Plan of Salvation ____________

Tell others about Jesus like Jonathan Goforth did:

 Though we are not all called to the ministry of Foreign Missionary, 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). ____________

Author: Rosalind Goforth

The remarkable story of a man whose influence is still felt in China today.

...the Boxer Rebellion...

After conversion to Christ as a young man, Jonathan Goforth eventually arrived in China with his wife Rosalind.  They endured incredible hardships, including the loss of their first child to malaria. They fled for their lives from the Boxer Rebellion.

...to spearhead a revival... 

Deeply inspired by a reading of Finney's Revival Lectures, Goforth set out with renewed determination and faith to spearhead a revival which rarely has been equaled in the history of modern missions.

Goforth's amazing spiritual journey from political ambition to missionary revivalist in China.

...Jonathan adopted the dress and style of the Chinese people...

Like Hudson Taylor (Founder of the  China Inland Mission), Jonathan adopted the dress and style of the Chinese people in order to relate.  His devotion to God and to the Chinese people is a challenge to anyone wishing to impact others with the love of Christ. ________________________
