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

My Jesus, I Love Thee
"I'll love thee in life,

lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved thee,
My Jesus tis now."

"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.

John Fletcher

Daniel Rowlands

Daniel Rowlands   Preached with an unmistakable power of the Holy Ghost
One of the greatest spiritual champions of the last century. Thousands of my countrymen, I suspect, have some little acquaintance with Whitefield, Wesley, and Romaine, who never even heard the name of the great apostle of Wales.

Frederick B. Meyer

Frederick B. Meyer   One of the greatly loved preachers of his day
Said one author: "The phrasing of Meyer's sermons was simple and direct; he polished his discourses as an artist polishes a perfect stone. There was always a glowing imagery in his words; his speech was pastoral, lovely as an English valley washed in sunlight... In his day, great wars raged. Those who went to hear him forgot the battles."

John Bunyan

John Bunyan   English Baptist preacher and writer
"John Bunyan was born in Elstow, England, near Bedford, where he spent most of his life. Although today he is regarded as a literary genius, he had little formal education. At the age of sixteen, this rough and profane young man enlisted in the army of Parliament, and saw active duty during the English Civil War. In 1647, at the age of 19, he married a young woman, who persuaded him to attend church with her regularly, where he heard the Gospel."

Smith Wigglesworth

Smith Wigglesworth   He lived so that people would only see Jesus
His ministry is summed up in his own words, "There are four principles we need to maintain: First, read the Word of God. Second, consume the Word of God until it consumes you. Third believe the Word of God. Fourth, act on the Word." As George Stormont put it, "He lived so that people would only see Jesus."

William Tyndale

William Tyndale   Translated the Word of God into the English vernacular.
"During the time that Tyndale was occupied with the translation and printing of the Scriptures, he was also involved in writing theological treatises. Tyndale has primarily received fame for his translation work, and deservedly so. However, he was just as concerned that the Scriptures be applied to the doctrines and practices of the church to bring about a true reformation."

Jonathan Edwards

Jonathan Edwards   Considered to be one of the men most responsible for the Great Awakening
Jonathan Edwards and his wife had eleven children. He spent one hour each night in conversation and instruction with his family.

John G. Lake

John G. Lake   English Methodist preacher and writer
Events led John G Lake to follow his calling into the ministry which would shake two continents, Africa and America. The call of God was so strongly on His life that he sold all that he had, and took his family to Africa where he believed God was calling him to minister the gospel. After a fruitful life during which he served God, and was used of God in the most extraordinary ways, he finally died on 16 September 1935.

E. M. Bounds

Edward McKendree Bounds   The mighty prayer warrior

Watchman Nee

Watchman Nee   Christian Author and Martyr in China
"Watchman Nee was born in Foochow, Fukien province, China. Although he was born to a family that was very familiar with the gospel, he rejected Jesus Christ for almost all of his adolescence. Trying to decide whether or not to believe in the Lord, he began to pray. Suddenly the magnitude of his sins and the reality of Jesus engulfed him and at the age of 17, he accepted Christ."

Brother Lawrence

Brother Lawrence   Practiced the presence of God
" Brother Lawrence was a French monk (Carmelite) who lived from 1611 to 1691. Prior to becoming a monk he was known as Nicholas Herman of Lorraine. Like St. Francis, as a young man he was a soldier, but after becoming a monk he lived a quiet life performing various domestic chores for his monastery."

T. Austin-Sparks

Theodore Austin-Sparks   As few men have ever known Him
"T. Austin-Sparks was one of the great spiritual figures of he twentieth century. When the measure of a man's ministry is taken as to how much he exalted Christ, then T. Austin-Sparks is without peer. The golden cord which ran through all his works was the exaltation of his Lord, to read Sparks is to discover Christ as few men have ever known him."

George Whitefield

George Whitefield   Deep passion for the Gospel
"In 1737, when only a twenty-two year old Oxford graduate, George Whitefield's voice startled England like a trumpet blast. Attacked by clergy, press and mob alike, Whitefield nevertheless became the most popular and influential preacher of the age. At a time when London had a population of less than 700,000, he could hold spellbound 20,000 people at a time at Moorfields and Kennington Common."

General William Booth

General William Booth   Founder of the Salvation Army
"The idea of an Army fighting sin caught the imagination of the people and the Army began to grow rapidly. Booth's fiery sermons and sharp imagery drove the message home and more and more people found themselves willing to leave their past behind and start a new life as a soldier in The Salvation Army."

J. Wilbur Chapman

J. Wilbur Chapman   A powerful evangelist.
"It is a very difficult thing to make a rule for another to live by. The rule which governs my life is this: anything that dims my vision of Christ, or takes away my taste for Bible study, or cramps me in my prayer life, or makes Christian work difficult, is wrong for me.; and I must, as a Christian, turn away from it."

William Ames

William Ames   Quoted more than Calvin and Luther
"William Ames was born in 1567 at Ipswich in Suffolk, that region east of Anglia where Puritanism had first "begun", and where the persecution of the crown was least effective. His father was a merchant who was sympathetic to the Puritan cause; his mother was a relative of later colonist Pilgrims of Plymouth, Massachusetts."

Ira Sankey

Ira Sankey   Evangelistic and Hymn Writer
