Another chapter In the Ion, history of the Baptist denomina tion in Newport was begun Tues day evening when the congrega 'lions of the First and Secon Baptist Churches, in annual meet ngs held separately in the Secon meeting house, voted almos unanimously lo nerge their anlzations as the United Baptis Church--John Clarke Memoria The name honors Dr. John Clark leader of a company of refugee from religious persecution Massachusetts, who became tl organizer of what is claimed to 1 the oldest Baptist society in Ih country, in the colony thi founded on this island in 1638. ( The merger follows a trend j toward union noted in various such actions by church organizations in other localities, reversing an earlier tendency to divide whenever differences of opinion arose. The First Baptist Church, 308 years old, first split in 1656, when SI members withdrew to form the "Six Principle Church" because of adoctrinal disagreement. This group became the Second Baptist Churcli, which in turn was divided In 1817 by !.-.i secession of 43 adherents of Ihe principle that all baptized members of the church should.have a volo nn the question ot calling a minister. These formed the Central Baptist Church, which reunited with the Second society in 1P06. A further division in Bap- ·ist ranks was occasioned by the founding of the Sabbatarian Bap- lis*. Church in 167-1, observing the seventh day as their Sabbath.
