The ministry of Petersburg Baptist Church centers around the Word and worship of God. It is our desire to glorify God as we see souls saved and lives changed by the power of the word and God’s Holy Spirit.
All Are Welcome: Come and find the grace of the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who gave Himself as a sacrifice to pay the penalty for our sin. All who seek God’s forgiveness and the blessings of salvation are welcome here.
At Petersburgh Baptist Church, everyone is welcome. If you are an early riser, we have Sunday School for all ages. If you are someone who enjoys sipping their coffee a bit slower, our main worship service begins at 11:00a.m. Whatever your personality, we hope that you will find a home at our church!
Special Note to families with young children: At Petersburgh Baptist Church, we value families. We understand that children are the foundation of our future, and their spiritual growth is important. Bearing this in mind, we have nursery services available during all of our worship services for children age 0 up to 3rd grade. Trained volunteers will provide nurturing, loving care as well as spiritual input for those who are old enough to understand.
Having been led, as we believe, by the Holy Spirit of God to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, in the presence of God and this assembly, most solemnly and joyfully enter into covenant with one another as one body in Christ.
We engage, therefore, by the aid of the Holy Spirit to walk together in Christian love, to strive for the advancement of this Church, in knowledge, holiness, and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines; to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.
We also engage to maintain family and secret devotions; to religiously educate our children; to seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances; to walk circumspectly in the world; to be just in our dealings, faithful in our engagements and exemplary in our deportment, and zealous in our efforts to maintain our bodies as temples of the Holy Spirit.
We further engage to watch over one another in brotherly love; to remember one another in prayer; to aid one another in sickness and distress; to cultivate Christian sympathy and courtesy; to be slow to take offense, always ready for reconciliation.
We promise that when we move from this place we will, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this Covenant and the principles of God's Word.
