"Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life." (1st John 2:24-25)

If a dog asks to go out the door, I have the power to either LET him out or not LET him out. In this passage, John is telling us that is our choice and within our power to either let or not let the spirit of antichrist influence us.

Our relationship with Jesus Christ is based solely upon His work in sovereign grace. We are the sons of God because of God's saving grace, plus nothing. However, our day to day fellowship with God and assurance of His salvation IS conditional upon our choices and actions.

John has given us clear definitions of the spirit of antichrist, and also reminded us that we have been given internal knowledge to help us avoid these dangers. Now, he is telling us to remember the truth! The truth is that Jesus is God's Son. If we remember that, we will avoid the path of the antichrists and false prophets.

When we LET the truth of who Jesus is abide in us and influence us, we will be in regular fellowship with God and fully enjoy our eternal life now!

Welcome

Brentwood Hills Primitive Baptist Church is a community of believers working together to transform our lives to the image of Jesus Christ. We believe it is our duty and privilege to live the gospel of the doctrines of grace in such a way as to edify the families within our church and other children of God in our community. Through regular worship based on strong Biblical principles, fellowship, admonishment, and outreach, we glory in the grace of the sovereign God working in our lives thereby showing the Spirit of God in the world.

Elder Ward Rowell named Pastor

Brentwood Hills Primitive Baptist church is happy to announce that Elder Ward Rowell of Arlington, TX has accepted the church's call to be its Pastor. Elder Ward has been visiting Brentwood Hills regularly this year as we looked for a new pastor. His love, dedication and liberty while preaching to us over the last several months showed the Holy Spirit working.

Elder Rowell has been a member of Old School Primitive Baptist Church for many years faithfully serving under Pastor Mike Montgomery. He was ordained at Houston Primitive Baptist Church.

We are truly thankful for the prayers of our sister churches during this time. It has been a blessing as God continues to be patient and kind to his people in this place. We pray that he will continue with us as we strive to serve the Lord together.

Living in Liberty
