Progressive Primitive Baptists

The Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church is a Progressive Primitive Baptist Church.

The Progressive Primitive Baptists are a Christian denomination comprising 95 churches located in nine US states and one church in Haiti.

The denominational name consists of three parts.

They are identified with the Baptist tradition as they baptize only believers who have made a profession of faith and they only baptize by immersion.

The word Primitive in the name refers to their adherence to the original principles of their Baptist ancestors, the Particular Baptists of England. Their articles of faith are based on the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.

The word Progressive refers to their inclusion of musical instruments, bible studies, youth camps, mission and charity organizations that are rejected by other factions of Primitive Baptists, often referred to as "old line", "old school", or "hard shell". (From Wikipedia)
