Burnet Primitive Baptist Church is located in the Hill Country of central Texas approximately 35 miles north of Austin, Texas on Hwy 29 just outside the town of Burnet, Texas. This is some of the most scenic country in the state, abounding with lakes, rivers, and hills of splendor. It is also the location of this beautiful assembly of the saints of the Lord Jesus Christ, Burnet Primitive Baptist Church.
For just over forty-three years, this band of believers has been faithfully assembling together to worship the Lord in Spirit and in truth, continuing to contend for the faith once delivered to the saints. The congregation is not large in number, but they are faithful in heart as they meet every first, third, and fifth Sunday.
The Church is not defined by its name. The true Church is identified by the landmarks that are defined by the truth of God’s word. Truth is not relative to what man thinks. Truth is absolute because God is absolute truth. Therefore, truth in doctrine and in practice does matter.
The Burnet Primitive Baptist Church desires to worship in Spirit and in truth. Our Articles of Faith are included on a page in this site. A more detailed explanation of these articles is available upon request. To summarize our doctrinal belief, we believe that God is sovereign and Holy. We hold to these doctrines: Original Sin by Adam’s transgression; Total Depravity of all Adam’s race; Unconditional Election of God’s People before the world began; Limited or Special Atonement; Effectual Calling (Regeneration or New Birth) of every child of Grace; and the Preservation of the Saint to an inheritance reserved in Heaven. Finally, we look forward to the promise of our Lord Jesus’ return to gather every one of his elect people in the resurrection of the just and unjust alike. Not one of the Christ-justified Elect will be lost. The unjustified will be judged according to their works and cast into the Lake of Fire (Hell) forever.
The practice of the Church is also Biblically defined. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church. He placed within her the two ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. He also gave the example in discipleship of the washing of the Saint’s feet. We observe these two ordinances and feet-washing twice a year. Baptism (immersion in water) is defined as not the putting away the filth of the flesh, but an answer of a good conscience toward God. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial to His death.
If these principles interest you, COME AND SEE!
I think you will be pleasantly surprised at the comfort found in the simplicity of worshipping in Spirit and in truth.
