Charles Spurgeon

Spurgeon preaching in Surrey Music Hall, which became too small to
hold the crowds that came to hear his preaching.

The Prince of Preachers

Charles Spurgeon lived during the late 1800's (1834 - 1892). He was a English Baptist preacher known for his plain English, his powerful preaching, his defense of the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith, and his opposition to the liberal and pragmatic tendencies springing up in the churches of his day, just as they are once again doing today.

Spurgeon was a prolific writer, in addition many of his sermons were transcribed as he preached them. His powerful sermons were penetrating and based on precise Biblical exposition. His oratory skills were such that he held his listeners in the Metropolitan Tabernacle spellbound. Many Christians have found Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in all of Christian literature.

Spurgeon frequently preached to audiences numbering more than 10,000. He began preaching when he was 20. His congregation quickly grew, outgrowing the church building, then Exeter Hall, then the Surrey Music Hall, and finally a new building was constructed, the Metropolitan Tabernacle.
