The First Baptist Church of Raleigh, North Carolina was established on March 8, 1812. Throughout two centuries of existence it has become one of the most prominent Baptist churches in North Carolina and has been a steady presence for the religious community in the city of Raleigh. This book examines the rich, 200-year history of this historic congregation from its inception in 1812 to the present. More than just a simple history of a congregation, the church’s history is recounted within its context, nationally, regionally, and within the broader context of Baptist history. The contextualization of the history of First Baptist Church of Raleigh makes this a unique approach of history from the “bottom up” rather than from the “top down.”
