Overview

Hudson Taylor gave his life up to be a footnote in God’s story of worldwide redemption. He first arrived in China in the spring of 1854 and founded the China Inland Mission in 1865. In total Taylor spent 51 years preaching and teaching in China. In contrast to other missionaries of the time who also brought a gospel of Western culture, Taylor immersed himself in Chinese culture. He wore Chinese clothes, ate Chinese food, and wrote and spoke in several Chinese dialects. 150 years later, thanks in no small part to one willing middle-class Englishman, there are as many evangelical Christians in China as there are in America.

About Hudson Taylor Taylor

Hudson Taylor (1832–1905) was one of the most important missionaries of the nineteenth-century. He studied medicine as a youth and, in 1853, he offered himself as the first missionary of the Chinese Evangelisation Society. He first travelled to China at the age of 21. He was poorly received by the people he preached to in Shanghai, until he decided to adopt native Chinese clothes and the queue hairstyle. In 1857 he cut ties with the Chinese Evangelisation Society and began working independently. He married Maria Jane Dyer, a fellow missionary, in 1858. In 1860, Taylor and his family returned in England where he regrouped and, in 1865, founded the non-denominational China Inland Mission. In 1866, Taylor returned to the field with the largest missionary party ever sent to China, emphasizing immersion in Chinese culture. After more than 50 years of service in China, in 1905, Hudson Taylor died at his home in the Hunan province of China.
