Seventh Day Baptists

Quick Reference

From about the 1640s some English Baptists regarded the Fourth Commandment as requiring the observance of Saturday, rather than Sunday, as the day of rest and worship. The movement spread to North America, where a group of them severed their membership of the Baptist Church in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1671. Seventh Day Baptists, though small in number, still survive.
