[OS X TeX] \documentclass undefined

I have been using LaTeX for years under Debian Linux with teTeX. I
recently moved to OS X and I am having trouble getting my thesis to
compile. Whenever I try to run 'latex' on my fille it tells me that
'\documentclass' is an undefined control sequence. As far as I know
this is what happens when you try to run plain TeX on a LaTeX file.
Just in case there was something in my custom cls file I created a
small sample, shown below, and I compiled it with latex. The same
result occured and is also shown below.
Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem?
Thanks in advance,
THis is a test
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.20a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)
output format initialized to PDF
entering extended mode
! Undefined control sequence.
