EVANGELICAL SOCIETY OF GENEVA (SOCIÉTÉ ÉVANGELIQUE DE GENÉVE): The oldest of the Continental Evangelical societies; founded in 1831 for the diffusion of sound doctrine throughout Switzerland and France. It has a theological school at Geneva, supports numerous missionaries, pastors, and colporteurs, and is dependent upon voluntary contributions derived not only from Switzerland, but also from other parts of Europe and even from the United States, which produce an annual income of about 260,000 francs. It is undenominational, having as its confession of faith substantially the creed of the Evangelical Alliance (q.v.). It is the product of the revival attending the labors of Robert Haldane (see HALDANE, JAMES ALEXANDER, AND ROBERT).
