the Kingdom of God, and should that same quality of holiness and zeal live in us today, we would certainly see the world turned upside down again.
