HISTORY OF WILLIAM WILBERFORCE

Near the end of the 18th century, a young British parliamentarian named William Wilberforce, along with a small group of friends took on the impossible, the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire… and they turned their world upside down!

So, how did they do it?

These “friends” shared a common bond, their faith in Jesus Christ and their corporate sense of calling to “preach the gospel” in every arena of life, be it social or political, and to influence their world and even radically transform it through their steadfast commitment to the cause.

Though they were of diverse denominational backgrounds, they were unified in their common faith in Jesus Christ and driven by their common passion to pursue His purposes for their lives in their generation.

And now the time has come to sound the call once again. Those who profess their faith in Jesus Christ, who share the same sense of urgency for this nation’s spiritual and moral well-being, must look past minor differences and come together for such a time as this!
