Death of the Rev Dr Billy Graham – statement from the President of the Methodist Church in Ireland

February 21, 2018
The Rev Dr Laurence Graham, President of the Methodist Church in Ireland, on hearing of the death of the Rev Dr Billy Graham issued the following on behalf of the Methodist Church in Ireland:
 
‘Along with Christians around the world, the members of the Methodist Church in Ireland are saddened to hear of the death of Dr Billy Graham. We offer our prayers and sympathy to his family and many close friends. 

‘Through his ministry many of our members came to faith in the Lord Jesus and we firmly believe that Dr Graham will have been received by our Lord with the words, “Well done good and faithful servant.”  

‘The founder of Methodism, the Rev John Wesley, once declared “The World is my Parish” and this has been true for Dr Graham. He went to the four corners of the earth to share his Christian faith and so from shore to shore many will have had reason to thank God for his ministry. 

‘In the exercise of this ministry Dr Graham co-operated with all branches of the Christian Church. 

As he once remarked that when people hear that he is dead, he would remind them that he has simply gone to a new heavenly address.’
