OUR MISSION: TO HELP PEOPLE FIND AND FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST

 

OUR VISION

Through Parma Heights Baptist Church, we picture a community of people consistently engaged in life-changing worship gatherings and involved with effective Growth Groups, where spiritual growth, caring for each other, and reaching out together is unmistakable.
 
Individuals joyfully serve in ministries using their unique God-given talents and skills. We also envision a church that consistently identifies and develops leaders for ministry. Through personal evangelism and strategic outreach events, we desire to increase our effectiveness in connecting people to God and PHBC.
 
Together, we strive to become a community of people who compassionately meet the needs of hurting people locally and throughout the world.

This service is led by a worship band comprised of vocalists, electric and acoustic guitar, bass, keys and drums. The experience utilizes modern media and songs primarily written in the last few years.
