What Primitive Baptists Believe

Primitive Baptists hold to basic Apostolic beliefs. While preferring the King James Version of the Bible, we also recognize that earnest Christians may follow some other interpretations. We adhere to the Reformed system of theology (Calvinism) which follows that of the Apostles. The strength of the Church lies in its loyalty to the Scriptures. Only in the Bible may we find what we must believe about God, His works and His Ways. Only the Bible is a rule of faith and life free from error; "our infallible rule of faith and practice."

There are eight basic Apostolic beliefs:







            The Lord's Supper

Our Articles Of Faith

We believe in one true and living God, The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that these Three are One and are Harmoniously equal in infinite power, wisdom, justice, holiness, mercy, love, and truth.(1 John 5:7)

We believe that God created man good, able to stand but liable to fall, that man fell from this pure estate and brought himself under condemnation and death, and that man is wholly unable to deliver himself from this condition. (1 Cor. 15:22, Rom. 3:10, John 6:44, Rom. 3:10-20, 1 Cor. 2:14)

We believe that God chose a people unto salvation or eternal life and that this choice was eternal, particular, and unconditional. (Eph. 1:4-5, John 10:27-29, John 6:39-44, 2 Tim. 1:9)

We believe that God was in Christ and that by the sacrifice of Jesus, all whom God chose unto salvation were forever redeemed from the curse of the law and made righteous in Him. (Heb. 2:13-15, Eph. 1:6, Col. 2:9-10, Rom. 8:29)

We believe that all who were redeemed by the Son will in time be effectually called by the Holy Spirit, be born again, and be made partakers of the Divine nature. (John 6:37, Eph. 2:1, 1 Cor. 6:14)

We believe that all who are regenerated (effectually called) will be finally saved. Not one can be finally lost. (John 10:28-29, Psalm 37:28)

We believe that the bodies of all men will be resurrected from the grave, that the joys of the righteous will be eternal, and that the punishment of the wicked will be everlasting. (John 5:28-29)

We believe that all who are called of God are under obligation to do good works and that in keeping His commandments there is great reward. (Eph. 2:10)

We believe that baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances of the Church, that believers are the only proper subjects for baptism, and that immersion is the only mode. We also believe that only those who have been properly baptized are admitted into Communion Service, and that the washing of the saint's feet is an example of love and humility which should be practiced by the members of our Church. (Rom. 6:4, Col. 2:12, I Cor. 11:24-29, Acts 8:36-38, John 13:1-17)

We believe that the Church is the highest ecclesiastical authority on earth, subject alone unto God for all her acts, and that her form of government is congregational with each member having an equal voice in all her acts. (Col. 1:18)

We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (of which we consider the King James Translation to be the best) to be the inspired word of God, and that they alone are to govern God's People both in faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)

Our Church Covenant

We do solemnly promise that we will be faithful in the study of God's Word, and in prayer; that we will attend all our church meetings when possible to do so; that we will labor unitedly and zealously for the Master's cause, seeking at all times His glory, and the advancement of His kingdom, and that we will strive daily to crucify the flesh and live such lives that we may be a light unto the world, and show forth the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His Marvelous light.

We promise that we will ever labor for the peace and fellowship so necessary for the best interests of the Church, making whatever personal sacrifice may be necessary; that we will lovingly watch over each other for good, and whenever any shall go astray either in faith or practice, will kindly, lovingly and faithfully seek to save such a one from the error of his way, that he may enjoy richly the blessings of God's House and the sweet joys of salvation, and that none of God's children be lost to our church.

We promise to contribute freely and liberally of our carnal things for the support of the church, and that each will give as the Lord has prospered him that our ministry may give themselves wholly to the work where unto God has called them.

And for Grace to enable us to so live and labor we do most earnestly pray.
