Peters Creek Baptist Church - Established in 1773

Established in 1773, Peters Creek has enjoyed a rich history of ministry and growth, centered on our allegiance to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. At Peters Creek, believers and seekers discover purpose, promise, hope, and help for living in a daily relationship with Jesus Christ. Rev. John Whitaker, who lived on Peters Creek near the Washington/Allegheny County line, drew up the covenant on November 10, 1773. It was signed by himself and eight other charter members. In 1776, they began to meet more regularly in a log cabin on the east side of the Monongahela River at Elizabeth, but this location proved difficult to get to at times. In 1778, they built a second meetinghouse which was situated on the banks of Peters Creek, from which, in the meeting minutes of January 6, 1781, the church would take its permanent name.
The church's second pastor, Rev. David Philips, stayed with the church 43 years - the longest of any pastor to date. It was he who deeded some of his land to the church, and it is on this land that Peters Creek Baptist Church stands today. Peters Creek has experienced a rich history, as we celebrated 250 years of ministry in 2023. We look forward to the future as we celebrate the past.
