CONSTITUTION AND MEMBERSHIP OF LIBERTY BAPTIST CHURCH
(From the Minutes of Liberty Baptist Church, Wilkinson County, GA, 1837-1854)

Georgia
Wilkinson County
Where as a number of Brothers and Sisters of the Baptist denomination living in
the county and state aforesaid in and about the neighborhood of James
Hatchers, between Mount Nebo Church and the Oconee River on the road
leading from Irwinton to the White Bluff on said River, having been dismissed by
Letter from other churches of the Baptist faith and order, and for certain good
reasons and causes which exist, as well as desiring to keep house for God, have
agreed and covenanted to gather to be constituted into a church at the new
meeting house built for that purpose near the said James Hatchers on the said
road aforesaid, which is known by the name of Liberty. For which purpose we
have called for our beloved Brethren in the Ministry John Hughs, Jordin Baker,
Henry Messer, from the Ebenezer Association, and Joel P. Leverett from the
Washington Association, who met with the Brethren and Sisters on Tuesday,
August 29th 1837 at the meeting house aforesaid. The Brethren, according to
previous appointment, met at the place appointed on the day above written; John
Hughs, Jordin Baker, Henry Messer and Joel P. Leverett; and called for the
Letters of Dismission, where upon the following persons came forward and
presented these Letters; Lewis Smith and his wife Elizabeth Smith, Lewis Clay
and his wife Judy Clay, Milly Ethridge, James Hatcher produced Letters from the
church at Bethell, Wilkinson County, Cholson Sanders and his wife Sarah
Sanders from the church at new Ebenezer Wilkinson County, and John Bales
from Poplar Spring Washington County, and upon examination were found to be
orderly and orthodox, and being recommended by Letter as Truth, we the
presbytery proceeded to constitute them into a church upon the faith of the
Ebenezer Association. Brother Hughs was called to the chair to examine into the
standing, and Brother Leverett gave the charge and extended the right hand of
fellowship, followed by all the presbytery. Brother Messer delivered the
concluding prayer. The church then proceeded to call Brother Hughs to be their
Moderator and opened a door for the reception of members. None came
forward. Conference adjourned until tomorrow evening.
