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.

A very welcoming and very historic predominantly black church. Look for holes in floor which ventilated runaway slaves in basement. Rev. Tillman is an excellent speaker.

My husband and I went on this tour and really enjoyed it. There was so much history told. It was us see Savannah in a new light. The tour was very inexpensive, but worth so much more.

I am more into History than my husband and since it was my birthday, I knew it would pull a little weight in going to the First African Baptist Church for a guided tour. We were so impressed with the tour and the details of how the church came to be. My husband is a Contractor and for him to... 更多

Though this city is lovely, it is so important to appreciate the fact that it was built and functioned in its Golden Era entirely on the backs of enslaved African Americans. This church has great significance as the longest continuously running African American church in North America - and a stop on the Underground Railroad; it is sobering to see... 更多

We enjoyed this tour which touched on the power of faith and building this church while being a slave in the 1800s. The church was also a safe place for the Underground railroad. Be sure to read the discipline records that were recorded in the lower level.

This is the first African American church built by slaves at night. They do not allow photos inside the church. Went on the tour and the vivacious young parishioner described the dedication of these amazing slaves. Saw the holes drilled n the floor of the basement where runway slaves would hide. A very moving experience.
