Due to the slavery of southern and Northern different divisions. In 1845 the southern states of the United States established the "Southern Baptist" (The Southern Baptist Convention). In 1907 the North Church jointly established the "northern Baptist" (The Northern Baptist Convention). along with American Civil War

After the Second World War the majority of American Baptist believers still belong to the north and south of the two big church. Northern Baptist believers less in number, as of 1984, about 1 million 600 thousand people, its internal Fundamentalism
The struggle is fierce and modern. The development road after this struggle decided the will to a great extent. In 1946, the national assembly, fundamentalist first attack, an attempt to "infallibility" creed imposed on the church to preach, education and other important control committee leadership, weaken and The World Council of Churches
The relationship was rejected. The meeting reiterated " The New Testament
"Is the authority principle of divine revelation records and belief, emphasizing different sects should strengthen cooperation. Since then, fundamentalist forces failed to prevail in the northern Baptist. Some fundamentalist believers and moderates in 50s was out, the other group of xinhui. The northern Baptist have since been marked with liberalism. In view of the method of geographical scope demarcation has lost and practical significance, in 1950 renamed the northern Baptist Baptist (The American Baptist Convention). This will greatly expand the missionary, increasing its social influence and economic strength. But since the dispersion of internal reasons, such as lack of clergy, the number of believers increased far behind the U.S. population growth. To reverse this phenomenon will set up the executive secretary, responsible for the overall coordination of educational administration, and later merged with some missionary affairs agencies, strengthen the contact between the special committee, actively develop relations with other churches and denominations. In the social and political aspects, pay close attention to the question of war and peace, against the settlement of international disputes by means of war, advocated the peaceful use of nuclear energy, give full play to the role of the United Nations, the end of the cold war with the Soviet Union and peaceful coexistence.

In view of the increasingly obvious racial discrimination and racial conflicts in American society, the church's early show against racial discrimination and take action to improve race relations requirements. After the middle of the 1960s, the United States domestic and international situation of intense turmoil.

The relief. The apartheid system in South Africa
In 1972 the American Baptist English name changed to American Baptist churches in the U.S.A. In 1980s it was recognized as a middle of the road to the church, because the internal hold from liberalism to Fundamentalism
The various schools of theology; ethnic minority believers constitute complex, followers of more than 1/3, in the organizational structure, emphasis on care and reflect the different ingredients. The desire to fully respect the freedom of the local church. It attaches great importance to Ecumenical movement
And with other religious dialogue, it is known in the United States for diversification of the church. In 1980s, it started a mission plan, to build 500 new churches in 10 years, and has allocated millions of dollars. But little progress, the number of believers only to maintain the status quo. American Baptist
After the war, the development of American Southern Baptist for various Protestant groups in the u.s.. The development of the fast growth in the number of believers and the length of the duration is very prominent. Along with the industrialization of the southern states, the increased mobility of the population, more and more people flow into the city or the South California
So, with the Southern Baptist trace to build new churches, and the development of theological education, training the new Protestant pastor, absorption. The increase will believers. From 1950 to 1955 increased 19.7% from 1955 to 1960 believers; increase of 14.8%; to 1972 believers up to 12 million people, 34534 church. By 1983, the development of believers to 14 million, the church reached 36531. To 1989 believers for 14722671 people, 37238 church. The seminary and its affiliated school enrollment increased revenue and total budget increase. A Southern Baptist Church is now far from the south, across the United States has become the largest Protestant church groups.
Before and after the increase in 1960s and the change of Southern Baptist Christian theology is not unrelated. After 1960s, the impact of the trend of social change in the Southern Baptist Church, the internal requirements to keep pace with the times the strong voice, the Conservative
The position began to loosen. In addition to the Bible and the traditional authority creed, to other theological thoughts within the church have a tolerant attitude, no longer mandatory measures to suppress. This will be from mid 1970s to 1960s in theology is dominated with some liberal Evangelism
, known as a moderate. In the meantime, the Southern Baptist believers increased, political attitude is open. But the traditional conservatives and fundamentalists are not willing, in 1979 launched a power struggle, trying to put the pull to the right. The core of the conservative theological position is the so-called "infallibility" theory. They tend to disagree with this theological view of people referred to as liberals. For the end of Southern Baptist leadership moderates dominate the situation, conservative offensive from two aspects of the impact of expanding its leadership position and seize church theological perspectives. Since the beginning of 1979, the Southern Baptist is elected for a term of one year as chairman as by conservatives, the chairman of the actual appointment of leaders of various important institutions, conservative and gradually took control of many key institutions. The balance of power in its central leadership within the conservative and moderate changes more and more conducive to the former. By 1987, an important section of the South Baptist administrative committee, overseas missionary Committee and 6 seminaries in 5 have been conservative. In order to strengthen its influence on theology, conservatives have taken some measures. In 1985, the Southern Baptist established a "Peace Committee", aims to the internal activities of the church to mediate differences and find solutions. However, after two years, put forward by the committee's report is clearly confirmed by the conservative "infallibility" theory. Based in the Southern Baptist moderates within the seminary has been more abundant, so the Conservatives to strengthen the control of the seminary. They use a variety of ways to strengthen the signature of theological creed. Dissenting teachers often face the risk of dismissal. In order to strengthen the control of the local church, 1988 by a Southern Baptist laity "priesthood of all resolutions, to individual believers can adhere to his conservative viewpoint, and claimed that this principle and priest responsibility and authority are not contradictory. The fierce opposition moderates, in the face of strong offensive conservative, moderate side accused the conservative power, a strict Baptist to respect the freedom of the traditional interpretation of the Bible, including personal freedom. The missionary and advocate in cooperation and unity in the different factions of the common cause. Overall, moderate activity is weak and feeble. The influence on the conservative rejection under constantly to be weakened, its internal differences also exist in the problem on how to reverse the situation. For the accumulation of power, many other moderates established "the Southern Baptist union". But most of the moderate clergy and believers did not exit, will be the so-called "loyal opposition in the Southern Baptist". In short, the 1980s has been basically controlled by the Southern Baptist conservatives, in theology as Fundamentalism
Color, politically conservative forces have close ties with the United states. The Southern Baptist Union even declared that "Southern Baptist is now a fundamentalist rule of the church". For many years the internal struggle brought some adverse effects to the Southern Baptist, as believers increased slowly, seminary enrollment atrophy.
Since World War II, the relationship with other denominations and domestic social issues of Southern Baptist, vary in different periods, but the general trend is gradually breaking the isolation. After the war it was of the ecumenical movement interest relations in 1947 set up a special organization for research and the northern Baptist, and against the government's military buildup. But with the increase of fundamentalist forces, in early 1950s, turned to attack the Oneness Movement and radical political union, resolutely oppose communism. In 1960s, the moderate leadership advantage, which expressed concern on social issues, expressed support for the black civil rights movement, for peaceful resolution Vietnam war
On abortion, homosexuality, also pay attention to, welcome to negotiate the relaxation of international tension and restrictions on strategic weapons su.
