Albert Hull – Pugwash Conference gospel message (25 min)

In 2002, in the big Tent in Pugwash Junction conference in Nova Scotia, Canada, Albert Hull (1936-2015) preached the gospel powerfully, majoring on the theme of “the precious blood of Christ”. He read 4 scriptures and heralded the gospel to those who are “without strength” (Rom 5:6), “without excuse” (Rom 1:20), who will die “without mercy” (Heb 10:28-29), unless the are saved through the precious blood of Christ, for “without the shedding of blood” is no remission of sins (Heb…

Albert Joyce – “Come unto Me or Depart from Me” (14 min)

This recording, made in 1956 at a Bible Conference gospel meeting in Vancouver, Canada, features the voice of the late esteemed evangelist Albert Joyce (1897-1982). Mr Joyce was saved in May 1905, in Portobello, near Edinburgh, Scotland.

How could I believe any differently?” Turning to Isaiah 53:5 and 6 he said,…

Fred Whitmore – “Lost in Sight of Home” (3 min)

Fred Whitmore (1903-1980) often visited us in Bicester for gospel preaching and Bible teaching.

He was mightily used in gospel preaching in his 20’s and was instrumental in seeing a number of assemblies established, including Ossett in 1926 and Skelmanthorpe in 1927.

Harold Paisley – What Shall I Do With Jesus? (34 min)

Harold Paisley (1924-2015) preaches on the haunting question of Pontius Pilate: “What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ?” (The photo above is of The Pilate Stone, held in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem). This is a question you cannot avoid: what will you do – receive or reject the Son of God? Preaching in a Gospel Tent many years ago, this is Mr Paisley in full flow, telling out the same gospel that so radically changed his…

Not Far from the Kingdom (51 min)

In 1983, Sydney Maxwell (1919-1993) and Harold Paisley (1924-2015) shared a very large Sunday night gospel meeting in a public meeting hall in the town of Larne, Northern Ireland, during the annual conference meetings there. Their messages paralleled one another as they both spoke about being “near the kingdom” and warned their audience that it’s not enough to know all about the blessings of salvation and heaven – if you end up remaining “outside the door”. It was a solemn,…

David Craig – Christ the Only Foundation (37 min)

David Craig (1902-1977), affectionately known as “Scotch Davey”, was a gifted earnest evangelist, Bible teacher and author. He travelled the length and breadth of the UK serving the Lord, as well as making numerous trips abroad preaching the Word. During the Belfast Easter Conference in April 1969, before a large crowd in the Grosvenor Hall (Photographs below), David Craig preached the gospel. Falling ill before the conference, Mr Craig anticipated not being able to fulfill the engagement, but the Lord…

Oliver Smith – “Two Whosoevers” (6 min)

In 1957, at the age of 74, three years before his homecall, Oliver Smith (1883-1960) rose to his feet at the Manchester Conference (Iowa, USA) and preached the gospel for six and a half minutes on “two whosoevers”, from John 3:16 and Rev 20:15. Mr Smith, “unknown yet well known”, was not a flowery orator. Indeed, he was often accused of “murdering the King’s English”. Yet he was a uniquely effective and tireless labourer in the gospel who saw many…

Albert Hull – “One Unique Unrivalled Man” (22 min)

Albert Hull (1936-2015) preached the gospel and taught the truth of God for several decades mainly in Nova Scotia and other parts of Canada and North America. He was a warm-hearted, earnest and much loved servant of the Lord, who was never happier than when he was preaching the gospel of Christ to perishing sinners. Here he is, just 2 years before his homecall, preaching the gospel to a large audience at the “Island Conference” (in Prince Edward Island, Canada)…
