I would fall somewhere here: 1.) Calvin and Owen, are mild cessationists
. They hold miraculous gifts to have ceased in the sense that they are no longer normative for the church, but they do allow for them at various times and in various contexts. For example, in The Institutes, Calvin allows for prophecy and apostleship as the need of the times demands, especially when the gospel is penetrating new cultures.
2.) Luther, John Knox (leader of the reformation in Scotland), and Samuel Rutherford (a framer of the Westminster Confession), are continuationists
, in that they affirmed the continuing function of miraculous spiritual gifts for the church in their doctrine and practice.
