I think Basilica of Our Lady of Peace at Yamoussoukro (CΓ΄te d'Ivoire) is the largest church in the world, not Saint Peter's.

I cite from wikipedia: Guinness World Records lists it [the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace] as the largest church in the world, having surpassed the previous record holder, St. Peter's Basilica, upon completion. It has an area of 30,000 square metres (320,000 sq ft) and is 158 metres (518 ft) high. However, it also includes a rectory and a villa (counted in the overall area), which are not strictly part of the church. It can accommodate 18,000 worshippers, compared to 60,000 for St. Peter's. Nevertheless, I believe, that neither the number of worshippers nor the fact that it is used for other small things too is enough proof on St Peter's behalf.
