Charles Haddon Spurgeon was not ashamed to be called a Calvinist and was distinctly Reformed in his preaching and teaching. In addition to the Doctrines of Grace, Spurgeon’s teaching also reflected his steadfast belief in the “Five Solas” of the Reformation.
The Five Solas served as the collective rallying cry of the Protestant Reformers. These Latin phrase—Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Solus Christus, and Soli Deo Gloria—tell us that Scripture alone is our highest authority and that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, for God’s glory alone.
These Biblical truths served as theological pillars that supported the whole of Spurgeon’s ministry. The following quotations are but a sampling of what Spurgeon had to say about the Five Solas.
