The Life and Ministry Of Frank Grimwood
The congregation meeting at Bethesda Chapel, Notting Hill Gate, London, was organized in 1866 around the teachings of the Strict and Particular Baptists. The first pastor, Mr. David Crumpton, served the office for six years, during which time he partnered with Mr. John Hazelton when organizing the Metropolitan Association of Strict Baptist Churches. Four more pastors followed before the turn of the century, leaving the office vacant between the years 1898-1907. It was then Mr. Frank Grimwood was appointed the pastor, serving the office for twenty-one years. In the year 1900, seven years before taking the oversight of Bethesda Chapel, Mr. Micthell, on behalf of the Earthen Vessel, requested Mr. Grimwood submit a short testimony of his life and ministry. This background may be of…
Study 3: Open And Secret Rebellion (1:18-3:18)
This study considers the first main section of Paul's letter to the church at Rome. In his answer to the question, Why are sinners under the condemnation of God, the apostle distinguishes between the Jews and the Gentiles, showing why both groups are under God's wrath.

Gathered Fragments On The Life And Ministry Of John Hazelton
In an attempt to provide a helpful introduction to the life and ministry of John Hazelton, I have selected and collated several articles from various editions of the Earthen Vessel, the result of which I hope will prove a blessing to the reader interested in the testimonies of Christ’s ambassadors.

Some of…
Study 2: Greetings, Brethren (1:1-17)
This study considers the introduction of Paul's letter to the church at Rome. The first seventeen verses of chapter one are examined in light of the Framework of Sovereign Grace.
A Very Strange Sound In Our Ears
Strange things I've heard Reformed Baptists say: "We must believe like John Calvin, but evangelize like James Arminius!" "If it were not for Paedobaptism, I would be a Presbyterian!" "A church is at high risk of pastoral dictatorship unless more than one pastor is appointed." "Christians need the church like babies need milk...it is their nourishment for life." "Hyper-calvinists have no urgency to preach the gospel to dying sinners," said one while spending a day visiting with me in the sitting room, instead of urgently preaching the gospel to my neigbors. "It is the unbeliever's duty to believe on Christ, and the believer's duty to obey the [moral] law!" "God wants you to come to Christ; the only thing keeping you from salvation is your…
