What is the Church?

As I drive to work each day, I am certain that I pass a dozen or more houses of worship.  There are Southern Baptists, Catholics, Adventists, Presbyterians, Missionary Baptists, Lutherans, Pentecostals, and a host of others. A reasonable question for anyone seeking the identity of the Lord's church is - Which of these numerous denominations most closely resembles the institution the Lord Jesus Christ established? Since each of these churches teaches a distinctly different doctrine and practice, it is obvious to any reasonable person that they cannot all be right. Which church then most closely resembles the doctrine and practice of the apostles?

Primitive Baptists have a unique claim to a doctrine and practice that most closely resembles and directly descends from the original disciples of John the Baptist in the early days of the advent of the Lord Jesus Christ on this earth.

If you are seeking the Lord's New Testament church, I would invite you to consider the claims of the Primitive Baptist Church as represented in the short work, Birthmarks of the Infant Church by Elder Neil Phelan, Jr., pastor of Harmony Primitive Baptist Church in Donaldson, AR.

It is available as an audio book (mp3 format) in three parts on sermonaudio.com:

Birthmarks of the Infant Church 01
Birthmarks of the Infant Church 02
