Spurgeon the Pastor

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

The Prince of Preachers

Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1834–1892) was a prominent Baptist preacher and theologian from England, known for his compelling sermons, extensive writings, and impactful ministry. Born in Kelvedon, Essex, he became a Christian at the age of 15 and quickly entered the ministry, showing an extraordinary gift for preaching that drew large crowds. By the age of 22, he had become the pastor of London’s famed New Park Street Chapel (later the Metropolitan Tabernacle) where he would preach to thousands weekly for nearly four decades.

Spurgeon’s influence extended well beyond the pulpit; he founded over 60 parachurch organizations and ministries, including a pastors’ college, an orphanage, and a number of charities. His sermons were widely published and remain read to this day, making him one of history’s most published authors. Known as the “Prince of Preachers,” Spurgeon’s theology was rooted in the Reformed tradition, and he was a staunch defender of the inerrancy of the Bible. His enduring legacy continues to shape evangelical thought, and his works are still widely read and referenced in theological studies.
