CLEVELAND BAPTIST MISSION SOCIETY

CLEVELAND BAPTIST MISSION SOCIETY

The CLEVELAND BAPTIST MISSION SOCIETY was formed to evangelize the poor and unchurched in Cleveland in 1869. Begun as the Cleveland Baptist Union, it established missions that later became full-fledged churches and set up Sunday schools to promote religious principles. In 1920 the society merged with the CLEVELAND BAPTIST ASSN.
