Tom, I found a couple of places in his sermons where Spurgeon says the church needs to be reformed but I also found a place where he says that the Baptist church never had an alliance with Rome and has never needed to be reformed. So there are some Baptist and I think Spurgeon who believe that Calvinistic Baptist's were never part of the Reformation but received the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (Jude 1:3)

Quote
“The images are first to be burned, then sinful customs are to be given up,
and after that let the church be reformed.”

“Begin, O soldiers of Christ, to be more true to your colors,
and as surely as the time shall come when the church shall thus
be reformed and revived, to surely shall the King come into our midst,
and we shall march on to certain victory, trampling down our enemies,
and getting to our King many crowns, through many victories achieved.”

“The Christian Church, and especially that Church of which we are still members,
which has never defiled its garments, but which, never having had any alliance with the
Church of Rome, has never needed to be reformed, — that Church under
its different names, Paulitians, Novations, Albigenses, Lollards,
Wyckliffites, Anabaptists, Baptists, has always suffered.”


Gill on the other hand condemned reformed churches with a sermon entitled “INFANT BAPTISM: A PART & PILLAR OF POPERY” so to him and probably a lot of people back then the word “REFORMED” referred to churches that practiced infant baptism. Also I think Gill used and wrote the “Goat Yard Confession”. What Reformed means today that is a different story.

Thanks Bill
