Philpot J C

Joseph Charles Philpot (1802 - 1869) was educated at Worcester College, Oxford, graduating with a first in Classics, and was later elected a Fellow of the college. After a spell as a private tutor, he was called by grace and entered the ministry of the Church of England. Through contact with William Tiptaft, a fellow evangelical cleric, a work of grace deepened in his soul and he became persuaded of the doctrines of free and sovereign grace. The forms and worldliness of the Church of England grated upon him, and in 1835 he seceded from it, a short time after Tiptaft. Convinced of the scriptural correctness of believer's baptism, he joined the Particular Baptists, being baptised on his 33rd birthday by John Warburton. He became joint-pastor of the chapels at Stamford and Oakham in 1838 until 1864, when ill health obliged him to retire. Whilst at Stamford he became involved with William Gadsby in editing the new Gospel Standard magazine, for which he was exceptionally equipped. His editorials, book reviews, articles and meditations in these pages are valuable for doctrinal teaching. He contended earnestly for an experimental knowledge of the truth, and was sharp to distinguish between natural faith and spiritual faith. His desire was always to exercise a discriminating ministry, to 'take forth the precious from the vile'. His sermons are still available in 14 volumes of his 'Gospel Pulpit'. Also look out for his masterly defence of the 'Eternal Sonship' of Christ, amongst others on our booklist.
