2009 = 400 years of Baptists

Did you know that 2009 is the 400th anniversary of the Baptists? It’s true, it is. I thought you’d want to know if you didn’t already.

Back in Amsterdam in 1609, this man named John Smyth decided to be baptized because no one among his group of fellow Christians had been baptized as a believer… I guess there is more to it than that… but that is basically the nutshell of our Baptist beginnings.

I bring this up now because half the year is gone and I thought you might want to celebrate. Clearly, these are cake eating times (if you are some sort of Baptist). 400 slices seem in order. Get busy I guess if you aren't Baptist, you can still celebrate if you want... might be wierd though.

If you want to know more about Baptist History and Heritage you can check out the Baptist History and Heritage website.
