Tell others about Jesus like D. L. Moody did:
Though we are not all called to the ministry of Evangelist, we are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians. Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

"God has given me a lifeboat and said...'Moody, save all you can.' "
Dwight L. Moody could be called the Billy Graham of his generation. But a more appropriate appellation might be "father of the American evangelical movement," for without Moody, the reaching of souls worldwide would likely have occurred decades later. Moody's self-described "lifeboat" set sail for Great Britain in 1873 on a modest evangelistic tour.
His ministry...was simply to save souls...
Appealing to audiences abroad with his heart-warming stories, Moody meant with immense success and returned a national hero. From then on this shoe salesman from Massachusetts with a heart for America's struggling masses would not be silenced until he had realized "the evangelization of the world in this generation."
Characteristic of Moody---and of Graham a generation later---was his desire to work independently of church denominations. His ministry, without elaborate theological embellishment, was simply to save souls, and to that end, his vessel was never ashore.
