The Spiritual Baptist Church is indigenous to Barbados. It was founded in 1957 by Archbishop Granville Williams and its congregation has since swelled to over 10 000.
Members of the Spiritual Baptist Church are known as "tie-heads", in reference to the brightly coloured cloth they wear tied around their heads. New members are baptised by immersion of th entire body in the crystal-clear coastal waters of Barbados.
The Spiritual Baptist Church has a strong African
influence and its services involve much dancing, singing and practicing of rituals.
