    I heard something about a movement called the sovereign grace movement. Does anybody know anything about it? What I was told it is calvinistic mixed with some charismatic stuff. I was wondering if anybody had any information on it? I've heard some baptist churches are going with it, but don't know much about it. My pastor was saying something to me about it and I said I would do some research.

    Thanks, If heard of this here before.that was my confusion because I know what sovereign grace baptists were. I found out what was going on. It isn't any "movement" but a place called Sovereign Grace Ministries where are reformed and charismatics. A church was using some of the music they made and somebody got the bight idea that the church believed like they did. Basically, it was a rumor that i needed to find info out on. Like I figured, it was silly. Thanks for you help.

    To clarify, Sovereign Grace Ministries is a reformed charismatic group headed up by C J Mahaney in Gaithersburg, MD who is the former pastor of Covenant Life Church.

    Sovereign Grace Baptists are a different group. They are reformed Baptists, but I don't think they have much if any charismatic influence.
