Martin Luther King Jr. may be most remembered for his activism in civil rights, but his life was also defined by his call to be a minister.

Many of the quotes that are remembered today from this Nobel Peace Prize winner were originally part of sermons.

Here are six memorable quotes from King about God, heaven and the Christian beliefs that sustained him:

“It is cheerful to God when you rejoice or laugh from the bottom of your heart.” – Goodreads

“A religion true to its nature must...be concerned about man's social conditions. Religion deals with both earth and heaven, both time and eternity. Religion operates not only on the vertical plane but also on the horizontal. It seeks not only to integrate men with God but to integrate men with men and each man with himself.” – From King’s book “Stride Toward Freedom”

“Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”

“I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountain. And I've looked over, and I've seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.” – From King’s speech “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” which American Rhetoric ranked as one of the top 100 American speeches.  

“The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.” – King paraphrased this from Dante’s “Divine Comedy,” which said, “
The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis.” 

“Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.” – From a compilation of King’s sermons “Strength to Love.”
