Sovereign Grace Baptists

Sovereign Grace Baptists in the broadest sense are any “Calvinistic” Baptists that accept God’s sovereign grace in salvation and predestination, including Primitive Baptists, Reformed Baptists, Continental Baptist Churches (org. 1983) and Strict Baptists. Certain churches and groups have preferred “Sovereign Grace” in their name, especially those who dislike the terms “Calvinism” and “Calvinist”. Yet all of these generally agree with the Five Points of Calvinism – Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints. Evangelist Rolfe P. Barnard (1904-1969), Pastor Henry Mahan, and the Sovereign Grace Bible Conference in Ashland, Kentucky were pioneers in the resurgence of Calvinism among Baptists in the United States, though all groups designated as Sovereign Grace are not necessarily connected to them.
