He planned to become a lawyer, but God had another idea.
…after years of honest questioning, Charles finally found peace with God.
Charles Finney had no interest in spiritual things—until he began studying the bible to better understand certain references in his law books. Then on Oct. 10, 1821, after years of honest questioning, Charles finally found peace with God.
…revivals throughout the northeastern United States…tens of thousands of conversions.
From that day forward, Finney’s life was devoted to telling others about Jesus Christ. He was the first evangelist to popularize public invitations, to place an emphasis on personal decisions for Christ, and to encourage counseling for both new converts and those seeking God. His powerful sermons led to revivals throughout the northeastern United States and resulted in tens of thousands of conversions.
