What We Believe

biblePrimitive Baptists are asked, “What is the difference in Primitive Baptist and Baptist?” The short answer is Primitive Baptist preach and teach the successful Saviour, Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ. He finished the work God sent Him to do. However, for a more detailed answer please consider what is commonly known as the Doctrine of Sovereign Grace. For a deeper understanding of what Primitive Baptists believe

 

Total Depravity

Total Depravity is the total inability of man, not born of the spirit, to do anything acceptable or good in the sight of God (Romans 3:10-18; Romans 8:8-9).

 

Unconditional Election

Unconditional Election is the selection of individuals to eternal life based entirely on God’s sovereign choice and not influenced by any works or actions on man’s part either good or bad.  (Romans 9:11).

 

Limited Atonement

Limited Atonement (Particular Redemption) Christ died only for the elect and by his death redeemed all for whom He died (Matthew 1:21).

 

Irresistible Grace

Irresistible Grace (Effectual Call) is the calling whereby God brings the elect into a vital relationship with Himself by the quickening power of the Holy Spirit (I Cor 1:23-24; John 6:37; I Peter 5:10; Eph 1:19-20; I Peter 3:18)

 

Preservation of the Saints

Preservation of the Saints - All the elect of God shall be kept by God and shall be eternally saved, however, they may walk in darkness and disobedience, losing the joy of their salvation in their timely existence (John 10:27-29).
