The Man Behind the Vision

A beloved pastor, author, political activist, evangelical leader, family man, and founder of Liberty University, Dr. Jerry Falwell was a man whose faith in God fueled a vision that continues to be realized in extraordinary ways. 

Since opening on Dr. Falwell’s 70th birthday in 2003, the Jerry Falwell Museum has continued to grow its collection of memorabilia about Liberty’s founder with donations from family, alumni, and friends from around the world.

The museum also houses a library of Falwell’s writings, including books and personal letters.

“Faith is believing what God says in spite of circumstances. Faith is simply taking God at His Word.”

– Dr. Jerry Falwell
