The movement of churches today called "General Baptists" began in America in 1823 when founder Benoni Stinson organized the Liberty Church (now Howell General Baptist Church) in southern Indiana. In 1870 the General Association of General Baptists was organized, bringing together General Baptist local associations of churches in cooperative efforts. The name 'general' is derived from the view that Christ died to make salvation 'possible' for anyone who exercises a (free)-will choice to receive it.
