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 the oldest continuously active black baptist church in North America. Generations of African Americans have been going to this church to this day. Profound and amazing historic significance !

Erica was a great tour guide. She gave a thorough history of the church in the 45 minutes we walked around. It has inspired me to take the Civil Rights Tour on my next trip. Be advised there are lots of stairs.

We went in on the tour of the church and the girl who talked about the history was passionate and informative. The slaves that built this church from scratch, in their free time did a fantastic job. ~If you go to Savanna go see this church

We just walked through. It was interesting to discover this place on the River side of town. I wouldnt not have thought to find that there. Cool little quick stop if you are in the area.
