At Peninsula Baptist, our approach is simple: We want to love God more, we want to love people more, and we want to love more people. We believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and embrace the belief that one cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven without acknowledging and loving Him. We seek to accomplish these things by placing intentional priority to worship, small groups and outreach. In worship, we connect with God. In Small Groups we connect with others. In outreach, we connect with the community.
Peninsula Baptist Church roots go way back to 1954 in Tacoma, WA. Here is a comprehensive history detailing PBC's past.
1954 - Peninsula Baptist Church had its beginnings when a small group began holding worship services in the old Bethel Lutheran Church building on Point Fosdick under the leadership of Rev. Edwin Coy. A few months later a group acting as trustees met at the home of Ben Packard and discussed beginning incorporation procedures and purchasing the church building and property. They agreed to pay Rev. Coy $25.00 a month to preach and that they would be an independent Baptist church. The name would be - Peninsula Baptist Church. Present were: Roy Harlow, Chairman, Ben Packard, Mr. Gross, Ray Hedman, and Rev. Coy. Charter Sunday was held on April 4, 1954. They purchased the old Lutheran church building on Pt. Fosdick and soon added a Sunday school room at the back. There were problems with the building: no running water, no indoor facilities, very little parking space, and in later years, a leaky roof. The oil heater was so bad they had to replace it immediately. Read more of PBC's history right here!
