Welcome to Philadelphia Mission Baptist Church!
Maybe you’re new to church, or just new to the area and looking for a spiritual home. You might be a spiritual seeker who’s just started to investigate Christianity, or a mature Christian looking to grow deeper in your relationship with God. No matter what your background is, we invite you to join us at Philadelphia Mission Baptist Church.
Philadelphia Mission Baptist Church (PMBC) was founded on September 18, 2011. PMBC began as a new church plant of our sending church, Antioch Baptist Church (formerly Berkland Baptist Church – BBC). BBC was founded by Pastor Paul Kim and his wife Rebekah in 1981, with a vision to raise leaders for the 21st century and live our His commandments – love God and let the world know his love by our love for one another as the family of God. At PMBC, we strive to carry on God’s rich history and legacy, and show this love to the community here in Philadelphia and beyond.
Meet our Pastors
Pastor William and Maria Chung
Pastor William and his wife Maria moved to Philadelphia in 2011 to serve as the head pastor of PMBC. They have two children, Timothy and Jamie, and have spent the past 25 years ministering to youth and college students, and also as missionaries to Korea, Los Angeles, and now to Philadelphia. They have a passion and zeal to minister to students and young professionals, raise disciples and future missionaries, and build up the family of God founded on love for God and His Word, and for one another. Pastor William is a bi-vocational minister who also works at Penn as a research manager. He enjoys hikes in the woods and always enjoys a good cup of coffee, so feel free to call him out for some coffee and a chat.
