About this collection

The Baptist Argus began publication on October 28, 1897 in Louisville, Kentucky. Under the masthead motto "Watch and Pray," the Argus published information on the activities of the Baptist church, from missionary appointments to changes in pastoral guidance at the local level and major actions of the statewide conferences. 

 

With the first issue of the year 1909, the publication's name was changed to The Baptist World. The motto was also changed to "Christ for the World, the World for Christ."

 

The Baylor collection includes the full run of the Argus, volumes one through twenty-three (1897-1919). Baylor University gratefully acknowledges the partnership of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, which provided the physical copies of the Argus for digitization.
