____________________________

Baptists in the South, rapidly rising
to challenge Methodists numerically,
helped align Southern religion
with the South's black slave culture.
The birth of the Southern Baptist
Convention in 1845, formed in order
to preserve God's will for the African
race, signaled the inevitability of war.

Baptists at the local church and
associational level responded in a
myriad of ways to the Confederacy.
Patterns locally and associationally
emerged and evolved as the war
progressed, while differences
between Southern and Primitive
Baptists stood out.
