There were certain events that had occurred in Philadelphia and Baltimore prior to 1816 supporting the association of what was called colored Methodists into a self-governing society that had obviously extended to Charleston, S. C. Despite the fact that Richard Allen and Daniel Coker regulated the movements in Philadelphia and Baltimore, Morris Brown carried out one in Charleston. In the previous dwelling it assumed form in 1817-18. At this stage the organizations add up to about one thousand. In 1822 the amount had enlarged to nearly three thousand. Connected with Morris Brown in the work of the party were Henry Drayton, Charles Carr, Amos Cruickshank, Marcus Brown, Stewart Simpson, Harry Bull, John B. Matthews, James Eden, London Turpin, and Aleck Houlston. They secured a lot which they constructed a spacious but modest house of worship. They also possessed their own "field of graves," which is referred to as a burial-ground. They were really overjoyed over their achievement to worship God under their own vine and fig-tree. Their jubilation, however, was brief.
Being an active member of Beulah Baptist Church has impacted my life in so many ways; spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. It has helped me grown stronger in loving, worshipping, knowing of God through my praise, dance, and mime. As, a member I have the ability to learn about God and how he can impact not just my life, but other people around me and witness how God can influence their lives.

Even, meeting new people has taught me to welcome others with big arms and a huge smile. At Beulah Baptist, it gives me a stable, supportive, and friendly environment filled with loving and caring people.

The fact that she is a woman religious who writes from a feminist perspective adds to her unique and distinguished career. This paper will examine the revisionist method espoused by Elizabeth Johnson, in an effort to understand her approach to Christian feminism. An overview of revisionist methodology will be presented so as to understand the framework in which Johnson works. References to some of Johnson!s writings will then be presented in an effort to illustrate her revisionist method. Finally a survey of various critics will then be presented in an effort to determine what has made her method, approach and style groundbreaking in the
In Baptist history there has always been differences in doctrine. This has unfortunately resulted, at times, to separate believers from one another. This can be evident from comparing two American Baptist confessions. The most notable difference in doctrine between The Philadelphia Confession of 1742 and A Treatise on the Faith of the Free Will Baptists, 1834 and 1948 is the doctrine of Calvinism versus free-will.

A closer look at these two confessions show that throughout Baptist history certain doctrines remain constant while others are debated and cause separation of believers. However, this has not stopped the Gospel message to be preached
