193 – July 11 – THIS DAY IN BAPTIST HISTORY PAST

Baptist multiplication

The Baptists of England, besides the physical persecution, had undergone vicious verbal

attacks misrepresenting their profession of faith. Therefore they found it necessary to set forth

a confession of faith to publicly declare their belief’s before all. The first was put forth in the

name of seven congregations in 1643. By the year 1689 the seven churches represented had

expanded to “upwards of one hundred baptized congregations in England and Wales (denying

Arminianism) being met together in London, from the third of the seventh month to the eleventh

of the same, 1689, to consider some things that might be for the glory of God, and the good of

these congregations.
