Our History

 

Peniel Baptist Church was constituted in July of 1852 as a Baptist Church. In January 1868, the church began raising funds for a new church building. In May of 1871, the name "Peniel Baptist Church" was adopted (see Genesis 32:30). Dr. Billy Graham was baptized in Silver Lake near Peniel Baptist Church on December 4, 1938. The church ordained him to evangelistic ministry on January 14, 1939. On February 20, 1967, Peniel Baptist Church dedicated its present Sanctuary and education building. The old church BUILDING, now known as The Chapel, was moved to its present location a year later. In August 1971, Peniel Baptist Church instituted the Peniel Baptist Academy Day Care Center and Kindergarten. In 1982, an Academy school building was dedicated which now houses preschool through 12th grade. On October 12, 2008, a new high school educational building was dedicated. This building is built so a family life center type building can be added to it in the future.
