Avis B. Christiansen

With Rhyme and Reason: A Word Portrait of Avis B. Christiansen Many a lost soul has been won to the Lord by wandering over the cobblestones of memory’s lane and hearing again the sweet hymns of the church. When the roll is finally called up yonder, Avis B. Christiansen will find stars in her crown never dreamed of. As poetess and hymn writer, her inspired words have brought easing of pain to broken hearts and, through the Holy Spirit, helped to work the miracle of salvation in many others. Mrs. Christiansen has both the rhyme and the reason for expressing … Read More >


Our Relation To Other Churches - Part 2

In the February issue of this paper, under this same caption, I tried to show the origin of our church. Who cares to know his church ancestry will find it in this former article, where it is shown that the North Market Hall Sunday School grew into an independent church as naturally and inevitably as boys grow into men. It is true that our church in its governmental relations is wholly independent of any and all other organizations, but this was simply an incident as shown in the former narrative. It is not true, never was, and never will be … Read More >


How To Please God

A Word of Encouragement and Cheer I would call your attention to the words of Paul in the first chapter of Colossians, verses 9 to 11. “For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; “Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, unto all patience … Read More >


The First Great Reunion In The History Of The Moody Church

The first great reunion in the history of The Moody Church was held from Sunday, October 25th to Sunday, November 1st, 1908. The thought was originally suggested by Elder J.M. Hitchcock. The committee selected to carry out the plan consisted of J.S. McGlashan, chairman; J.M. Hitchcock, G.F. Fisher, A.F. Gaylord, C.S. Kerfoot and E.Y. Woolley. Eighteen sub-committees were appointed and preparations were immediately gotten under way to insure a successful gathering. Several hundred special invitations were sent out to former members and friends, to which there was a hearty response. A beautifully illustrated program … Read More >


Celebrating The Joy Of Changed Lives

This excerpt was taken from The Moody Church’s 150th anniversary book, Celebrating the Joy of Changed Lives, now available for purchase. D.L. Moody: A Man for Our Times Dwight L. Moody most assuredly was a man for his times, but thanks to his legacy, he is a man for our times as well. He ministered in what is known as the Gilded Age, when the industrial revolution fueled economic growth and investors were striving to make their millions. These were the days of Marshall Field, the Rothchilds, and Cyrus McCormick. As for Moody himself, he left his humble home … Read More >


William Whiting Borden

A Brief Sketch of William Whiting Borden by Beulah Bishop An unusual man, William Whiting Borden was born to material wealth; was naturally endowed with exceptional gifts—great mental powers, rare qualities of character, and vigorous physical strength. His future in any field of endeavor would have been promising. But it was as a very young boy (seven years of age) that he stood during a life-consecration service in The Moody Church. He was very young—and he stood a long time—this little boy in a blue sailor suit; but from the decision made then, Borden was never to waver. That decision … Read More >


Our Relation To Other Churches - Part 1

It were well for every domestic household to know its own family genealogy. The Moody Church ought to be much more familiar than it is with its genesis. The few historical sketches of the church found here and there are necessarily so brief, so fragmentary and incomplete as to be little more than misleading. It is no marvel that Christian men and women outside our flock should be interested to know our relationship to the churches about us. Our own membership should be able without confusion to give intelligently this information. D.L. Moody in his mature years was without … Read More >


Harry Ironside

Life Story – Harry Ironside Never formally ordained, to many he’s the unofficial archbishop of American fundamentalism. With no classroom education beyond grammar school, he’s considered one of the leading biblical scholars of this generation—holds a doctor of literature degree from the largest liberal arts college in Illinois—and is the author of more than 40 wide-selling books and commentaries. With no previous pastoral experience, he stepped into the largest fundamental pulpit in the U.S., and for 14 years he has filled the vast auditorium as no other man can, with only two Sundays in that period passing without at … Read More >


The Past Of The Moody Church

Dr. Dixon prefaced his sermon by reading the following Articles of Faith from the constitution of the church: We believe in the only true God (John 17:3); the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19). Who created all things (Revelation 4:11) and upholds all things by the power (Hebrews 1:3), in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). A God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he (Deuteronomy 32:4), and he shall judge the world (Psalm 9:8). We believe all Scripture is given by … Read More >


The Life Story Of Rev. Paul Rader As Related In His Own Language

Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, … but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the Gospel according to the power of God; who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (2 Timothy 1:8, 9). Early Conversion Written very clearly upon my mind is the memory of the night I was converted when a boy of nine years. My father was then a Methodist missionary in Cheyenne … Read More >
