First African Baptist Church was organized in 1773 under the leadership of Reverend George Leile and established and constituted in December of 1777 as a body organized believers. Under the leadership of the 3rd Pastor Reverend Andrew C. Marshall, the congregation obtained the property where the present sanctuary stands. Marshall also organized the first black Sunday school in North America and changed the name of the church from “First Colored Baptist” to “First African Baptist”. The sanctuary was completed in 1859 under the direction of the 4th Pastor Reverend William J. Campbell. The ceiling of the church is in the design of a “Nine Patch Quilt” which represented that the church was a safe house for slaves. Beneath the lower auditorium floor is another finished sub floor which is known as the “Underground Railroad”. There is 4ft of height between both floors. The holes in the floor are in the shape of an African prayer symbol known as a Congolese Cosmogram that served a purpose of ventilation. First African Baptist Church has been a place of leadership and service since its inception. Reverend Emmanuel King Love, 6th Pastor, led the movement to establish Savannah State University, formerly known as Georgia State Industrial College for Colored Youth. Rev. Love also played a big role in the establishment of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA and Paine College in Augusta, GA. During the time of segregation the church served as the largest gathering place for blacks and whites to meet. Visitors from all walks of life have visited out sanctuary and left inspired.

This is a beautiful historic Church in Savannah. The Church was founded in 1777 & this building was built in 1855. The Pastor who was our tour guide was excellent! He provided the history of the church in depth. You should not miss this tour when you visit the brautiful and historic city of Savannah. The modest price for the... 更多

We actually heard about visiting this church from Patrick of Ghostwalker tours. We made it a point to see this church prior to leaving Savannah on our last day. We got lucky as their were tours at 11 and 2 but we did not know this prior to arrival. A very kind caretaker showed us around even though we had... 更多

My husband and I attended service here while on our honeymoon. We were blessed by the people, service, and worship. The history of this church is rich but not as rich as the sweet members who welcomed us in like family.
