Regular Baptists - Rankings by Area (States) [Counties] [Metro-Areas]

Regular Baptists have their roots in the Great Awakening in the 1740s, when new Baptists were divided into Regular Baptists and Separate Baptists. Despite differences between these groups, they spent much of the late 1700s attempting to reunify. In 1765, the first Regular Baptist Church was formed in Virginia and given the name Ketoctin. The Regular Baptists began a move to reconstitute themselves in the middle of the 19th century, and in 1854, the New Salem Association of United Baptists changed their name to the New Salem Association of Regular Baptists. This group rejected the innovations introduced among American Baptists during the nineteenth century. In 1870, they adopted the name Old Regular Baptists. [View our profile of Regular Baptists]
