SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The First Bryan Baptist Church held their very first Founders Day Celebration Sunday, they are taking a moment to remember how the church came to be.

"Sunday is such a special day and it really means a lot to us as we go back in history and remember our founder, because we are the oldest continuous African American Baptist Church in North America. So, it really means a lot, not to just us, but to all African America Baptist Sunday."

Pastor James says the founder of the church, Andrew Bryan, was a one of a kind person.

"Andrew Bryan was probably one of the greatest people who lived, he was such a tenacious person, he was such a corageous person, for even moving in the face of oposition and really gathering African Americans together for worship when it was so frowned upon."

Pastor James went on to say he hopes people can take away from Bryan's message, to never give up on your dreams.
