Sept 9, 1832. Isaac McCoy organized a Baptist Church in the Creek Nation three miles north of the Arkansas River and about eighteen miles west of Port Gibson. He wrote: “On the 9th of September, I constituted the Muscogee (Creek) Baptist Church, consisting of Mr. Lewis and wife, Mr. Davis, and three black men who were slaves to the Creeks. In the afternoon we worshipped in another place in the neighborhood. This was the first Baptist church formed in the Indian Territory .” ABHS has correspondence from McCoy, as well as many books and articles about him.
