     The Peter’s Creek Christian Church in Washington Co. was established in 1827, by Alexander Campbell.  Campbell and a number of the members of the Peters Creek Baptist Church started the new congregation in 1827, which became the Peters Creek Christian Church. From the records of the church, Alexander Campbell became the pastor in 1826 and remained in the pastorate until the of “all believers communion” arose. When the Baptists would not accept others in communion, Campbell walked out of the church one Sunday morning, and others believing as he did, went with him to form a congregation of the Disciples of Christ.

     “The Christian Church in Peters Twp near Library Pa know as “The Cross Road Church; The Campbellite Church”, or the Peters Creek Christian Church” was an off shoot of the agitation in the Baptist Church of Western Pa from 1827 to 1830.A deacon in the church, David Riggs, a heretic and disturber of the Church, was disowned by the church and has now given aid to the Christian Church, and has been taken in by the Campbellites. “David Newmyer helped in the formation of the new congregation.”
