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.

We had the opportunity to visit the church but with no tour guide. We actually had a parishioner take us through some of the rooms that were used to move freed slaves to safety. The holes in the floor provided light, air and direction to those walking under the church to freedom. Great historical site!

This is a must for anyone who wants to actually stand in the midst of history. The first church built by Slaves and is still standing is definitely a must visit. We had a bit of confusion with the tour times and so first time we went, we had just missed the last tour. The information says tours run from... 更多

The tour was very informative and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. The tour lasted about 45 minutes. The church is nice and it is amazing that it took the slaves four years to build by hand. The Underground Railroad is beneath this church. I have chills just thinking about it.

This was the second time I have visited this church. I remembered that the tour leader from my visit a few years ago was exceptional, and I hoped that this time we would get someone equally knowledgeable and entertaining. I was not disappointed! This church is such an interesting part of American history, as it was built by slaves and... 更多

Very interesting and informative look back into the history of one of the oldest Black churches in America. Loved hearing about the writings on the sides of the pew, which I never would have noticed if our guide hadn't pointed them out.

This is the oldest organized Black church in America in continuous existence. The historical importance of First African Baptist Church cannot be underestimated. And it is most important for guests visiting Savannah to understand the story of this Church in order to better appreciate Black history.

This wonderful church has its place in Savannah's history books. It was built by slaves and held services for slaves where they found peace and sanctuary. The markings on the outside of the balcony pews shows their need for connections to their past and family. This church also played an important part in the underground railroad. This is a not... 更多
