May God bless this work to the edification of the body of Christ!


We are very commonly asked by others “What Is A Primitive Baptist?” Well, my short answer to that question is usually something like this: We as Primitive Baptists believe that Jesus finished the work of eternal salvation on the cross apart from any action or work of man, and we are saved to heaven by Jesus Christ’s blood and by God’s sovereign grace alone. We worship in a simple manner in accordance with the New Testament scriptures; we sing, we preach, we pray, and we fellowship. We hope you will come and worship with us as well.

Actually, there are many distinctives of the Primitive Baptist Church that separate us from the general marketplace in Christianity. In this book and corresponding sermons below, we consider in-depth the identifying marks of the Primitive (Original) Baptist Church from the scriptures.
