About Cleveland Baptist Church

Where We Stand

Cleveland Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental and premillennial Baptist church.  We use the King James Version of the Bible in all of our Sunday school classes and from the pulpit. “Preaching Christ, Reaching our World” is our mission statement.  We desire for the Gospel to be proclaimed both here and around the world.  What our community, our city and our world needs is Jesus Christ. We believe that tomorrow’s future begins with the teaching and training of today’s youth.  Our desire is for each child to know Christ personally and to increase that relationship through a deeper understanding of God’s Word.  As adults, the believer should continue to mature in his faith. We believe the Lord’s return is soon and the believer needs to watch for His coming.  Each service has soul-stirring music and Spirit-led preaching.  We believe the Bible is the standard for conduct in this sin-filled world and we take seriously its command to come out from the world and live a separated life. In today’s world of contemporary Christianity, we strive to practice a godly walk.  We do not compromise with the ecumenical movement or any other organization that seeks to tear down the foundations of our faith.

Our History

Cleveland Baptist Church was established in August of 1958. The church was founded by Dr. Roy Thompson which he led 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 almost 24 years Kevin Folger led the church as Pastor. On June 2, 2019 Pastor Pete Folger, was installed as the third pastor of Cleveland Baptist Church. Cleveland Baptist has had a rich history having celebrated over 60 years of ministry in the Greater Cleveland area.
