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.

This is a must-see on the list of historic places in Savannah. The church was built by slaves on their own time which usually meant working at night. There is also a connection to the Underground Railroad. We were disappointed that the church was not open at the time we visited.

The Frist African Baptist Church is an absolute must on the list of places to visit while in Savannah. You will be welcomed and taken on a very informative tour. You will see the actual hiding spots of people who have escaped slavery and are on the run for their freedom. It is very touching to stand on the wooden... 更多

So glad the woman in the visitors center told us to stop by. Be careful about arriving ON TIME for a tour -- and note that is the only time you can come in for a visit. The church is filled with incredible history and truly is a cornerstone of Savannah. Our guide was amazing - warm and friendly, explaining... 更多

Joseph Dobson was by far one of the best tour guides of our trip. He was easily engaged 50 14 year old for over an hour. The tour of the church is equally impressive. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

My wife and I had an amazing and humbling experience visiting this wonderful and inspirational church for the 11 am tour on 5/13/2017. Combined with the information provided on the tour by our excellent guide - who was more of a professor than a guide, the church building itself tells one of history's most heroic stories. The brilliance and courage... 更多
