Charles Grandison Finney was born in 1792 in Connecticut. His parents were not Christians and they raised him for most of his childhood in Oneida County, New York. Finney grew up without a biblical understanding and had no real exposure to Christianity. His first time coming across the preaching of the Word was not a […]
