JESSE MERCER INDEX PAGE


     Jesse Mercer, D.D., was the most distinguished and influential Baptist minister ever reared in the State of Georgia; and it is doubtful if anyone, under the providence of God, ever exerted a more beneficial influence among the Baptists of Georgia, or as an instrument in the divine hands ever accomplished more beneficial results for the denomination in the State. - The Baptist Encyclopedia
     Some regarded him hyper-Calvinistic in his system of doctrine, but he loved Andrew Fuller more than John Calvin, and followed the Bible more than either. - Annals of the American Baptist Pulpit
