Mary Elizabeth Baxter

Choose a new font size and typeface

Mary Elizabeth Foster Baxter (1837-1926) was born and raised in Worcestershire England. At the age of twenty–one she responded to a clear presentation of the gospel and shortly thereafter became involved in evangelistic ministry. She was married to Michael P. Baxter in 1868 and together they raised one son, Michael Paget Baxter. England and much of Europe were influenced for the cause of Christ, through the Baxter’s selfless service. They eventually founded Bethshan House, a refuge for the sick of body and soul. Mary and her husband were mentored by spiritual leaders like Andrew Murray and D. L. Moody, to name a few.

Among Mary Baxter’s many talents was a profound love of writing. She held the position co–editor of the “Christian Herald” in London and authored many books, including The Women in the Word, as well as articles, and Bible studies. In response to the command to be “a witness…unto the ends of the earth,” Mary took a world tour with her pastor and his wife. During this journey she suffered from a violent form of neuralgia, which Mary recognized as God’s way of bringing about humility and an end to her self–will. Mrs. Baxter wanted her life’s testimony to be summed up by the statement: “God is faithful.”
