The Purpose of Heritage Baptist Church of Willoughby
Making and Equipping disciples of Jesus Christ to glorify God by fulfilling every aspect (Matthew 28:18-20) and area (Acts 1:8) of the Great Commission through the greatest commandments (Matthew 22:36-40). Our focus will always be to reach the lost world with the gospel while living the abundant Christian life (John 10:10).
Reaching Beyond our Jerusalem
America has lost its heritage as a Christian nation, we believe because local churches have failed in their mission to reach beyond its Jerusalem into Judea and Samaria. Our mission is to reach America by turning every Judea and Samaria into Jerusalem so that no one would be outside the reach of a true New Testament local church, just as the Lord intended.
Meet our Pastor
After being born again on April 11th, 2011, Pastor Suglio surrendered to God’s call to serve in full-time ministry in 2015. He attended the Heritage Baptist Institute while serving on the pastoral staff of the Cleveland Baptist Church in Brooklyn, Ohio. Frank graduated and was ordained in June of 2019. He then followed the call of God on his life to begin Heritage Church Planting, a ministry focused on starting and strengthening churches.
Frank and Rebecca have been married since 2005 and they have served in the ministry since 2016, along with their two children Judy (16) and Nino (14). They were born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. God has given them a burden to see New Testament Baptist churches started in Northeast Ohio and has clearly led them to the beautiful town of Willoughby. They are looking forward to everything that the Lord has planned for the church.
