dc.description.abstract Approximately three miles south of Elkhart in Anderson County Farm Road 319 winds through the peaceful East Texas countryside . Located by a gentle curve , a small red -bricked church guards a large cemetery . The building appears sound but closer inspection reveals the ravages of time . Cracks in the mortar indicate structural weakness . Yet the edifice has not been totally abandoned . Neatly kept grounds imply that the building has been deemed worthy of preservation . The interior of the church is visibly austere . Aged pews rest on a plank floor . This is the third structure in which services have been held on these grounds since 1849 . On the third Sunday morning of each month less than ten participants worship according to the traditions of Primitive Baptists . According to their perception of New Testament worship , the service differs from other Protestant and even Baptist denominations . There is no Sunday School . Congregational singing is without instrumental accompaniment . The pastor , without notes , delivers a sermon heavily punctuated with the doctrines of divine grace and election . en_US
