T.E. Majors



I was born May 24, 1900, in Bibb Co., Ala., to William F. and Sara Ann Majors. I was married to Laura Ann Robinson on Oct. 3rd but she did not know anything about Primitive Baptists and it was many years before we attended services. But in 1921 I saw that I was a poor sinner and felt like hell was my doom. One day while I was working in a coal mine something happened to me and I felt that I was the worst sinner in the world and felt that I had lived such a sinful life that God could never forgive me.

But something happened and I felt that God had forgiven me and from that time until now I have been a poor mourner and have wondered how God could save a poor sinner like me. In 1924, I was visiting a New School Baptist Church and my wife and I joined them but we did not stay with them very long as I did not believe like they did. I visited a Primitive Baptist Church by the name of Pilgrim Rest and while the minister was preaching I thought that someone had told him, how I felt, as he seemed to be preaching to me. On the Sunday morning in November, I joined and was baptized in December and from then, I sure have been happy.

In 1938 I felt a great impression to talk to the Lord's little children and the church licensed me and in 1940, I was ordained to the full work of the ministry and was called to serve my home church which was Hopewell near West Blocton, Alabama. I served them for a short time and in 1950 I had a desire to move to Maryland, which we did, and put our letters at Columbia Church at Burtonsville, Md. and I was called to serve Greenwood Church in Virginia.

In 1955, Elder Dove, who was my pastor, was on his way home from a Union Meeting and passed away. The church called me and I served them for ten or eleven years. In 1955, I was called to serve Happy Creek Church at Front Royal, Virginia. We moved there and stayed until 1973. I served Battle Run and Grace Church for some time. In October 1973 we moved back to Birmingham, Ala. as I thought it would be better to be near most of our children. It was the most wonderful part of our lives to live in good old Virginia.

NOTE: Elder Majors departed this life on March 3, 1976.
