Our Beliefs
First Baptist Church of St. Peters is a local gathering of people, who are elder-led, deacon-served, and yet congregationally-governed under the Lordship of Jesus. We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention.

We strive to be Bible-directed, Gospel-believing, God-centered, Jesus-following, Spirit-driven, Grace-oriented, disciple-making, prayer-focused, and people-serving. 

We hold to the Baptist Faith and Message as an expression of Biblical teaching. Essentially, we accept the doctrines that most critically comprise historic Christian Orthodoxy. We affirm the doctrines that were most crucially rediscovered during the era of the Protestant Reformation. We appreciate the distinctives that have been most carefully embraced in our Baptist heritage.
