My name is Nick Peters. My wife, Allie, and I are the founders of Deeper Waters Christian Ministries. We are sister ministries with Tektonics, the ministry of J.P. Holding. We are also both diagnosed with Asperger’s. Our ministry is designed to answer questions, make disciples, encourage marriage, and help reach those who are disabled, particularly those on the autism spectrum.
“So why should I give you any credibility?”
I have a Bachelor’s from Johnson Bible College in Bible and Preaching. I have been largely self-taught in apologetics until I was a student for a season at Southern Evangelical Seminary. Right now, I am preparing for my Master’s in New Testament at Northwest University in South Africa.
“Do you have any other reasons why I should listen to you?”
Just some personal recommendations:
“I count Nick Peters as a friend of mine and believe the ministry of Deeper Waters challenges Christians and non-believers alike to think through the implications of their worldview. Nick’s approach is rigorous and logical but remains Christ-centred at heart. We need people like Nick, prepared to “stick their neck out” to engage with the kinds of questions many people are asking today.”
“The life of Nick Peters itself is a testimony of God’s favor and power. God has given this brilliant young man a passion for using the mind–which is often neglected by Christians–to reach the seeker and the doubter. He is resilient, focused, and disciplined. I believe many will be impacted positively for God’s kingdom through his servant, Nick. And I am proud to call him

“I have known Nick Peters for a couple of years and, in spite of several serious physical ailments, he excels at graduate level research, writing, debate/dialogue, and evangelistic efforts with those of other faiths. I commend his ministry.”
Gary R. Habermas
Distinguished Research Professor, Liberty University
“I have known Nick for many years and have had the privilege of having him on staff as a voluntary moderator/leader in a theology debate forum which ministers to all segments of society. He worked his way into upper leadership due to both his personal character and apologetics ability. I have always known him to conduct himself in a Christian and God-honouring way and could recommend him for apologetics work without reservation.”

“I have known Nick Peters for several years and have been featuring his contributions as a guest writer on the Tekton website for nearly that entire time. He is also my ‘go to’ person for several important topics that are outside my scope, such as arguments for the existence of God and theism as a basis for morals. I find that he is able to succinctly and masterfully address these topics in a thorough and competent way. His talents are such that I have deigned to have him
as a Tekton ministry partner, and I cannot recommend him enough.
James Patrick Holding
Founder of Tektonics Ministries
“In the years that I have known Nick Peters, my respect and appreciation for him has only grown. In my opinion, Nick is a meticulous thinker, an astute apologist, and an effective communicator. I have always found his arguments to be logical and his positions Biblical.
Let me also say that Nick exhibits another quality sometimes missing in apologetics- he has a tender heart and great “people skills.” I believe that his kind demeanor is reflective of a life yielded to Christ and led by the Spirit. Nick Peters is an example to all who aspire toward apologetics and evangelism.”

“What is it that you believe?”
We believe that there is one God who eternally exists in three persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We hold to the doctrine of the Trinity as described in the early Christian creeds. We hold that God is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, immutable, simple, and eternal.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh, the incarnate deity, who was born of a virgin and lived a sinless and perfect life. We believe that he is a distinct person from the Father and the Spirit. We hold that he was 100% human and 100% deity.
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the gift given to us upon trusting in Christ for our salvation. We hold that the Holy Spirit is a person just as the Father and the Son are.
We believe in the death, burial, and physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day. We hold that this was the demonstration of Him being the Messiah that God sent into the world to save us from our sins and salvation is found in no other name but the name of Jesus.
We hold that the 66 books of the Protestant old and new testaments are authoritative for Christian faith and practice and no other books come with such divine authority. We hold that the manuscripts are inspired and inerrant in the original documents.
We believe in salvation by grace through faith. Salvation cannot be earned by any work that we do and it is the gift of God.
We hold to the future return of Jesus Christ physically that will happen alongside of the resurrection of the dead, the righteous to everlasting joy and the wicked to everlasting torment.
