It was a simple idea but one that would have far-reaching consequences. Norris Groves as he was usually called started his adult life as a dentist and then trained to be a missionary with the Church of England before adopting a radically different approach. Ignoring 1, years of Christian history with its accumulated institutions and traditions, Groves proposed to do exactly as the earliest Christians did. In the New Testament itself, he sought to discover the mind of the Lord on matters relating to church and mission.

In he introduced this idea in a small booklet called Christian Devotedness , and he later declared:. My great desire has been to cast myself on the word of God, that every judgment of my soul concerning all things may be right, by being, in all, the mind of God. In Groves gave up his lucrative profession, vacated his large house, and took his wife, Mary, and his three young children to the heart of the Muslim world—Baghdad.

There they looked to their Lord alone to guide and to provide. Determined to live by faith, they sought to follow the instructions they found in Scripture. I gave myself fully to the Lord. Honour, pleasure, money, my physical powers, my mental powers, all was laid down at the feet of Jesus, and I became a great lover of the word of God.

As the Groves family set out for Baghdad in , they left behind a young tutor who had lived with them for two years and greatly admired their faith.

The "simple standard of God's word"

Anthony Norris Groves 1 February — 20 May was an English Protestant missionary and the "father of faith missions ". He launched the first Protestant mission to Arabic-speaking Muslims, and settled in Baghdad, now the capital of Iraq, and later in southern India. His ideas influenced a circle of friends who became leaders in the Plymouth Brethren. The significance of Groves lies in his desire to simplify the task of churches and missions by returning to the methods of Christ and his apostles described in the New Testament. As a missionary, his goal was to help indigenous converts form their own churches without dependence on foreign training, authorisation or finance. His ideas eventually found wide acceptance in evangelical circles.
