Official Actions of the Redstone Baptist Association,
Rejecting Campbellism, and Thomas and Alexander Campbell
and the Beaver Anathema

In 1823 Alexander Campbell held a debate on Baptism with Mr. Maccalla of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Maccalla attempted to bring into the debate the question of "Church Identity." Mr. Campbell had said that the Church at Jerusalem was a Baptist Church. Mr. Maccalla denied this, and demanded proof that the Baptist Church had a line of succession. Mr. Campbell challenged him to a discussion of that question, and offered to prove the succession of Baptist Churches from the days of the apostles. The following is a quotation from the debate on this point, by Alexander Campbell: "Waldenses, in their confession of faith, A. D. 1521, and hosts in the Sixteenth Century, have advocated the Baptist sentiments and practice." Again, in the same speech, "Clouds of witnesses attest the fact that before the Reformation from popery, and from the apostolic age to the present time, the sentiment of the Baptists, and the practice of Baptism have had a continued chain of advocates, and public monuments of their existence in every century can be produced." Again, "There were Baptists in all ages that never acknowledged the Mother of Harlots; and besides Catholic, Episcopalian and Presbyterian clergy had joined their community, and therefore, whatever efficacy of office there was on earth, was to be found in the Baptist community."

The Modern Mission System
and Its Insatiable Thirst for Money -
and Its Rejection by the Primitive Baptists

In 1814 and 1815, when Luther Rice began to spread his heresy and mission plan, it met with immediate opposition. An example, appears in the New River Associaton of Virginia:

New River Association of Virginia, 1816 - "A request from Bethel Church for opening a regular correspondence with the Board of Foreign Missions - after considerable altercation, finding it could not be carried into effect, liberty was obtained to withdraw the request."
