 Association Founded in 1846
HISTORY

BEFORE 1846, THIS ASSOCIATION WAS PART OF THE WESTERN DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. THE WESTERN DISTRICT ASSOCIATION WAS ORGANIZED IN 1822 AND IS ONE OF THE OLDEST IN TENNESSEE. PRIOR TO THIS, THE ASSOCIATION CAN BE TRACED BACK INTO NORTH CAROLINA AND WEST VIRGINIA WHEN THE COLONIES WERE STILL UNDER ENGLISH RULE. IT WAS IN THESE COLONIES THAT THE BAPTIST PATRIOT, PATRICK HENRY, DEFENDED THE BAPTIST PREACHERS BEFORE THE COLONIAL OFFICERS WHO WERE APPOINTED BY ENGLAND. AND, IT WAS HERE IN THESE COLONIES THAT THOMAS JEFFERSON, AUTHOR OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, MADE INQUIRY ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT OF BAPTIST CHURCHES AND ASSOCIATIONS SO THAT HE MIGHT USE IT AS A MODEL TO ASSIST IN FORMING THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE OLDEST BAPTIST ASSOCIATION IN THE UNITED STATES IS THE PHILADELPHIA ASSOCIATION WHICH HAS PERHAPS DONE MORE FOR MISSIONS THAN ANY OTHER.

THE FIRST MEETING OF THIS ASSOCIATION WAS HELD AT MOUNT COMFORT MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH IN 1846. MOUNT COMFORT IS IN CARROLL COUNTY TENNESSEE LOCATED NEAR MAPLE CREEK LAKE IN WHAT IS NOW NATCHEZ TRACE STATE PARK. IT IS ONE OF THE OLDEST CHURCHES IN THE AREA. ASSOCIATIONAL MEETINGS HAVE BEEN HELD EACH FOLLOWING YEAR WITH THE EXCEPTION OF 1862 THROUGH 1864. NO MEETINGS WERE HELD DURING THE CIVIL WAR.
