PostSubject: Southern Baptist Convention   Fri Dec 31, 2010 11:12 pm

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is a United States-based, Christian denomination. It is the world's largest Baptist denomination and the largest Protestant body in the US with over 16 million members and more than 42,000 churches.[2]

The word Southern in Southern Baptist Convention stems from its having been founded and rooted in the Southern United States. The SBC became a separate denomination in 1845 in Augusta, Georgia, following a regional split with northern Baptists over the issues of slavery and missions. After the American Civil War, another split occurred: most black Baptists in the South separated from white churches and set up their own congregations. In the late 1860s, they rapidly set up several separate state conventions. In 1895 their three national conventions merged into the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc.. With 8 million members, it is the largest African-American religious organization and is second in size to the Southern Baptist Convention.

Since the 1940s, the SBC has moved away from some of its regional identification.[3] While still heavily concentrated in the US South, the SBC has member churches across the United States and 41 affiliated state conventions.[4][5]
