Moriah Primitive Baptist Church


Ernie Bryson and his wife Cheryl

It is an honor and a privilege to serve the Lord's people.

My prayer is that all I do at and for Moriah Church will benefit them and glorify our Heavenly Father.

The Ministry

I hope, by the Grace of God, that my Ministry will be one of simplicity.

It is my hope and prayer that I can present the Bible in a way that those from five to ninety five can understand and embrace it.

I pray that God will continue to bless Moriah Church with growth, both physical and spiritual.

I pray for continued opportunity to serve and minister to the saints of God for as long as they will have me.

If I can but impart one pearl of truth to God's people, I pray that it be this simple statement.

Don't stop believing.

1 John 5:5


The Vision

My hope and vision for Moriah Church is to take her beyond her walls.

Her members have ministered to one another and those that are without for many years.

I hope to continue these efforts and be a light in the community of Colbert and beyond.

The Church is not just a place for the well, but for the sick.

It is a place for those in need to come and find the support and comfort of God's people.

I pray that, by the Grace of God, Moriah's light will compel those in darkness to come in and find rest for their souls, in the finished work of Christ.

The Message

The message of the Primitive Baptist Church can be found in one statement made by our Lord.

"It is finished".

The "bookends" of our doctrine our simple.

The Angel told Joseph in Matthew 1:21, "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS; for He shall save his people from their sins."

With this promise, Christ proclaims on the cross, in John 19:30, "It is finished".

The promise of saving is complete.

With the finished work of Christ as a back drop, we then proclaim another promise given to God's people.

In 2 Chronicles 7:14, it reads,

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways;

then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land".

The finished work of Christ is our rest. The commandment of good work is our purpose.

That is the message.

My Fathers in the Ministry

Pictured below are two men that have been invaluable in my life.

Both have taught me to love and respect the Word of God.

Both have taught me to "rightly divide the Word of Truth".

Elder Dolph Painter (left) has taught me to be jealous over God's people. 2 Cor 11:2

Elder Eddie Whidby (right) has taught me to be a "thinker" in the service of God. 2 Tim 2:7, Heb 3:1

I thank God for these and other ministers that have taught, encouraged and corrected me through the years.

I pray my ministry will be a reflection of the person of Christ and the efforts of God's ministers which I have known.
