It was a time of considerable political and religious turmoil.Both individuals and churches were willing to give up their theological roots if they became convinced that a more biblical "truth" had been discovered.Many of Alline's followers, after his death, would convert and strengthen the Baptist presence in the Atlantic region.Two major groups of Baptists formed the basis of the churches in the Maritimes.
In 1639, Williams established a Baptist church in Providence, Rhode Island, and Clarke began a Baptist church in Newport, Rhode Island.
In 1609 Smyth first baptized himself and then baptized the others.
In 1609, while still there, Smyth wrote a tract titled "The Character of the Beast," or "The False Constitution of the Church." In it he expressed two propositions: first, infants are not to be baptized; and second, "Antichristians converted are to be admitted into the true Church by baptism." Hence, his conviction was that a scriptural church should consist only of regenerate believers who have been baptized on a personal confession of faith.
Thomas Helwys formulated a distinctively Baptist request that the church and the state be kept separate in matters of law, so that individuals might have freedom of religion.
Helwys died in prison as a consequence of the religious conflict with English dissenters under King James I.
He rejected the Separatist movement's doctrine of infant baptism (paedobaptism).
