The Nicole Institute of Baptist Studies

The Spurgeon Lecture Series

In addition to the great line-up of classes being offered, The Nicole Institute of Baptist Studies will also sponsor an important biennial practical and theological series known as The Spurgeon Lecture Series. Charles Spurgeon is a well-known Reformed English Baptist of the 19th century who is still widely read and influential.

"We have come to a turning point in the road. If we turn to the right mayhap our children and our children’s children will go that way; but if we turn to the left, generations yet unborn will curse our names for having been unfaithful to God and to His Word.” — Charles H. Spurgeon
