    Is anyone here either a Reformed Baptist, or know of any Reformed Baptists, living in ND? I already know that there are no Reformed Baptist churches in the state. I am also familiar with all of the Founders friendly churches here.

    Sean,

    First, looking briefly at the term 'reformed', in one sense it refers to those doctrines which were rediscovered during the Protestant Reformation which emphasized the grace of God in salvation rather than the works of man.

    Looking briefly through Church history we see that the common link, or set of beliefs, that were held to by the major Protestant Reformation leaders, the Puritans, the Pilgrims, and the Christian leaders during the Great Awakening were these same Reformed beliefs.

    Some of those people who held to these beliefs that were also Baptists, hence the modern term 'Reformed Baptists', were:

    1. John Bunyan, who wrote the best-selling book of all time next to the Bible.

    2. William Carey, who was the 'father of the modern missionary movement'.

    3. Adoniram Judson, who was America's first Protestant missionary.

    4. Charles Spurgeon, who was called 'the prince of preachers'.
