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.
We begin each Sunday at 9:45a.m. with Sunday School for all ages. Following Sunday School we move into our main worship service which 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 Petersburg 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. Experienced 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.

As of Sunday, June 21 we resumed having our Sunday morning service in our church. At this time masks are required at all time in our church. We are also having our Wednesday evening prayer meetings at 7:00 P.M. Due to concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) we know that not everyone will want to attend the service so we will continue streaming the Sunday morning service on Facebook for the time being. If you would like to WATCH our service on Facebook just click here. Our service is also being broadcast live locally on FM radio. Also, our website has Pastor's sermons from 1/1/2012 through 12/27/2020 that you can LISTEN to. Just scroll down to the "Weekly Sermons" section and take your pick of sermons you want to WATCH or LISTEN to. Please take advantage of our Facebook page and/or our website.
