Tell others about Jesus like Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin did:
We who are Christians 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). _____________

Questioned Major Teachings of the Church of the Middle Ages
1520-1560 was one of the most tumultuous times in the history of the world. The course of western civilization was dramatically altered. During this period the Swiss Reformation exploded and sent forth waves that eventually reached much of the world. This program looks at its key centers of Zurich and Geneva and its central leaders, Zwingli and Calvin.
Zwingli, the colorful Pastor at Zurich, searched the scriptures and questioned major teachings of the church of the Middle Ages. He rapidly instituted sweeping reforms. Accepted ways and worldviews were challenged and changed. Inevitably conflicts erupted. Zwingli's career was foreshortened when he was killed in battle defending truths he judged more important than his own life.
Geneva was an important refugee center and became known as the "women's paradise" because of laws regarding how men were to treat their wives.
Calvin was the leading thinker of the Reformation. A quiet scholar, he was pressed into leadership at Geneva after its city council voted for reformation. Years of struggle ensued, but Calvin laid the foundation that made Geneva a unique international center. _________________________
