    This Primitive Baptist is known for that... We all have our beliefs and some are stronger than others but we must also remember we are God's children with our isims and schisms and our doctrinal differences but that doesn't make us enemies. I just pray more brethren would understand that and not make that a bone of contention.

    Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is our Salvation... NOW!... and in Eternity... Daily we need Salvation to be delivered from our daily sins and none on here are better than their brother or sister... That board does not exist... Not in this life!... This Primitive Baptist see God as his ALL in ALL... And I wouldn't have the ability to do anything if it was not heaven sent let alone believe in God on my own.

    Walls I want to thank you for your acknowledgement among our brethren and invite you to visit a Primitive Baptist Church in your area if you have a mind to... If we were more like Walls on this board what a better board this would be... We need to salute those that help us out in our studies no matter what denomination they belong to!... How many on here have ever thanked a Catholic?... Their doctrine maybe in error but they are still children of God... That is the way I feel about it...

    I don't hesitate to salute the Primitive Brethren I have met at all. They have all been kind and courteous, and biblically oriented.

    Cheers to the brethren,

    Jim

    I have never met a primitive Baptist in person.
    I see one of their church buildings occasionally. Maybe they are not strong in Alabama. WE had a governor in Alabama that was a primitive Baptist Preacher and he seemed to be a good man and a great governor.

    I am going to be in Russellville, AR. next weekend, to visit family. I thought to worship at the Point Remove Primitive Baptist Church, next Sunday.

    Not having been in a Primitive Baptist Church I hope that I would not intrude. I have a beard, and wonder if it might be a concern. I know that they do not use musical instruments, and that hymns are a capella. I would appreciate any input.


    A servant of Christ,

    Caretaker,
    I am not a PB, but I am visiting a local PB church and tonight is their communion service and I had some concerns as to whether I would be intruding, along with my family. They have remained courteous and expressed a desire for our presence during their communion service. We are going to attend at 6:00 pm this evening.

    I understand your concerns, but I don't think the beard will matter. I have a mustache and they have never made that an issue.

    Now, in other areas that is a different story :eek:

    God Bless
    Bro. Dallas

    Although today most Primitive Baptist men are clean-shaven, in yesteryear that was not the case at all.

    Visit www.primitivebaptist.org and look at some of the old pictures from ca.1900. You will find that most PB preachers wore a beard. We have had a mix at our church. We had many former pastors without beards. Our last one had a handlebar moustache, and our current one has a moustache and goatee.(He has more hair on his face than on his head. :D )

    All I can tell you about the church is, if it's a true gospel-preaching, bible-believing Primitive Baptist Church they will make you feel right at home.

    Of course, you might want to prepare for a shock. Most first-timers think we're kind of weird. (Don't be scared when everyone comes up to hug your neck. [​IMG] )

    I pray that the Spirit will be present at the meeting.

    God Bless. Bro. James

    P.S. Bro. Dallas, what is the name of the PB church you are visiting? Perhaps I know some of them. We're all like one big family.

    In a couple of ways I am close to Primitive Baptists in my beliefs, and in other ways I am far from PB's doctrinally. Regardless, PB's on this board have treated me with much kindness, and I greatly appreciate that.

    I can second that Bro. Micheal.

    To all the PB brethren [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Though some of your words confuse me,
    and some of your statements lose me,
    I am dumbfounded when I read the word absoluter,
    While perusing my computer,
    I am dispensational, so they won't call me conditional,
    I am limited, perservering by preservation,
    yet I am lost by an unlimited, unknowing regeneration,
    I am sad to say I am in the way left cold,
    while God's children do not know the Shepherd of thier fold,
    I do wish to implore, just how a man can pass through an unknown door,
    I understand the Grace, and the Spirit indwelling,
    But can't see knowledge of Christ's face failing,
    Though all this is true in my heart,
    this one thing I wish to impart,
    I am sure of one thing,
    You are in service to a SOVEREIGN KING!

    Bro. Dallas

    I was in a Primitive Baptist Church service in Indiana and we were singing acapella. That is no problem at all for me. The speaker was asking for favorite songs and many were stated and sang. I was asked specifically if I had a favorite and I stated Psalms 25. Wrong answer. The speaker became frustrated and embarrassed and told me that was not proper or something like that. I cannot quote him it was too long ago (about 4 years ago). I did not understand this.

    Thanks ----Bart “The dueling society was a polite society”.

    Hey, caretaker !

    So, what happened ? Did somebody come up to you with shearers for your beard ? :D :D

    Seriously, Elders Zack Guess and Thomas Mann used to sport full beards. My pastor, Elder Stephen R. Aquino, sports one. I would have, if I could grow one, only place I could grow lots of hair on my face besides the usual moustache is the nose ! :D
    I hope you had a good crowd and sermon !
