Default Is David Jerimiah a Calvinist?

I heard he was but I can't really find anything on the net that backs that up?

Yes.
But I don't think he holds to the Doctrines of Grace.

Yes, I heard him preach a sermon on cassette on the very subject. It was a good sermon.

Don't know about him being a calvinist but I know he's no Baptist.

He's an excellent expositor of the Word. That's good enough for me.

He does declare his church as being baptist and cites the baptist distinctives. I think he has an open membership, but does teach baptism by immersion as a step of obedience.

On Calvinism, he is one of those baptist preachers who does not declare himself one way or the other, but indeed holds to many of the doctrines. He is typical of many who believe foreknowledge is the key to predestination, as do many baptists. He is premil-dispensational, if that means anything.

I think he does an excellent job of preaching the word from what I have heard and read.

Cheers,

Jim

He's a Baptist out-and-out and is a moderate calvinist (about 4 points instead of all 5).

That's from my evaluation only and I might be mistaken.

Not to put Dr. Jeremiah down, but among non-PB's, really, I enjoy the Scotsman over in Ohio more.
Dr. Jeremiah can give very moving and interesting illustrations of his points, but the Scotsman in Ohio has a terrific timing for humor.

I am not trying to discredit Dr. Jeremiah either however a number of years ago, maybe 11 or so when he was in the process of changing the name of his church he told me it was to get rid of the stigma that is associated with the name, Baptist. Than't why I said he is no Baptist.
