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. TOUR RATES: Adults = $7.00; Seniors = $6.00; Students = $6.00; Children Ages 5 & Under = FREE. TOUR HOURS OF OPERATION: Tuesday - Saturday = 11:00 a.m. & 2:00p.m. Sunday = 1:00p.m.

my visit was emotional because I had some family members tell stories of this church. It was amazing to touch and feel it a part of history.

This was the BEST TOUR I've taken in Savannah! Our tour guide was amazing and gave a great narration of the sacrifice given to build this church. I'll never forget that this church was built by slaves at night after a hard days work and the imbedded symbols & signs to inform those seeking freedom that this church was a... 更多

What a gorgeous and historic church this is. Sad the outside stain glass has to be covered for protection because the glass is so beautiful. Tours are at 11 and 2 Tuesday-Saturday, so time your visit accordingly. What a beautiful place and if you're into history, don't miss it.

Our tour guide told us the very interesting history of this church, how its member built it at night because, being slaves, they had to work for their owners during the day. I would like to go back sometime and see the interior of this church, maybe even attend a service. This is an amazing building.

In a town where parking is at a premium, you can park in the church's lot for a mere $10. A bargain if you can't find parking on the street.

I visited this church while on the Freedom Trail Tour with Johnnie Brown. The First African Baptist Church was one of the stops on the tour. I learned so much especially about that fact that his church was used a safe haven for slaves as the Underground Railroad.

Fascinating insight into the history of the founding of this lovely church in the city. The speaker was passionate and knowledgeable, the tour very enjoyable, and the church itself quite pretty. Overall 70 minutes but time flew by. The best tour I went on whilst in the city, and the cheapest!

I was so impressed by the churches involvement with the underground railroad and the wisdom of the slaves who built the church to incorporate into its design things to help runaway slaves to escape to freedom. Most of these features are still present and will be seen during tours.
