Southern Baptist Church

Dr. Eric R. Jackson, Southern Baptist Church

Located in North Avondale, Southern Baptist Church was founded in 1917 in the home of Deacon and Sister S. C. Carter as a Sunday school mission. The name "Southern" came from the founding members' southern roots. The church, unlike most in the north, practiced a southern style of worship (shouting, clapping, etc.). This connection continued as the first Reverend grew the congregation by going to the train station to invite new arrivals from the south to join the church.
