Beginnings of Pacific Baptist Church
Sunday Feb 24th 2013 – Charter Service under Pastor Sam Marasco. Church held first services Aug 26th, 2012. The church was originally located in the Shipman Industrial Park and then transitioned to a church building on Kinoole St. in Hilo.
Early Ministries Under Pastor Kroll
Pastor Kroll was called to become the new pastor June 16, 2014.
Early in the ministry, we are able to have a church van that would bring children and adults to church every week. As we transition to our new location and build our new building, we would like to restart the van ministry as it is a huge need in our area. Many are without transportation.
Teen ministries are vital to a church. In 2022, we look to reestablish our teen and youth ministries.
Home school Co-op
PBC offered a home school co-op ministry for parents that wanted to home school their children but were unable because of work schedules. Students would bring their work up to the church during the week, complete the work in a supervised school environment and grow in their studies. As the need dissipated, the ministry paused. Should the need arise again, this ministry could be started back up at any time.
Faith Bible Institute
PBC also participated in the video based Bible institute called Faith Bible. Faith Bible is a 3 year learning course set a teaching the fundamentals of the Bible.
