As a boy of 15 he professed faith in Christ as a result of the earnest preaching of the local pastor. He emigrated to the USA in 1914 where he graduated from Moody Bible Institute and afterwards studied at Wheaton College where he acquired a working knowledge of Greek. During his student days he was greatly influenced by the ministry of Mr Alfred Mace in Chicago and after a time of deep conviction he was received into fellowship with a local assembly in the city. He arrived in India as a missionary in 1920 commencing work in Bangalore, later moving to Trichur in Kerala state where he and his wife served the Lord for 40 years. He mastered the Malayalam language in such a way that hundreds came to his meetings simply to hear a foreigner speaking fluently in the local language. Mr and Mrs Davies were much involved in developing the orphanage at Trichur which still continues today. Mr Davies also moved widely in the major cities of India engaged in Bible teaching. He took an uncompromising stand for the truth which he held dear. Mr T.G. Samuel was one of a number of Indian brethren associated with Mr Davies. Together they visited many villages in Andhra Pradesh. Also among his fellow labourers were Mr Handley Bird, Mr Silas Fox, Mr A Naismith and many others. Mr Davies also had periods of profitable ministry in Colombo, Sri Lanka. In the mid nineteen sixties he began to move in a teaching ministry in many parts of the English speaking world. After his re-marriage the couple lived in a Vancouver suburb, Mr Davies having by then ceased from active work and travels. He was called into the Lord's presence in 1990 at the age of 95.
