Charles Spurgeon was a British Particular Baptist preacher who became famously known as “The Prince of Preachers”. Spurgeon was the pastor of the New Park Street Chapel in London for 38 years and has remained a big influence today on Christians of many different denominations.
Spurgeon was a key part of the Reformed Baptist Tradition and defended the Church as part of the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith. Spurgeon converted at the age of 16 and just 4 years later became pastor of the New Park Street Chapel. Popular from the start, Spurgeon often gave sermons to audiences of more than 10,000 people. Spurgeon was a prolific writer of sermons, devotionals, commentaries and prayer books, many of which were published. Spurgeon’s “magnum opus” was The Treasury of David which was published over the course of 20 years in the Metropolitan Tabernacle’s periodical, The Sword and the Trowel. During his lifetime Spurgeon started a charity organization and founded a pastor’s college, which was renamed Spurgeon’s College after his death.
