Baptist History Preservation Society

“…let them come when they are grown up, let them come when they understand, let them be made Christians when they can know Christ.”–Tertullian, writing against infant baptism in A.D. 200.

The Baptist History tour 2008 will be held May 5th-9th.  The 2008 tour will be in the Midwest with sites including those of Jeremiah Vardemann and Isaac McCoy. 

A word from Bro. Faggart:

The 2007 tour, once again, proved to be a blessing. Forty-six men gathered at the Lehigh Valley Baptist Church in Emmaus, Pennsylvania the morning of May 7th for the five day trip. We enjoyed the best of fellowship and preaching that week while visiting many forgotten Baptist sites. During the tour, the Baptist History Preservation Society unveiled two new memorial markers. 

The first marker was placed at the Pennepack Baptist Church in Philadelphia. Organized in 1688, Pennepack is the oldest Baptist Church in Pennsylvania. The second marker was placed at the Sixth Avenue Baptist Church in Brooklyn, New York, in honor of Robert Lowry. A Baptist pastor, Lowry is best known for composing such hymns as Shall We Gather at the River and Nothing But the Blood of Jesus. These markers were numbers twelve and thirteen placed by the Society. Thanks to all those who helped with these projects.

The Lord willing, our next Baptist History Tour will be May 5th – 9th, 2008. 

Please make plans now to attend.
