Reimer Road Baptist Church was established in 1961 by Reverend John Powell. The church was established with the goal of giving community members a place to worship God, fellowship with other Christians, and come to know Christ; principles the church still stands on today.
Reimer Road Baptist Church quickly became known for its bus ministry and the "big green" school buses used to bring people from all over the greater Akron area to church on Sunday mornings. The bus ministry is still in operation giving those who may not otherwise be able to get to church an opportunity to participate in the worship and celebration of Christ.
The mission of Reimer Road Baptist Church can be summed up quite simply: to expand the kingdom of God. As a church, we strive to do this through four primary areas: loving God, loving people, sharing Jesus, and making disciples. The decisions we make and actions we take are determined through intentional examination of each of these areas.
At Reimer Road Baptist Church, all are welcome! There are a variety of Sunday School classes available to meet the needs of individuals at all ages, from preschool though adults. Join us Sunday mornings for our 10 o'clock services. See the "Connect" section for more information on the programs available for you and your family.
