150th Anniversary of War Between Americans, 1861-1865: God’s Judgment upon both North and South for National Sin of Unbiblical American Slavery – Part 2

Part 2 – Baptist Church Splits over Slavery: 1845

1845 – The Southern Baptist Convention is formed, splitting from the Baptist Triennial Convention.

Southern Baptist Beginnings
The Southern Baptist Convention Organized

[ emphasis added ]

In 1844, Georgia Baptists asked the Home Mission Society to appoint a slaveholder to be a missionary in Georgia. After much discussion, the appointment was declined. A few months later, the Alabama Baptist Convention asked the Foreign Mission Society if they would appoint a slaveholder as a missionary. When the society said no, Virginia Baptists called for Baptists of the South to meet at Augusta, Georgia, in early May, 1845, for the purpose of consulting “on the best means of promoting the Foreign Mission cause, and other interests of the Baptist denomination in the South.”

Thus, on May 8, 1845, about 293 Baptist leaders of the South gathered at the First Baptist Church, Augusta, Georgia, representing over 365,000 Baptists. They concluded, with expressions of regret from their own leaders and from distinguished northern Baptist leaders,that more could be accomplished in Christian work by the organization in the South of a separate Baptist body for missionary work. The Methodists in the South had already separated over the issue of slavery, and southern Presbyterians would do so later.
