Today in Christian History – July 18

1704 – Death of Baptist leader Benjamin Keach. Years earlier, he had been fined and pilloried for a work entitled A Child’s Instructor which rejected infant baptism.

Keach is also known to have promoted the introduction of hymn singing in the Baptist churches.

His church, Horslydown, was probably the first church in England to sing hymns, as opposed to psalms and paraphrases. Keach’s hymnbook, published in 1691, provoked heated debate in the 1692 Assembly of Particular Baptists.
