Lasserre Bradley Jr.


Lasserre Bradley, Jr. was born in Lexington, Kentucky, May 6, 1935. At an early age he made a profession of faith in Christ and joined the Baptist church where his parents were members. At the age of 13 he felt the call to preach and became active in filling speaking appointments. At age 16 he was called to pastor a church and was then ordained at the church of his membership, which was affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

At age 17, he was called to pastor an independent Baptist Church in Cincinnati,Ohio. While serving this church, he began to see that the doctrine of God's sovereignty and the principles of election and predestination, as taught in the scriptures, were not consistent with many of the things he had been preaching.

When these doctrines were preached on his radio broadcast, the Baptist Bible Hour,which he started in 1953, people wrote stating that he was preaching the doctrine held by Primitive Baptists. After attending meetings among the Primitive Baptists for over a year, he became satisfied that these people held the doctrine and practice of God's word.

In October 1958, a number of the people, who were members of the congregation that he served, followed him in constituting the Cincinnati Primitive Baptist Church. In addition to serving as pastor of this church since that time, he has traveled extensively among the Primitive Baptists throughout the United States. He is editor of The Baptist Witness and continues to conduct the Baptist Bible Hour radio broadcast.

He and his wife Emily have three children, Leanna Tomlinson, Peggy Stewart, Lasserre Bradley III, and ten grandchildren.

FROM DAVID MONTGOMERY: Elder Bradley has written a very brief synopsis on his life and ministry; but to this writer, so much more could and should be said. He has traveled thousands of miles to preach the gospel. He has spent much of his time counseling those in need. Many a young minister, including the writer, has benefited from his sound advice and the example of his life. He has continually put himself last, the Lord first, and others second.
