PREFACE
Material presented in this book has been published repeatedly in separate articles during aperiod of 40 years; in response to numerous requests they are here brought together in onecover. No new doctrine are set forth here, but only those precious truths concerning Christ'schurch and baptism which are plainly taught in the New Testament.Disbelievers of the scriptures have objected to the strictly scriptural interpretations here given,but in 40 years they have been able only to reject, never to refute. This is not surprising, sinceBaptists (by whatever name called), for 19 long centuries before the doctrine came down tome, had successfully defended the truth with no other weapon than the sword of the Spirit,the word of God, though at the cost of untold millions of lives whose blood was shed by theirpersecutors.But God has always raised up new believers in the old faith to bear a testimony through Histrue churches that He has promised will continue until Jesus comes again.To the two main parts of this book, treating the New Testament church and baptism, I haveadded an appendix containing a specific defense on each subject against the faithless attacksof so called "liberal" Baptists. The chief liberality of religious "liberals," I have noticed, is thatthey feel free to make liberal denials of God's word.For any typographical or other errors in this work I take full responsibility, and can plead noexcuse except ordinary human frailty. For the truth I offer no apology, but plead with eachreader to accept the word of God by which in the end we shall all be judged.Lexington, Ky. 1977 ROSCO BRONG
FORWARD
This is the first of Brother Brong's books that we are publishing. "Christ's Church andBaptism" was published some years ago and has been out of print for some time. BrotherBrong has gone to be with the Lord. A faithful man that stood for the truth of God's word. Hecould preach from the Hebrew or Greek or English Bible.The author, Dr. Rosco Brong, is well qualified to write upon these subjects. Having receivedhis B.A. Degree from Georgetown College in 1950, his M.A. Degree from the University ofKentucky in Ancient Languages in 1952, Doctor of Divinity Degree from Lexington BaptistCollege, doing further graduate work at the University of Kentucky and the University ofMichigan, nearly thirty years pastor of Baptist churches in Kentucky, on the faculty ofLexington Baptist College since 1952 and Dean since 1954, 1 feel that this author has dealt ina scriptural and reasonable way with these subjects.Some of the Lord's churches have had a falling away from the truth. They no longer stand forwhat Baptist have always stood for. We pray that Brother Brong's books will be used to bringsome of God's churches and children back to the old paths wherein is the good way. We are
 
told to "Earnestly contend for the faith which was once (for all) delivered unto the saints."Brother Brong did that until his death. His works follow him and we trust the Lord will use hiswriting to glorify the Lord and edify his people.Al GormleyPastor Bryan Station Baptist Church
Part One -OUR LORD BUILT HIS OWN CHURCH, AND IT IS STILL DOING BUSINESS FOR HIM
"
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it 
." (Matt. 16:18.)Christ's church was built upon Himself. "
That Rock was... Christ 
." (I Cor. 10:4.) "In the LordJehovah is the Rock of ages." (Isa. 26:4, margin.)... "
Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ 
." (I Cor. 3:11.) "
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God; and are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone 
." (Eph. 2:19-20.)
Built Upon Christ
The word Peter means a stone.
It means a little stone, not a big rock.
The Catholic church,which did not exist until hundreds of years after Peter's death, falsely claims to be built uponPeter,
and by that very claim denies that it is Christ's church
, because the Bible teachesthat Christ's church is built upon Himself.Peter never suggested that God's people or God's churches were built upon Peter. Hepreached that men should turn to Christ. He knew that Christ was not only the foundation butalso the corner stone of His church:"
As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: if so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious, ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture,
Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient,
the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, and a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence 
, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed 
." (I Pet. 2:2-8.)
Built In Christ
Christ's church was built upon Christ as the foundation Rock; and it is built in Christ as the
