Early Evangelicalism

Henry Alline

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents excerpts from Henry Alline's A Sermon, Preached at Fort-Midway: On the 19th of February, 1783. Alline was the foremost revivalist in Canada and made a significant contribution to early evangelicalism there. His itinerate preaching in the 1770s and 1780s initiated a series of revivals in Nova Scotia that spilled over into northern New England. As an evangelist, Alline consistently stressed the need for the new birth. Alline rejected the notion that individuals were predestined to heaven or hell, and instead told his listeners that they had the power to choose to follow or reject Christ and would be held accountable for their decisions. His Sermon, Preached at Fort-Midway was published shortly before his death in 1784. In this sermon, Alline confirms his belief that everyone has the ability to turn from sin and seek eternal salvation.
