 FOREWORD
The Florida State Association of Old Line
·’ Baptist composed of Missionary Baptist Churches
is one af the more active denominational groups
in the state, although it is one of the young-
est. It is therefore fitting that the Florida
Historical Records Survey Project has prepared
as one of its initial series of publications,
an Inventory of the Archives of the Old Line
Association.
l l The Moderator has examined a copy of the
_ publication and is pleased to call it to the
attention of the association, for he feels
i that there is c need for more careful making
. and the better preservation of our records.

The Historical Records Survey program operates as a
series of state-wide projects in the several states under the
Research and Pecords Section, Division of Professional and
Service Projects, Work Projects Administration. The program
was organized in Florida in 1956 under the national direction P
of Dr. Luther H. Evans. On March i, 1940, Dr. Evans left to
become Director of the Legislative Reference Section of the
Library of Congress, and was succeeded by Sargent B. Child.
The Survey is engaged in the preparation of inventories
of, and bibliographical guides to, source materials hitherto
inaccessible to research workers. The Survey program in Flor-
ida, as throughout the nation, includes an inventory of state,
A county, municipal, and church archives, of American imprints,
and of manuscript depositories and collections.
. The Church Archives Inventory represents an important
phase of the Survey for it is through this inventory that
n many unknown and unusual religious records of interest to
historians and genealogists will be located. The records of
individual churches are being inventoried and these inven-
tories will be grouped and published by denominations-
This volume is one of a series of inventories to be pub-
lished on groups within denominational bodies in Florida.
Later these surveys may be combined into volumes by denomina-
tions and published for the whole state. The inventory of
each group includes an entry on the general organization, on
° each active church and mission connected therewith, and on
churches that became defunct while associated with the group.
t The Florida State Association of Old Line Baptist, com-
posed of Missionary Baptist Churches is an independent Bap-
tist body without national or regional affiliations.
Churches listed have weekly services unless otherwise
I stated in the entry. The educational background of the
\
`
t

 k`
e
i pastor is unsnown if not given. The actual titles of records [
i are written in full capitals, assigned titles of records are
E written in full capitals and are enclosed in parentheses,
[ explanatory titles are written with initial capitals and are '
j enclosed in parentheses. All records are located in the
: church building unless the names and addresses of the official
l custodians are given. Records not reported are either missing
g or destroyed.

i This volume was compiled and edited under the direction
‘- of Gordon C. Reeves, Church Editor, in accordance with tech-
, nical instructions from the Washington Office of Historical
Q Records Survev Projects. It was reviewed by Donald A. Thomp-
{ son, Assistant Archivist in charge of Church Archives Inven-
i tories. The field inventory for this volume was made under
E the direction of Miss May L. Touchton, district supervisor.

1- ELQRIDA STATE ASSGCIATIQM OF OLD LINE BAPTIST,
composed of Missionary Baptist Churches (Com-
' monly called Old Line Missionary Baptist Asso-
ciation) 1935--.
,. ,,The Florida State Association of Old Line Baptist, com-
posed of Missionary Baptist Churches, was organized in 1935
by churches which withdrew from the State Association (of
Landmark) Missionary Baptist Churches.(1) The Old Line As-
sociation is statewide in scope, but at the present time
there are member churches in only five counties. (Duval,
Lake, Orange, Osceola, Sumter).
Six churches; Campbell, New Hope, Pine Grove, Providence,
South Kissimmee and Tuscanooga were represented by messengers
at the preliminary organization session held with the Mt. Car-
mel Baptist Church, 1O miles northeast of Kissimmee, Osceola
l County, on Sept. 28, 1955.(2) Of these churches only three;
’ Campbell, Pine Grove and Tuscanooga became members of the per-
manent organization.(3) -
At the first annual session in 1936, the Temple Baptist _
6 Church, Kissimmee, was admitted into membership in the as-
sociation.(4) The following year five churches: Lake View,
Pleasant Hill, South Riverside, First Baptist Church of Mas-
cotte and the Second Baptist Church, Melbourne, came into
the body.[5) At the &938 session the Old Line Baptist Church,
Sumterville, sponsored by the association, and the McDuff
Avenue Baptist Church, Jacksonville, joined the association.
(6) In 1940 the Dunn's Creek Baptist Church was added to·the
association membership. The only loss to the association has

  been the Second Baptist Church, Melbourne, which became de-
3 funct in 1937.
! The messengers from the churches represented at the pre-
} liminary organization session, held Sept. 28,’i935, declared
* themselvbs an association of churches and elected Elder W.R. I
E Lanier as moderator and Elder M.E.Taylor, clerk.(7) The T
t group adopted an Order of Business, a Declaration of Princi-
i ples, cn Abstract of Faith and Rules of Decorum. The time and
; place for the first annual session was also set. By a vote
of the messengers the transactions of the association were re-
' ferred to the individual churches represented for their final
l approval or disapproval.(8) As previously stated, only three
I of the six churches entered into the permanent organization.
{
E The Declaration of Principles which serves as a constitu- ,
' tion for the association is very similar to the Declaration
T of Principles of the State Association (of Landmark) Mission-
i ary Baptist Churches from which some of the churches came.
Q K9) The Declaration states that the association is opposed }
; to Convention or any similar control of denominational ener-
_ gies and provides that this association shall never exercise
i any power over the member churches beyond·that of advisory
  council.[10) The association may withdraw fellowship from
5 any of its member churches if that church be guilty of charges
§ of unorrnoaoxnnss or disorderliness, the accusation having
  - been made by another member church.[iil
\ .
i The general object of the association is "to aid in giv-
E ing the gospel to all men on the gospel or New Testament plan,
T as exemplified by the example of the apostolic churches.“Ii2)
j The missionary work of the association is carried on by miss-
` ionaries appointed by the cooperating·churches. When an indi-
J vidual church desires aid in sending out a missionary to any

' field, the church corresponis wich the nearest sister church-
es, stating the amount necessary for full support of the
missionary and the amount the appointing church will give and
calling on the sister churches to adopt and help the same mis-
, sionary until the full support is provided.(15) Elder J.Grov.
[ or Sparkman proposed by the Tuscanooga Baptist Church and ap-
, proved in 1956 has served as a missionary since that time.
(14) The association owns a gospel tent, an automobile truck
and an electric light plant which are used in conducting ser-
vices at mission points.(15)
The association holds annual sessions at a time and .
place selected by the messengers at the previous session; the
moderator and clerk may select some other place for the acn-
vening of the body if the original church selected is unable
, to entertain the association.,(16) Fifth Sunday union meet-
ings are held but are not specifically provided for in the
Declaration of Principles or the Rules of Decorum.
} Each church may send three messengers to the annual ses-
sions so that there will be equal representation. The asso-
ciation prescribes no qualifications for messengers, the
church sending the messengers is the sole judge of their `
qualifications.(17)
The Declaration of Principles as originally adopted pro-
vides for the following officers; a moderator, a clerk, an ;
assistant clerk, a treasurer, and an auditor.[18) The next
year, 1956, an assistant moderator was added to the list of
officers.(19) In 1955, Elder W.R.Lanier, was elected moder-
ator and Elder M.E.Taylor was elected as clerk, both of these
officers have served continuously since that time. In 1036,

I Elder M.E.Taylor was elected as treasurer, an office he has
I also filled to date.(20) The Minutes contain no mention of
` the election of an auditor, assistant moderator, or assistant D
{ clerk, there have been, however, several occasions when clerks D
i bro tem and reading clerks have been appointed by the modera-
2 {OT.
5 The only auxiliary to the association is the Old Line Bap-
i tist Bible School. This auxiliary was approved at the 1938
; meeting of the association.[21) The Bible School held its
first annual session, June 15-16, 1939, with the South River-
i side Baptist Church. Elder Edward E. Swearingen served as
E moderator and Elder M.E.Taylor served as clerk.[22) The
i second annual session of the school was held June 29-30, 1940,
g with the Temple Baptist Church. Elders, M.E.Taylor, J.M.Keene,
E and E.J.Prevatt served as a program committee to arrange the
g meeting.(23)
i Although no committees are provided for in the Declare- U
I tion of Principles (Constitution) certain committees have func- Q
{ tioned at each of the regular annual sessions. These commit- Y
y tees and their chairmen for the various years were as follows:
  State Missions, 1936, N.B.Howard;(24) Inter-State Missions,
