Brine, John

Brine, John an English Baptist minister, was born at Kettering in 1703. Although placed when quite young in a factory, he devoted his spare hours to reading and study. He became a Christian, and joined the Baptist Church at Kettering, which subsequently gave him a license to preach, and he was, after a time, called to the pastoral charge of the Church at Coventry. After a few years he was called to London, to become the pastor of the Baptist Church worshipping in Currier's Hall, Cripplegate. As a minister in the metropolis he took a prominent stand in all matters pertaining to the prosperity of his denomination during his thirty-five years' residence in London. After a life of great usefulness he died, February 24, 1765. The publications of Mr. Brine were very numerous, consisting largely of Sermons, with a few treatises, the design of which was to vindicate his peculiar tenets. He belongs to the school of divines represented by Gill, and may be termed a High Calvinist. See Wilson, Hist. of Dissenting Churches, 2:574-580. (J.C.S.)
