A History of the Baptist Churches in Ohio, 1789-1907

With Particular Reference to the Ohio Baptist Convention

By Dr. Richard H. Clossman

Edited by Patrick D. Kennedy & Terry L. Wolever


I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works;
I muse on the work of thy hands. – Psalm 143:5


"Baptist history is important to me. In reality, it is essential for all Christians to know and understand their faith heritage, especially those who are Baptists. As we look back at the struggles and joys of the Baptists in the past, connecting the church instituted in the New Testament with the faithful witnesses of the later generations, we gain an encouragement that the Lord is still working and using people for His glory."  --Patrick Kennedy, from the Introduction
