One Quaker 3

In 1652 England, a movement for the restoration of New Testament Christianity began with the founding of the Religious Society of Friends.

George Fox was a young man seeking after truth and not finding it among the churches at that time. Fox belongs among those spiritual leaders who sought to restore the church rather than reform it. This established the restoration of the truth found in the apostolic doctrines of the early church.

Soon Fox was joined by many others who had been seekers and had now come into the Light of Christ. Among the early Quakers were notable names such as William Penn and Robert Barclay. The original Christian gospel as taught by Christ and His apostles was now being preached all over England and beyond by a group of young men and women who have been called The Valiant Sixty.

The name Friends is taken from John 15:15 “I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” They were given the nickname of Quakers, as they trembled under the power of the Holy Spirit when they preached.

Quakers are still found all over the world with the majority of them living in Kenya.
