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.

My husband and I recently had a lovely 4-day stay in Savannah, where we got to see a number of wonderful historical sites, but the First African Baptist church topped them all. The history of the place is unbelievable. Our tour guide, Erica, was the BEST tour guide we have ever had. Her presentation was captivating and entertaining, and she... 更多

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.

This was one of the major highlights of our trip to Savannah! We were educated about the entire history of this congregation's humble beginnings all the way up to the present by our well-informed guide. Don't visit Georgia without stopping by for an hour-long tour...you'll be glad you did!!

The historic facts of how the church was built and the dedication of the slaves who constructed it. Such dedication can not be found in today's world.

The history of how the slaves built this church, brick-by-brick is a prenominal story. It also later served as a passage through the underground railroad to reach free states. The church is in one of Savannah's squares shrouded in beautiful oak trees. This location is in close proximity to City Market-a major tourist area full of great restaurants, antique shops,... 更多

This church was built by slaves and held services for slaves. It has a very rich history which you will learn when you take the tour. We were so glad we did!! After you are done, head across the square to the city market area for lunch at a patio restaurant.

I have been to Savannah at least six times and everytime I go I stopped by this historical landmark to see and understand my heritage and the struggle of our ancestors. The church is beautiful from the outside and represents the African American culture. My only issue is that I always miss the tour, the tour hours are a little... 更多

Tour was eye opening, lots of history all in one place. Found many artifacts and information that you can't get in a book. This is a church that needs to be seen in the present.
