This morning the world received sad news of the passing of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham. During his ministry, he shared the Gospel with more people in live audiences than anyone else in history–nearly 215 million people in more than 185 countries and territories, according to Graham’s ministry, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). Additionally, hundreds of millions more have been reached through television, video, film, and webcasts.
"My one purpose in life," he said, "is to help people find a personal relationship with God, which I believe comes through knowing Christ."
Throughout his life, his primary focus was to spread the message of Jesus Christ to the world. For decades he held numerous preaching Crusades in stadiums and sports arenas across the world.
While I never had the opportunity to meet him personally, I have admired his faithfulness and obedience. His ministry has opened many doors to spreading the gospel. We are so thankful for our partnership with Billy Graham ministries over the years.
The NRBTV team sends our deepest condolences to the Graham family. He will be greatly missed, but we are certain heaven is rejoicing today for his homecoming.
