Welcome to BelieveTheSign
The comprehensive encyclopedia on the life and message of William Branham.
635 articles
In the days of his prominence, the 1950's, what Spirit-filled believer did not know [William Branham's] name?
Yet today, we may wonder, what believer does?

Robert Price in Douglas Weaver's The Healer-Prophet: William Marrion Branham
William Branham

William Marrion Branham's healing ministry skyrocketed him from a rural pastor to an international evangelist in the late 1940's. However, his visions and doctrine became increasingly controversial until his death 50 years ago on December 24, 1965.

Views on William Branham's legacy can be grouped into the following main categories:

  1. Most Christians have never heard of William Branham and have no idea he even has a legacy.
  2. Some older Pentecostals and "charismatic" Christians view him as a great evangelist and gifted healer who strayed from Christian orthodoxy in the latter stages of his ministry. They believe this is the reason for his obscurity today.
  3. His followers (estimated at between 500,000 and 1,000,000 people) believe him to be Elijah the Prophet, the fulfillment of Malachi 4:5. There are many different sects within William Branham's followers, although they all refer to themselves as believers of the Message of the Hour. Some of his followers believe that William Branham's every word was infallible, while others will admit that he did make some minor errors but he was infallible with respect to his visions, prophecies and his interpretation of the Bible.
  4. Some, as a result of facts coming out of research by us and other former message followers, view William Branham as a charlatan who was either willfully deceptive, or had untreated mental health issues.

The purpose of this website is to provide independent, objective, comprehensive information on William Branham and to ask questions about the facts that we have discovered. At one time this website was not objective in our approach and for that we humbly apologize to our readers. Click on the links below to go to our detailed articles on a variety of subjects related to his life and ministry, his claims, the beliefs of his followers, and the criticisms of his detractors.

We do not ask you to trust the evidence that we have presented BUT, we have tried to provide footnotes and reference sources from where we obtained the evidence so that it can be confirmed independently. Look at the evidence, verify it, and try to answer the questions that we have raised.
