The worship service is patterned after the New Testament example. It consists of congregational singing, prayer and preaching. Our singing is acapella because we believe in singing and making melody in the heart to the Lord. (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16).
The bible teaches that parents are to teach their children the scriptures at home (Ephesians 6:4). In the public assembly, the teaching and preaching is to be done by the gospel minister. Primitive Baptists believe in giving as God has prospered and as one purposes in his heart. This should be done cheerfully, not grudgingly. (1st Corinthians 16:2, 2nd Corinthians 9:7, Acts 20:35)
Primitive Baptists believe that God’s children should deny ungodliness and worldly lusts and live soberly, righteously and godly in this present world. They should live unto him that died for them and show forth praises of him that called them out of darkness into his marvelous light. (Titus 2:11-12, Romans 6:1-2, 2nd Corinthians 5:14-15, 1st Peter 2:9)
Daniel 3:15 (KJV)
