"It is envisioned that this short history will serve as an introduction to the nearly 350 years of Seventh Day Baptist history; that it will be useful in understanding both the history and polity of the denomination; that it will be a tool in sharing this heritage with those unfamiliar with Seventh Day Baptists; and that it will encourage further study and examination of the beliefs and practices of those Baptists who have accepted the seventh day of the week as the biblical Sabbath"--Pref.
