About Primitive Baptists - GETTING TO KNOW US

Our Doctrinal Heritage
We are baptistic in our faith and believe in the original doctrines of grace. We subscribe to the Calvinist view point which we believe best illustrates the teachings of the Bible.

Why The Name "Primitive?"
In our case the word "Primitive" means original or the first of it’s kind. Other Baptist groups have divided many times since the 1830’s until a great many different Baptist factions are now in existence. We have tried to follow in the original paths, the first doctrine as taught by Jesus Christ and His apostles, hence the word "Primitive" has been used to identify us.

Our Worship Service
Our Praise/Worship services are basically traditional. We believe that prayer, praise and preaching are essential elements of worship, but that the preaching of the Gospel should be the central part of the service.

Why The Title "Elder?"
The title "Elder" is used because the New Testament preachers are referred to as "elders" or "bishops." (See Ephesians 4:11, 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Acts 14:23, Titus 1:5, James 5:14.) The title reverend appears only once in God’s Word and there it has reference to God alone: "holy and reverend is his name" (Psalm 111:9).

Family Oriented
We believe in the importance of the Christian family and try to uphold this essential institution of divine origin. We encourage family participation in Bible Study and Worship because a believing bond between husband-wife and parents-children is essential to the strength of the family, the church, and the nation. Our members and friends are part of our church family.

In Summary
We are a church that loves the Lord Jesus Christ and we love each other. We bask in the warmth of His love for us. There is room for you at Goshen, a good ole country church.
