Statement from People’s Baptist Church
We want to praise the Lord for the recent decision by Judge Deever to grant a Temporary Restraining
Order allowing churches to return to worship this weekend. This order not only allows our church to
meet, but allows all churches in North Carolina to decide for themselves when to return to indoor
worship. We as churches should use extreme caution and continue social distancing while striving to be
one of the safest places in our community. Our First Amendment rights are important, and those rights
are now being protected. We ask that you pray for this to continue as we head back to court on May 29,
2020 for the next scheduled hearing. We are hopefully praying that our Governor will change his
position in accord with this Court’s order.
Media Statement for People’s Baptist Church
The lawsuit which is being filed respectfully asks the Governor to clarify and establish
that churches in North Carolina have the protected Constitutional right to meet in-person.
We are asking for the right to be able to meet in-person with appropriate protections to
make people reasonably safe from Covid-19.
We want to show the government and authorities respect and honor, but we are asking for
our faith and our Constitutional rights to be protected.
Please pray for our government officials to honor these requests.

“Becoming a member of People’s Baptist Church was an answer to prayer! While attending East Carolina University, our hope was to continue our walk with the Lord and serve in a local church. During our time here, we can truly say that we were surrounded by people who have a genuine love for Christ.”
“The members of this church have welcomed us with open arms since day one. To any ECU student looking for a church, we would encourage them by saying, ‘When you’re surrounded by people of like faith it doesn’t feel as if your far away from home.’” -Tanisha & Anika
We came for the solid foundation this church has in the Bible and stayed because of the church family.
People’s is a church that loves Jesus, people, and has a heart for missions. Jesus’ love and understanding is in this church. -Brett & Liebe
Shortly after my wife and I were married, God blessed us with 3 beautiful daughters and began to strengthen our family and our walk with him through the ministry of People’s Baptist Church.
How important it is to know that your family is being nurtured by God’s truth week in and week out….to know that your kids are getting God’s word as they grow in faith. God has given us a genuine Christian family all possible from one common denominator – our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. -Brad & Fran
