Primitive Baptist Church in Arlington Texas
Who Are We?
Baptist website is an internet outreach to the hungry children of
God where ever they may be in the world. Blessed are those who hunger
and thirst after righteousness, for they shall be filled. Jesus told the disciples to go
and preach the Gospel. He did not specify how to go. If He had said, Go
on a donkey, then we would all have to go on a donkey. If he had said,
Go on a bicycle, then we would all have to go on a bicycle. Since he did
not specify how we are to go, we have liberty to ride in
automobiles, airplanes and other modes of transportation in order to
preach the gospel.
We also feel impressed by The Lord to go. However the
method we feel impressed to utilize is the electronic method. Just
20 years ago this method of communication was in it infancy. Since that
time it has matured into a very rapid means of communications. And it
turns out that this is where many of Gods people are spending their
time. On the internet. It makes sense to go, where the people are.
Therefore we are going electronically over the internet. This
being the reality, we are making ourselves available to God's children
wherever they be in the world but not for the same reasons that most
Christian evangelical organizations do. We are going, as The Lord
commands, but for a much different reason than others.
scripture tells us that...
wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every
kindred, and tongue, and
people, and nation;...Rev 5:9
Some charge us
unfairly that we teach that Primitive Baptist are the only ones
who will live in heaven. This is not true. As the above stated scripture
clearly tells us, God has redeemed a people out of every
kindred, and tongue, and
people, and nation. Perhaps many may even
be laboring under a false religious system, and may never experience
gospel conversion. But we know without doubt that all of Gods elect will
be born again thru the life giving voice of the Son of God (John
5:25) at some point between conception and death. (Luke 1:15, & Luke
Primitive Baptist believe that heaven will be populated with thousands
of millions from among mankind, (Genesis 24:60, Hebrews 11:12 & Mark
10:45) we know that only a few will find the church and the truth of God
in this life and will be able to walk the strait and narrow way which
leads to life in the kingdom of God. (Matthew 7:14 & Matthew 22:14)
Primitive Baptist are
not attempting to
help God populate heaven, we believe Jesus did a
prefect work in that regard. His grace is effectively implanted in each
one of His elect at the moment of regeneration. This very act brings
eternal life to the individual and makes him a fit subject for heaven.
Nor are Primitive Baptist attempting to get people to know The Lord, because scripture
says in Hebrews 8:11;
not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying,
Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from
the least to the greatest.
As we go, our aim
is to instruct, encourage, and feed those who have been taught by God to
know Him, (John 6:45, Matt 16:17) with knowledge and understanding
of How great things God has done for them, and what His loving
instruction is to guide them into faithful obedience. The gospel does
not give eternal life, but brings life and immortality to light and is
made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:... (Romans 16:26 &
2 Timothy 1:10)
is the true purpose of the church and the gospel ministry.
The Bible is Sheep
food, plain and simple. It does not make children of God. Therefore we
go to feed His sheep.
