Walter Evans

FROM THE BIOGRAPHICAL HISTORY OF PRIMITIVE OR OLD SCHOOL BAPTIST MINISTERS BY DAVID MONTGOMERY AND MARK GREEN:
ELDER WALTER EVANS



Elder Evans was born Dec. 23, 1909 in Alleghany County, N.C., the oldest son of John H. and Annice Warren Evans, and has lived in this county all his life. He received a hope in the Lord in November 1930, and united with the Regular Baptists, which was the church of his parents and almost all of his people. When he began preaching and reading God's Word, he found the only doctrine that could be established by the Bible was Salvation by Grace, so he began to preach it with all the power at his disposal; but found it to be rejected by the people he was identified with. But he found the Primitive Baptist Church was the only place that this doctrine was preached and believed, and the people rejoiced in it. So he united with them at the church called Little River, which is a member of the Mountain District Association.

He joined this church in November 1951 and was baptized by Eld. Edd Douglas assisted by Eld. C. B. Kilby. He was ordained in December 1951 and was called in 1952 to serve four churches.

Elder Evans was well known not only as a faithful preacher of the gospel but also as an outstanding singer. His unique style of lining the old hymns was not only loved by the people in his own area but was circulated widely on records and tapes. In 1976, the Library of Congress selected one of his recordings to include in a special album that was released during the Bicentennial year.

Elder Evans and his wife were the parents of nine children living, two children having died in infancy. He passed away on January 12, 1992 at the age of 82.
