1000 Souls Saved At Franklin Graham’s London Outreach

1000 Souls Saved At Franklin Graham’s London Outreach: Over 10,000 people attended the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association’s “God Loves You” tour event in London on Saturday, where evangelist Franklin Graham gave a gospel message.

Graham, the son of the well-known evangelist Billy Graham and BGEA president, held the outreach on Saturday at the ExCel complex in London. BGEA collaborated with over 1,000 churches in the London area, and tens of thousands of people watched the event broadcast.

The event was a continuation of Graham’s God Loves You tour, which began in the United Kingdom last year after some early pushback.

Worship was led by contemporary Christian singers CeCe Winans, Michael W. Smith, and the Newsboys prior to Graham’s presentation. According to information provided to The Christian Post by the BGEA, approximately 1,000 people professed their faith.

“I want to say a few words to you tonight because I believe there are people here who have hurting hearts. A lot of people here have been searching and looking and trying to find purpose in what their lives are all about,” Graham said to the crowd.

“I’m here to say this to you tonight—God loves you! He loves you, and He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, from heaven to this earth to save you from your sins.”

Graham stressed that all people are sinners and all “are guilty.”

“But if you are willing to repent and turn from your sins and by faith, lean on the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, tonight, God will forgive you, cleanse you, and heal you. But you have to come to Him through Christ.”

Earlier this month, the BGEA announced the addition of two stops on the God Loves You tour in the U.K., including Saturday’s show at the ExCeL London convention center and a June 22, 2024, show at the OVO Hydro arena in Glasgow, Scotland.

“We are excited to return to London again this year and to have an opportunity to preach the gospel in Glasgow,” said Graham in a statement shared with CP in early August.

“We are grateful for the thousands of Christians and hundreds of churches that have stood alongside us in recent years and continued praying for this tour to come to their cities.”

Franklin Graham’s tour of the UK saw hundreds of people turn to Jesus Christ in Liverpool, South Wales, Sheffield, and London last year. However, he faced resistance from LGBT activist groups and venue hosts over his views on homosexuality and Islam.

In 2020, a Scottish court ruled that Scottish Event Campus Limited violated the U.K. Equality Act by canceling the BGEA events and ordering them to pay over $111,000 in damages.
