Cleveland Baptist Church was established in August of 1958. The church was founded by Dr. Roy Thompson. Dr. Thompson led the church for 37 years. During that time the ministry experienced significant growth. The present auditorium was built in 1968 under Dr. Thompson’s ministry. The Lord used Dr. Thompson in a great way in Northeast Ohio. In 1995 Pastor Thompson transitioned the church to a new pastor, Dr. Kevin Folger.
For the past 15 years Pastor Folger has led the church. Cleveland Baptist has had a rich history having celebrated over 52 years of ministry in the Greater Cleveland area.
