Spurgeon on becoming a Baptist

He said he became a Baptist because of studying the New Testament in Greek. “According to my reading of Holy Scripture, the believer in Christ should be buried with Him in baptism, and so enter upon his open Christian life.”

Spurgeon’s mother once proclaimed, “Ah, Charles! I often prayed the Lord to make you a Christian, but I never asked that you become a Baptist.”

Spurgeon with a smile responded quickly, “Ah, mother! The Lord has answered your prayer with His usual bounty, and given you exceeding abundantly above what you asked or thought.”

From Spurgeon Gold, page 183.

  1. I love Charles Spurgeon,
    He is so cut and dry, and so full of real passion! His book Lectures to my students is a great book that I have enjoyed. Good practical advice. I love that he was virtually a Holy-Spirit taught man. I heard that he never went to cemetary. Ooops I mean Seminary!

    I am a musician and I would be honored if you would check out my music. All my music is free for download. Anyway, I don’t mean to be a pest, just thought I’d share.

    Thanks,
    -Sean
