Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Revivals are an integral part of Baptist life. Just as Baptists share key convictions regarding believer's baptism, congregational governance, and religious freedom, they have also widely adopted common practices. Revivals have contributed immensely to the vitality and growth of Baptists worldwide. This volume is a contribution to the theme of Baptist revivals. It explores the central role played by revivalism for Baptist life in the U.S. and Canada, Britain and Continental Europe, and the Majority world. For 250 years, beginning with the Great Awakening in the mid-eighteenth century, and in almost every place they have established churches, Baptists have embraced the practice of revivalism.

Middletown Baptist Church in Monmouth County ("Old First Church" since 1963) is the oldest Baptist congregation in New Jersey and one of the constituting churches of the Philadelphia Baptist Association in 1707. Church meeting minutes, membership rolls, congregational correspondence, and personal letters cover the period 1712 to 1811. The earliest years after the church's founding in 1688 are largely unknown due to discord and subsequent excision of records. Records for the years 1741 to 1785 are incomplete, but transcribed entries from "Elder Mott's Journal" provide a first-hand account of the church's life during that period.

ISBN: 9780881467895
Availability: In stock
Price: $40.00
Baptists historically have shared common beliefs, including believer's baptism, congregational governance, and separation of church and state. This book addresses the question of why Baptists differ in various parts of the world. A central component of the answer lies in part in the variety of cultures where Baptists have planted churches. In order to document the diversities, this study has intentionally sought contributions from Baptist scholars across the world, including Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, and eastern Europe as well as from western Europe and North America where Baptist presence is more common.
