Tell others about Jesus:

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). _________________

Have you received Christ as your Lord and Saviour?    

Plan of Salvation _________________

 

This four-in-one collection includes the stories of black Christians who were leaders in the struggle for equality: 

  • Dr. James W.C. Pennington, an escaped slave who became a pastor, educator, and outspoken abolitionist; 

  • Harriet Tubman, a conductor on the Underground Railroad who led more than three hundred slaves to freedom; 

  • Mary McLeod Bethune, who became the first black woman in America to establish a four-year college; and 

  • Rosa Parks, whose refusal to give her bus seat to a white man helped ignite the modern Civil Rights movement.  Each knew that human dignity is a gift of God-and worth fighting for.
