The Queen's faith

Salvationist magazine looks back on how Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II testified to being a follower of Jesus.

Beyond Queen Elizabeth II’s title as ‘Defender of the Faith’ and her role as head of the Church of England, the Queen was well known for her strong personal faith, which she spoke about with ease and genuine affection.

The following quotes are from various speeches and Christmas Day messages, and capture something of her faith.

On kindness

On trust

On salvation

On love

On serving

On comfort
