" The Golden Chain of Eternal Salvation "
  Michael Gowens

photos/2-888686189.jpg This short clip is a powerful explanation of God's decree of salvation for His elect people.

Commenting on a very popular text from Romans 8:29-30, Brother Michael shows the importance of God's will in eternal salvation. This clip is from a sermon he preached in 2004 at Lexington, "Thy Will Be Done." At that time he was Pastor of Lexington PB church, Kentucky.

In the full sermon you can hear the differences between God's eternal decree's and His will regarding sanctification and providence. The full sermon was also referred to by Brother Michael as "I Surrender All."

Michael Gowens is the Pastor of Bethel Primitive Baptist Church in Calabash, North Carolina.

" Romans 10:1-3 "
  Obey Ndalima

photos/2-315265258.jpg ELDER OBEY NDALIMA died on April 1st, 2009 in Kenya, Africa, less than 5 months since delivering this sermon. Pictured with his wife, Sister Mary Mwakalonge, who passed away on December 7, 2009.

Elder Obey Ndalima pastored 2 Primitive Baptist churches in Tanzania and Kenya, Africa. The Lord blessed his labors with some 400 members amongst these churches. He said in this sermon, “Light has shined in Africa.”

This sermon was delivered on November 9th, 2008, at the Vestavia Primitive Baptist church in Birmingham, Alabama where Elder Sam Bryant pastors, and where brother Obey first joined on May 16th, 2004.

This sermon starts with Brother Obey leading the church in song, singing 'Rock of Ages' in Swahili. He shares with us his earnest desire that his people of Africa would be saved from ignorance. He said, “Ignorance is a bad thing…it will put you in many bondages.” He said, “When you first see the word ‘save’ in the Bible you have to ask yourself - saved from what?” He learned that ignorance will not keep you out of heaven but keep you in darkness of unbelief.

In other words, when Paul says his heart's desire is that Israel might be saved there are 2 important questions one must ask, Who is the Israel he speaks of and What salvation is under consideration?

Brother Obey relates some of his experience at his ordination service as well as the first impressions to join the church at Vestavia.

The Lord blessed his efforts in bringing this message from Romans 10:1-3 and I hope it will be a blessing to you today.

" Baptism, What is it ? 08/28/75 "
  S.T. Tolley

photos/2-979787450.jpg Elder S.T. Tolley was the former editor and publisher of the once popular 'Christian Baptist' out of Atwood,Tennessee. Brother Tolley has been one of the most influential ministers during his preaching days because of his God-given spiritual ability to teach the Bible. When you hear him preach you are hearing clear Scriptural exegesis and Biblical church history all in one. It is that perspective that enables the listener to get a well balanced explanation of the subject.

Did you know that the Bible commands us to be baptized a certain way? He gives us the reason why the translators kept the Greek word, un-translated, in our King James Bible. He describes what that word baptize means in detail.

The sermon is divided into two major divisions: what is baptism and secondly, what is it for, or what does it do for you.

He looks at the baptism of our Lord and raises points concerning what was becoming of Christ to be baptized. Baptism he said, "did not make Jesus Christ the Son of God, but He being baptized fulfilled all righteousness."

He also speaks on Acts 8:36 concerning the Eunuch’s baptism in water. And draws the distinction that the subject is baptism, not the water. Also, he makes reference to Acts 2:37-38 and one of the most misunderstood texts in the Bible, Mark 16:16.

He will answer the questions about rebaptism and many other points will be raised concerning this subject.

If you want Biblical reasons why baptism is immersion then this sermon is one to hear.

Preached at Mt Carmel Church in BelAir, Md.on August 28th, 1975.

Brother Tolley passed from this life on December 23, 2015. Please visit the Minister's Section to read his Bio.
