Peterhead Baptist Church - About us

Peterhead Baptist Church is committed to sharing the good news of Jesus with our community.

As a group of Christians of different ages and backgrounds we use the resources that God has entrusted to us to make Jesus known in our town and throughout the world.

At our Sunday Services we gather to worship God, to pray, to celebrate His love towards us and explain the gospel of Jesus Christ by preaching from His Holy Word (the bible).

In the life of our church we use many different ways to share the life-transforming and life-giving message of Jesus. 

Everyone is made most welcome – we’d love to see you meeting with us!


We believe:

  • Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God
  • God has spoken to us clearly through Jesus and the Bible
  • Every person has broken God’s laws (what the bible calls “sin”) and deserves God’s punishment
  • Jesus died on the cross to take the punishment we deserve for our sin, though He was without sin
  • Jesus rose from the dead demonstrating His deity and authority
  • Every person can receive God’s forgiveness only by putting their trust in Jesus
  • This trust (faith) is properly expressed by turning away (“repenting”) from sin and following Jesus daily
  • We believe in the practice of baptising believers by total immersion into the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
  • To be sincere in following Jesus, He must be made Lord of our whole lives
  • For Jesus to be Lord, He must be placed first in all things
  • This is only possible with the help of God the Holy Spirit living within us
  • The gift of the Spirit is given by God when someone becomes a Christian
