HARTFORD MEMORIAL BAPTIST CHURCH
A BRIEF HISTORY
Hartford Memorial Baptist Church celebrates 97 years of loving God and serving the world community.
The Rev. Edgar Wendell Edwards served as founding pastor from 1917 to 1920 when he relocated to
Chicago. After a diligent search, the Church called the Rev. Charles A. Hill Sr., assistant to the Rev. Robert
L. Bradby Sr., of Detroit’s historic Second Baptist Church. Installed as pastor in November of 1920, he
served for 48 years until his retirement on his 75 th Birthday, April 28, 1968. During his progressive
pastorate, Dr. Hill built new church facilities on the corner of Hartford and Milford and subsequently, a
community and recreation facility. He was a strong supporter of organized labor; UAW Ford Local 600 was
organized at Hartford Church. An outspoken champion of civil rights in the difficult days before the Civil
Rights Movement, Dr. Hill was at the forefront of the struggle for equality in the 1930s, ‘40s and ‘50s. He
was one of the first Blacks to run for the Detroit City Council. Courageously, he opened the Hartford pulpit
to such nonconformists as W.E.B. DuBois and Paul Robeson.
On April 6, 1969, Hartford gleefully received its son, Charles Gilchrist Adams, as pastor of the church in
which he had been reared, indoctrinated, baptized, licensed, ordained and married. At that time, Dr. Adams,
an honors graduate of the University of Michigan and Harvard Divinity School, had just begun his seventh
year as pastor of the historic Concord Baptist Church in Boston, New England’s largest African American
congregation. Having burned the old mortgage in 1971, Dr. Adams led Hartford into the current James
Couzens’ facilities on April 10, 1977; under his strong and vigorous leadership, this mortgage was burned in
1983, nine years ahead of time. With an ever increasing church family, Hartford has become one of the
largest church congregations in Detroit. Widely known for its music ministry, Hartford boasts of the largest
pipe organ built by a Black church. Choir loft expansions, upgraded audio/video equipment and redesigned
lighting in the Sanctuary are only part of the ongoing renovations.
Dr. Adams’ vision of community outreach led to the establishment of The AGAPE (LOVE) HOUSE for
charitable and community ministries. Formerly housed in properties purchased across the freeway on James
Couzens, The AGAPE HOUSE, now temporarily located in the Church, continues to offer needed social
services that include the Daily Senior Citizens’ Program, Hunger Task Force, Bookstore, Taping Ministry,
Scholarship and College Preparation Programs, Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.
Hartford has purchased commercial real estate along Seven Mile Road, supporting the establishment of fast
food restaurants, such as McDonald’s, Long John Silver and Kentucky Fried Chicken and other businesses.
A Super Kmart was built on church property and employed hundreds of local residents. Today, on the same
church property, Home Depot continues to provide employment and a tax base for the city and state. On
other church properties, Hartford has established the Head Start Agency, a Tutorial Program and the
Hartford Institute for Biblical Studies.
Recently, Hartford, under the leadership of Dr. Adams, purchased 5.5 acres of land located on the former
Meyers Road campus of Lewis College of Business. The design and plans are in progress for the utilization
of this site for Vision ‘007, Dr. Adams’ and Hartford’s greatly expanded vision for community outreach —
an assisted living complex, gymnasiums for seniors and youth, a performing arts auditorium and health
facilities and The AGAPE HOUSE programs.
In 2007, Dr. Adams was selected as the first professor of the Practice of Ethics and of Ministry at Harvard
University. His full teaching schedule at Harvard has not prevented his weekly delivery of soul-saving
sermons at Hartford. Assisting him is his son, the Rev. Charles Christian Adams, who was unanimously
appointed as Hartford’s first Presiding Pastor, thus continuing the Adams’ pulpit legacy. We celebrate and
praise God for the ever expanding ministry of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church.

LOOKING AHEAD
The texts for next Sabbath/Sunday are as follows: Isaiah 40:21-31; Psalm 147:1-11,
20c; 1 Corinthians 9:16-23; Mark 1:29-39.
All of these scriptures declare and demonstrate both the greatness and the goodness
of God. That is an awesome combination: greatness and goodness. During the Civil
War, President Lincoln summoned General Sherman from the battlefield to the
White House for an audience, The gruff, tough, no-nonsense military genius was
annoyed by the President’s summons and was tempted to reject it; however he went
to Washington out of protest and checked-in at the Willard Hotel which is still there,
close to the White House. His meeting with the President baptized his technical
consciousness into the deep moral cause of the Great War between the States, and he
left the White House spiritually enriched, enlightened and transformed. Alone in his
Willard Hotel room, he wrote his memorandum of the meeting with Lincoln: “I have
met with a man who is both great and good. Seldom do these virtues exist together in one person. If a
person is great, usually that person lacks goodness. If a person is good, usually that person lacks greatness.
Tonight I have just met with a man whom God has blessed to possess greatness and goodness in the same
soul.” Such is the holiness of God, not only to be both great and good, but to pour into our souls greatness
and goodness, truth and love, power and humble contrition and restraint.
Isaiah 40:21-31 is Isaiah’s song that sings about the splendor and power of God to the tired, weak and
discouraged Israeli exiles in Iraq or Babylonia. They are on the verge of freedom politically, but they are
also on the verge of despair spiritually. They are so discouraged that they find it difficult to believe that God
has provided freedom for them just around the corner. Isaiah sings to them about God by posing three sets of
questions and answers.
1. Main Question: Who’s In Charge Here? Under the main question, there are four sub questions: “Have
you not known? Have you not heard? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not
understood from the foundations of the earth?” (Verse 21.) Then come the answers “It is he who sits
upon the circle of the earth...who stretches out the heavens...and spreads them like a tent...who brings
princes to naught and makes rulers...nothing.” The same God who rules the vast universe also deposes
false authorities and delegitimizes oppressive political regimes. Slavery is not forever. Oppression is not
endless. Trouble cannot and will not last always.
2. Main Question: “Are there any alternatives to God?.” The sub questions under the main question are
these: “To whom...will you compare me...who is my equal? Who created these?” (Verses 25, 26). This
sub-question refers to the stars. The answers are: God created the stars, made the stars, named the stars,
knows the stars, possesses the stars. None is absent. None is displaced. None is out of divine order. God
is the only source of life and reality. We exist because God lives and creates life.
3. Main Question: “Can we depend on God?” The sub questions are: “Why do you say... ‘My way is hidden
from the Lord, and my right is disregarded by my God?’ Have you not known? Have you not heard?”
The rest of the chapter supplies the answers to exiled Israel and to us. The same God who creates and
rules the universe also empowers the weak, blesses the poor and delivers the oppressed, because God is
both great and good, and uses ultimate Power to defend and deliver those who are weak, tired, poor,
oppressed and discouraged. God never fails. You can depend on God.
Psalm 147 continues Isaiah’s song. It begins and ends with “Hallelujah.” All reality should be framed in
praise and thanks to God. Start every day and end every day with “Hallelujah.”
1 Corinthians 9:16-27. In these verses the Apostle Paul celebrates his freedom under God and his bondage to
God and to all humanity. Here is a profound theological declaration of freedom and bondage written by the
Rev. Dr. Hycel B. Taylor, pastor of Second Baptist Church, Evanston, Illinois and quoted in the most recent

book written by the Rev. Dr. Carlyle F. Stewart, former pastor of Hope United Methodist Church in
Southfield: “As a matter of principle, the African-American slave experience, like the experience of Lazarus
in the New Testament, teaches us that true death is death of the spirit that is separated from its infinite
ground, and true bondage is bondage of the human spirit when it is not free to manifest and demonstrate
deeds and works of infinite spiritual potential. ...There is no loss of freedom like the loss of infinite spiritual
potential, and there is no life of unfreedom like a life where one is unable to consistently manifest and
demonstrate deeds and works of infinite spiritual freedom.”
Please apply this principle to your reading and understanding of Mark 1:29-39 where Jesus plunges and
descends into the chaos of human bondage, brokenness and need, in order to manifest and demonstrate the
mighty power and deathless love of our God! Read in order to demonstrate the goodness and greatness of
God.
Love ya
C.G.A.
