D.S. Warner (1842 - 1895)
Read freely text sermons and articles by the speaker D.S. Warner in text and pdf format. Daniel Sydney Warner is known primarily as a church reformer and one of the founders  of the Church of God (Anderson) and other similar church groups. He is also known for some of his songs which other church groups have incorporated into their hymnody. He is mostly known by only the initials of his given and middle name, D. S. Warner, which was typical for his time period.
On April 22, 1881, Warner "came out" of all holiness associations, saying, "We were positively denied membership [in any holiness association] on the ground of not adhering to any sect. And now we wish to announce to all that we wish to cooperate with all Christians, as such, in saving souls—but forever withdraw from all organisms that uphold and endorse sects and denominations in the body of Christ." "Anti-sectarianism" would become a watchword for his followers for many years afterward. His detractors would call his movement, the "come-outers".

Faith Healing - an Important Factor in Soul Saving

Has plucked our tender bud;

Gathered to the King of Peace?

And abundance of His grace?

And I’ve seen the darkness flying,
Driven by the light of day.
