ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Inspired by a desire for unity and Christian fellowship among Primitive Baptists in the United States of America, the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA (representing Primitive Baptist Churches of African heritage in 18 states) was organized as the Colored Primitive Baptists of America on July 17, 1907 by Dr. Clarence Frances Sams of Key West, Florida and Elder George S. Crawford of DeLand, Florida who enlisted the support and cooperation of leading pastors and moderators of Florida, Alabama, and North Carolina.
Today, the largest concentration of Primitive Baptists who are members of the National Primitive Baptist Convention, USA is located in the State of Florida, followed by the states of Alabama, Tennessee, Texas, and North Carolina/Virginia. (Other states represented are Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Georgia, California, Mississippi, and Louisiana.)
