    This thread was originally started by rlvaughn and has grown considerably. I have edited the thread to remove stray remarks and condense it; all original comments remain in the original thread. Web sites added on the original thread will be transferred here.

    In a related topic on this forum, Baptist Groups, we are discussing the various Baptist groups in the United States. I thought some of you might like some links to some of these groups.

    Baptist General Conference
    Seventh Day Baptist Conference
    Old Regular Baptist
    Sovereign Grace Baptist Association
    Continental Baptist Churches
    North American Baptist Conference
    Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship
    Fundamental Baptist Fellowship
    Independent Baptist Fellowship of North America
    Independent Baptist Fellowship International
    Fundamental Baptist Fellowship Association
    Global Independent Baptist Fellowship
    General Association of General Baptists
    General Association of Separate Baptists
    Primitive Baptists
    New Testament Association of Independent Baptists
    Minnesota Baptist Association
    National Primitive Baptist Convention, Inc.
    National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.
    National Missionary Baptist Convention
    Old Time Missionary Baptists
    American Baptist Association
    Baptist Missionary Association
    General Association of Regular Baptists
    American Baptist Churches in the USA
    National Association of Free Will Baptists
    Baptist Bible Fellowship
    Absolute Predestinarian Baptist
    Eastern District Association
    Gospel Standard Strict Baptists
    Progressive National Baptist Convention
    Old Bethlehem Association of United Baptists
    Old Line Primitive Baptists

    Most of these sights are official sites of the group, but a few of them are not.

    Here is a website concerning our Baptist Heritage. It has information on different Baptist Groups, Historical Societies, Educational Institutions, etc., as well as history and a dictionary. Some parts of the site are still under construction. Check it out; it's very good!

    Bro. Robert

    Here is a wee bit of historical data on the Mountain Union Baptists. One of these days I'm going to write a book on these folks.
    http://www.ls.net/~newriver/nrv/mtnunion.htm

    Here is a small web site I did on the Christian Unity Baptist Association, most of which has merged with the Separate Baptists in Christ.
    http://www.ls.net/~newriver/nrv/cuba.htm

    And for what it is worth, the information on the Regular Baptist web site from Appalachain State University (my alma mater) is not terribly complete or accurate. A better one, IMO is here: http://www.folklife.si.edu/97fest/baptists.htm

    And yet another of interest, you may not have discovered is about one particular No-Hell Primitive Baptist congregation in Carter County, Tennessee at this URL:
    http://www.rootsweb.com/~tnhawkin/Stoneycr.html

    Hope some are a bit helpful.

    Jeff

    Thanks, Tom, for putting up these links. My original intent was to give information on lesser known bodies, so I had deliberately left off the SBC. But I have gradually added many larger groups. I simply overlooked the American Baptist Evangelicals. For those who aren't aware - ABE is an evangelical movement that operates within the ABCUSA.

    Another update: a group that withdrew from the BBFI and was informally known as Heartland Baptist Fellowship adopted an official name at its May 9, 2001 meeting - Global Independent Baptist Fellowship.

    ADDITION - the GIBF minutes link seems to no longer work. Try
    this page

    I have corrected several faulty links in the original post. I have found three groups whose sites are evidently down - Baptist General Conference, Fundamental Baptist Fellowship Association, and Eastern District Primitive Baptist Association. If anyone knows of valid links for these bodies, I would appreciate your posting them. In the meantime, here is the Baptist General Conference of Canada.

    I have found an excellent book "Handbook of Denominations - in the United States" The book was written by Frank S. Mead and then revised by Samuel S. Hill.

    I have also come across a group called the "Continental Baptist Churches" (they are not listed in the book) Has anyone ever heard of this group?

    SaltCityBaptist, the Continental Baptist Churches is a very small association of sovereign grace Baptist churches that adhere to the 1644 London Confession. I have a link in the first post, but it appears their official site is no longer operational. KINDRED MINDS is a theological newsletter edited by one of their pastors.

    Since by definition many Baptist churchs consider themselves to be denominations unto themselves (consistent with a local church only definition of the word ecclesia, and no this is not the thread to debate that idea), I am posting the address for Hamilton Square Baptist Church of San Fancisco, California.

    Just FYI, here's the link for the Sovereign Grace Baptist Churches Homepage. Guess they are a separate Baptist group with their own organization after all.

    How about the IFCA International (formerly I.F.C.A.)
    Independent Fundamental Churches of America was started in 1930. If you go to their "What We Believe" page you will have a very clear statement of what I perseonally believe. Here's the link:

    Here is a state Baptist convention that allows the churches and individuals to decide where they want their national dollars to do. Currently its front-page article is a response to the most recent SBC meeting.

    Baptist General Convention of Missouri:
