What We Value, Believe, Cherish & Confess

  • The Bible is the true Word of God.
  • We are saved by grace through faith, through Christ's death and resurrection.
  • God blesses us, strengthens us and leads us through Word and Sacrament ministry.
  • The Church is the gathering of believers who worship and confess Christ and share in life's joys and struggles.
  • We confess our faith in the historic creeds of the church.

Our History

St. Peter's was founded in 1910.  We are a sister congregation of Christ Lutheran Church in Peoria, IL.   We believe in the triune God and that we are forgiven freely by God's grace through Christ's death on the cross and resurrection. Our God sustains this faith through preaching and teaching of the Word and the two sacraments- baptism and the Lord's Supper.   

St. Peter's Church Council

St. Peter’s Church Council gathers ten times a year on the 4th Tuesday of each month, except in May and November, months where there are congregational assemblies.  The church council functions as St. Peter’s board of directors and gives guidance and governs the ministry efforts of St. Peter’s Lutheran church. It consists of ministry directors of St. Peter’s ministry boards, St. Peter’s foundation and other arms of St. Peter’s ministry.
