Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke spoke at Hillsong Church in Sydney on Resurrection Sunday in 2016. "Free Indeed" is a message about the freedom we find through salvation in Jesus Christ.
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke was principally known for his Great Gospel Crusades throughout Africa. The son of a pastor, Reinhard surrendered his life to Christ at age nine, and heard the call to the African mission field before he was a teenager. He attended Bible College in Wales and was ordained in Germany where he and his wife, Anni, pastored a small church until 1967 when, in obedience to his childhood call, they embarked on missionary life in Africa in the small mountain kingdom of Lesotho. When, in 1974, the Holy Spirit spoke to Reinhard in a recurring dream about “a blood-washed Africa,” he founded Christ for All Nations, becoming the inspiring visionary who always spoke of “plundering hell to populate heaven,” a dedicated preacher who saw “signs following” as the necessary evidence of the power of the Gospel to save, heal, and deliver.
Reinhard Bonnke’s passion for the Gospel endured until the day he died. He preached it “in season and out of season,” wherever in the world the door opened to him, but Africa always remained his primary call. He loved to thunder “Africa shall be saved!” and these words still echo wherever the name of Reinhard Bonnke is known.
