About Parksville Baptist Church

Parksville Community History:
The desire for a permanent church building was born in a revival service held under a tent in July 1923. The present lot was secured January 19, 1924. On the 3rd Sunday in August 1924 the new building was used for worship. The debt on the church was paid off on February 23, 1925. Since that time, the surrounding land has been purchased and this made it possible to build additional classrooms, a church parsonage, and on January 24, 2006 a new Family Ministry Center that was dedicated to the be used for the worship of God and for the life building of His Kingdom among men.
