Spurgeon on Baptists in the South

“I have not one word of unfriendly criticism to utter against my Baptist brethren beyond the Atlantic. On the contrary, I believe that the Baptists of America are the best Baptists in the world, and that the best Baptists in America are the Baptists of the South. Moreover, if I were to come to America to live, I would join a close communion church and conform myself to its practices on the Communion question.” – Charles H. Spurgeon

From John T. Christian’s 1892 book “Close Communion”, pages 243-244
