Bethany Primitive Baptist Church is located 5 miles W. of Ecru, MS on Hwy 346. (Mailing address: 4905 Hwy 346–Pontotoc, MS 38863) This church was organized in 1919 and has been endeavoring to worship according to New Testament pattern since its inception. We strive to show the love of God to each other and everyone we encounter. The Spirit of the Lord is prevalent because the people have been praying for that Spiritual manifestation. The truth is paramount in all our worship services. We meet each Sunday at 10:30 when singing begins to worship the Lord in song. Preaching usually begins about 11:00 and after the brethren have prayed for the services, being directed by the Spirit of the Lord. We believe that the only rule of faith and practice is the inspired word of God and attempt to follow the commandments thus revealed to the best of our God given strength. Our Pastor is currently Elder Larry Wise who has served the church full time (every Sunday) since 1991 and twice a month for ten years prior to that. We invite all to come and see a church that worships as close to the New Testament pattern as possible. God bless you is our prayer.
