Divisions Within Traditionalists
In 1913 the Old Brethren withdrew from the Old German Baptist Brethren (OGBB) and formed the Old Order German Baptist Brethren, centered in Dayton, Ohio). In 1921, the Old Order German Baptist Brethren broke completely with the OGBB. The most recent split came in 2009 with the establishment of the Old German Baptist Brethren, New Conference.
Because of what some believed was a gradual drift away from apostolic standards, in 1926 a small group of conservatives withdrew from the Church of the Brethren and formed the Dunkard Brethren Church.
Famous quotes containing the word divisions:
“I find myself ... hoping a total end of all the unhappy divisions of mankind by party-spirit, which at best is but the madness of many for the gain of a few.”
—Alexander Pope (16881744)
