Minutes of the Fifty-Ninth Annual Session of the Birmingham Baptist Association Held with Warrior Baptist Church, Warrior, Jefferson County, Alabama, September 27, 28 and 29, 1892 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Minutes of the Fifty-Ninth Annual Session of the Birmingham Baptist Association Held With Warrior Baptist Church, Warrior, Jefferson County, Alabama, September 27, 28 and 29, 1892 The work Of the Home Mission Board is located in the States Of the South, the Indian Territory and Cuba. As Opportunity may Offer, or te sources may warrant, jit has been authorized to extend the limits of its work toward the setting sun and into the Western territories. During the past year its work has been prosecuted with its usual vigor. The reports show that the greatest achievements have been wrought in Cuba. Amidst the persecution which has prevailed upon the island since the introduction of a pure religion, the indomitable Diaz has continued with a Pauline Spirit to prosecute his work. The general work of the Board has been the evangelization of such quarters of our country as could not be reached and cultivated by the several State Boards. Of late, the Home Board is turning its attention to the evangelization Of the cities of the South where heretofore Baptist doctrines have not been propagated. In this late movement the Board should command the um qualified support of the Baptists of the South. The drift of population is toward the great centers. These give back influences for good or for evil to the rural districts and in proportion as these inﬂuences exist. In short, the time is not far distant when the cities will dictate the sentiment of the country. There needs, therefore, to be cast into the great central lumps the leaven of the Gospel, that in its outreaching it may Christianize the entire land. The Board deserves our prayers and our contributions in its varied enterprises This is is especially recommended with respect to the centennial movement as it stands related to our Home Mission Board.
