In 1855 Spurgeon reprinted the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith – the Confession which belongs to the same family as the Westminster Confession – and when the Metropolitan Tabernacle was being built in 1859 he had a copy placed under the foundation stone.

In 1866 Spurgeon said, “The fashion is to laugh at this book [the 1689], and to say it is out of date, and so on. Well, I should like to see someone write a better summary of Scripture doctrine.”
