    Good info. Are the nuts you referred to IFB? Didn't see them on the tree. :smilewinkgrin:

    Very interesting, Salty. Thanks for the link. Next term my daughter is taking a seminar class called "Church, Slavery and Civil War". I'm sure she'll find the site very useful. :D

    It's a handy chart, but I notice that it omits entirely the English General Baptists, some of whom immigrated to North Carolina planted the seeds of the Free Will Baptists.

    The division of the Philadelphia Association into "Old Lights" and "New Lights" also confuses me a bit. The Old Light-New Light split is generally used in reference to to the Congregationalist churches (a result of the first Great Awakening). It is true that you will find some references that will speak of an Old Light-New Light Baptist division, but the more common terminology is Regular vs. Separate. The chart does point out, correctly, that the division was short-lived.

    A. Because the tree stops in 1950.
    B. IFBs would be included in the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches (North)
    C. It does include The American Baptist Association (Landmarkers) and others as offshoots of the SBC. The ABA and the others could be considered IFBs.
    D. It does not include the Baptist Bible Fellowship and other major offshoots of the SBC. These organizations are considered to be IFB.
    E. It does not include the Fundamental Baptist Fellowship International and other IFB offshoots of the Northern Baptist Convention. Again these folks are considered IFB.
    F. I don't know who on the chart would be considered "nuts".

    What I was referring to was those IFB churches who aren't connected w/ any fellowship or association, etc.
    We may be nuts, but by the grace of God, we're attempting "oak tree" things for His glory! :godisgood:
