Remembering Billy Graham

Billy Graham was born on November 7, 1918, and reared on a dairy farm near Charlotte, North Carolina. Mr. Graham often told the story of his “personal commitment to Christ” at age 15 when evangelist Mordecai Ham was a guest speaker in revival meetings in Charlotte.

Billy Graham preached from the Bible to more people in live audiences than anyone in history—215 million people in 185 countries—a household name in every sphere of influence. His voice heard on the “Hour of Decision” radio program for 60 years. Billy Graham said: “Most books are born, live a few short years, then go the way of all the earth; they’re forgotten. But not the Bible!”

Brought to you by Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C.—remembering Billy Graham!

"My legacy, I think, will just be as the Apostle Paul said, in the hearts of the people. I don't think it will be some building or some organization or some place where my name is prominent. I think it's going to be the hearts of people whose lives have been touched or changed as a result of the Gospel that we were able to proclaim.""
