- Missionary Baptists
Part of a series on Baptists Baptist portal
Missionary Baptists are a group of Baptists that grew out of the missionary / anti-missionary controversy that divided Baptists in the United States in the early part of the 19th century, with Missionary Baptists following the pro-missions movement position. Those who opposed the innovations became known as anti-missions or Primitive Baptists Since arising in the 19th Century, the influence of Primitive Baptists waned as "Missionary Baptists became the mainstream".
