Church's Mission

Petersburg Bible Church exists to glorfy and enjoy God together as we form mature followers of Jesus Christ who reach out to others in Petersburg, Southeast Alaska, and around the world. 

• We are Biblical in faith in that we adhere to the basic teachings of salvation by faith alone, through grace alone, by Christ alone to the glory of God alone.

• We are Independent in government in that we are not controlled by an ecclesiastical body outside our own membership. The ruling power of the church resides with its elders, as guided by the Holy Spirit.

• We are Evangelistic in character, and we endeavor to speak the Good News of Jesus Christ to our own generation. 

We "reach them to teach them" and then "teach them to reach them."

• We are Educational in approach, and we seek more than decisions for Christ. Our call is to make disciples for Christ. Our concern is for a membership that acts out of conviction not mere convenience.

• We are Missionary in spirit, and we take seriously Christ's command to go into all the world and make disciples. 

We desire to equip, send and support missionaries to proclaim Christ and teach Christ's disciples to obey all that Christ commanded.
