"Old" Missionary Baptists Associations (Late 1700s - Present) - Religious Group

Religious Family: Baptist
Religious Tradition: Evangelical Protestant
Description: The Old Missionary Baptist Associations are traditional and conservative sects of the Baptist church. They believe in ways of living that are less technologically dependent than modern culture, and are Calvinistic in their beliefs. They trace their roots back to the formation of United Baptists, which took place during the late 1700s as several of the Regular Baptists and Separate Baptists organizations merged.
