In 1894, several Elders within the Primitive Baptist Church began publishing a periodical made up of theological articles known as "The Pilgrim's Banner." Among its early editors were Elder A.V. Simms, Elder R.H. Barwick, & Elder William H. Crouse. Elder Crouse would later go on to begin publishing a separate periodical known as "The Primitive Herald." In 1918, the two papers were consolidated into a new monthly publication, combining the two names, thus creating "The Banner-Herald." Since its inception in 1918, The Banner-Herald has been published in print form, offering theological articles, church news, & information regarding the goings on within the Progressive Primitive Baptist Denomination. In July of 2015, The Banner-Herald began to additionally publish a digital edition of its publication. Often referred to as the "E-Banner," this new format it now offered to all subscribers at no additional cost.
