Introduction

When a person first visits a Primitive Baptist Church, he will notice a simple worship service, which consists of hymns, prayer and preaching. The absence of musical instruments, choirs, Sunday Schools and other auxiliary functions or attachments is in keeping with the New Testament pattern of worship.

The Lord’s Church is under the authority of her husband and head, Jesus Christ, and should be submissive to him, in all things (Ephesians 5:23-25). Therefore, the church should not desire to be like the world, (I Samuel 8:19-20, Romans 12:2) but rather be satisfied with the fatness of the Load’s house (Psalms 36:8)

The following is a brief description of what Primitive Baptist believe, concerning the doctrine of the Bible, which includes the fundamental principles of salvation by grace and the practice of the church.
