Andrew Fuller

Andrew Fuller

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was an eminent Baptist minister, born in Cambridgeshire, and settled at Kettering.

Fuller was a zealous controversialist in defence of the gospel against hyper-Calvinism on the one hand and Socinianism and Sandemanianism on the other, but he is chiefly distinguished in connection with the foundation of the Baptist Missionary Society, to which he for most part devoted the energies of his life.

During his life, Fuller pastored two congregations -- Soham (1775-1782) and Kettering (1782-1815). He died on 7 May 1815 at Kettering, Northamptonshire.
