First Baptist Church-Pekin
700 S. Capitol St. 
Pekin, IL 61554 
Rich Hamm, Senior Pastor
Chris Garrett, Associate Pastor
First Baptist has been making a difference in their community since 1851. In fact, one of their first benefactors in helping them build their original location was Abraham Lincoln, who cheerfully donated $10 when he learned his old neighbor, Gilbert S. Bailey, was looking for funds to complete a church in Pekin. 
Since that time, they've moved on from the small brick building on Fifth and Elizabeth to their current location on Fourth and Capitol. But, their mission of showing God’s love to people in their community has never changed.
