Dr. David Peacock (BD, ThM, ThD) has been around the ministry all of his life. His father, Ben Peacock, was a Baptist pastor and evangelist. It was his father who led him to the Lord at age seven. He was not always in the ministry however. His original career was in law enforcement, one in which he made the rank of captain at the Jacksonville sheriff’s office. In 1992 he founded Bible Believers Baptist Church and eventually left his position at the sheriff’s office to pastor full time. Dr. Peacock is also the president of the Bible Doctrine Institute, a correspondence seminary designed to train men in the Bible and biblical preaching.
