This is a beautiful testimony given by Brother Bruce Black who was baptized into Old Carroll 4 months ago.
Brother Bruce Black was then invited to come forward to share a few words and to testify of his experiences in his journey for Truth. Having been exposed to a number of different religious orders during both his youth and as an adult, Brother Black stated that he is appreciative to now be part of Old Carroll Primitive Baptist Church – – a group that seriously loves God and seeks to be obedient to His Word. In particular, Brother Bruce focused on Jeremiah 6:16 and on the need to see and seek the “old paths” as outline in scripture, which are not only pleasing unto God the Father and Jesus, but also are the paths that lead to peace and rest for the souls of His elect. He emphasized that at Old Carroll he has found a place where the beauty is seen on the inside of the church: where people sing with their hearts, where they worship together as whole families (to include babies and little children), where they express genuine love for each other, where they embrace and care for one another, where all the Word of God and only the Word of God is preached, where they practice a serious and solemn communion service that includes foot washing, where they actively and openly seek fellowship with other churches of like faith and order, and where services sometimes extend for an entire weekend from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon. After giving his testimony, Brother Bruce offered a very sweet and tender opening prayer on behalf of the congregation.
