Samuel Chadwick

Samuel Chadwick was born in the industrialized north of England in 1840 into a devout Methodist family. His father worked in a cotton mill; at the age of 8, Samuel joined him, working 12-hour shifts. At the age of 21, he became a lay pastor at Stacksteads in Lancashire.

After a major awakening and deepening of his faith in his late twenties via a personal epiphany in which he burned all his early sermons, he moved on to larger congregations and greater popularity, ending his career as Principal of Cliff College, a Methodist lay training centre.

Chadwick began lecturing weekly at Cliff College in 1904, commuting from Leeds. In 1907, he was appointed to a faculty position as a biblical and theological tutor. Although he was doing mission work in the South Yorkshire coal fields when the principal of Cliff died in 1912, he immediately returned to the school and was formally appointed principal himself in 1913. Famed outdoor evangelist Leonard Ravenhill was educated at Cliff College during Chadwick's tenure.

At Cliff, Chadwick wrote The Way to Pentecost, which went to print as he was dying in 1932. He also wrote The Call to Christian Perfection. Chadwick's works have been reprinted often since his death, and continue to be reprinted in new editions under various titles for modern study.

The Gift Of The Holy Spirit

The sphere of the Holy Spirit is in the Living Temple of sanctified humanity. He dwells not in temples made with hands. The Temple at Jerusalem was a permitted mistake, as surely as the kingship of Israel. In the New Jerusalem there is no Temple. The Tabernacle was a type of heavenly realities. The ... Read More
