The Ohio Baptist General Convention, Incorporated as we are known today began as the Ohio Baptist State Convention (Colored) in 1896. There were three Associations that formed earlier, namely, Providence in 1834; Eastern in 1872 and Western also, in 1872. Each Association formed as an Anti-Slavery Missionary Baptist Association after the Negro ministers were expelled from the Teays Valley Association. Visit the site and read more history on the OBGC.
