The 1857 meeting of the Kings Mountain Baptist Association took place at the Big Springs Meeting-House (present day: Big Springs Baptist Church) in Ellenboro located in neighboring Rutherford County. The introductory sermon was delivered by Elder George W. Rollins who also authored the circular letter. References in the minutes are made to the adoption of the Baptist Harmony hymn book as a uniform hymnal to be used by member churches. References are made to pedobaptists and how they shall be received into a congregation.
