What We Believe

Episcopalians believe that praying shapes believing. Our prayers include words and music, both ancient and modern. Through prayer, our spirits our fed and we are formed in Christ's image. Strengthened by prayer, we serve the world.

Words matter, scripture matters, asking questions matters. Being together to share holy words and music is more important than dogma, or doctrine. We expect spiritual growth in faith to be strengthened by inquiry and doubt. 

Central to our faith journey are vows we make at baptism and renew frequently. We vow to seek and serve Christ in all persons, to love our neighbors as ourselves, to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being.

What We Do

The transforming love of Christ compels us to act in the world, to bring God’s care to people in need through loving service. Along with other churches, St. Peter’s helps to serve the Community Meal, a full dinner served six nights a week free of charge to anyone who is hungry. Members of our congregation provide food and serve the meal every other month. We also collect items for the Bettendorf Food Pantry and Family Resources. Each year, members of our community participate in the Crop Walk, an event designed to raise awareness about food scarcity in our area. Other opportunities to serve occur throughout the year.
