A CHRIST-CENTERED CARING CHURCH ORGANIZED AS THE FIRST AFRICAN BAPTIST CHURCH IN AUGUST 1805
The Peoples Baptist Church of Boston is a community of believers who proudly profess Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. We accept the Word of God as our only authority in the church and in our private lives.
Our church believes that the Gospel speaks to the human condition, and is relevant to every aspect of one’s life. Our primary mission is to help men, women, and children have a wonderful relationship with Jesus Christ and to nurture them in their faith.
Our members are drawn from the Greater Boston area, and represent every aspect of life. Here at the Peoples Baptist Church of Boston, our style of worship is rooted in the black religious tradition and is designed to be spiritually uplifting, intellectually challenging, and socially relevant.
Since our establishment on Beacon Hill as the first African Baptist Church August 8, 1805, we have been faithfully serving Boston’s African-American community.
