/* History */
Calvinism spread to different parts of the world, most notably the [[USA]] and [[South Africa]] The English [[Puritans]] and Scottish [[Presbyterian]]s, as well as smaller numbers of [[German]] and [[Dutch]] immigrants brought Calvinism to the United States in the 17th and 18th centuries. Large numbers of Dutch, Germans and [[French]] [[Huguenots]] also brought their Calvinist faith to South Africa in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
In the United States Calvinism is found within the [[Presbyterian]] and Reformed [[Baptist]] groups; the two differ in regards to baptism (Presbyterians hold to infant baptism by sprinkling, while Reformed Baptists hold to immersion baptism after salvation).
