About Us

Bethel Baptist Church is a local fellowship of believers confessing Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. Our mandate given by our Lord is clear: “Go…make disciplesbaptizing themteaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19, 20).

Our mission is to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord and reach people for Him. We believe that Jesus Christ is exalted through the expositional preaching of His Word and genuine Spirit-filled worship.

We aim to “present everyone mature in Christ” (Colossians 1:28). Disciples are made through faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are grown through fellowship within the local church. By God’s grace we seek to be ambassadors for Christ, persuading sinners to be reconciled to God by declaring that Jesus Christ has “made peace through the blood of His cross” (Colossians 1:20).

We trust you’ll discover God’s grace among us. Our prayer is that we’ll live up to His name.

    Biblical preaching demands biblical listening, which requires more than just being a passive, or worse, critical spectator on Sunday mornings. In this message we begin exploring three ways to be a preaching participant and not merely a sermon spectator.

    How to Listen to Biblical Preaching – Part 1

    Luke 8:1-21
    In Luke 8:18 Jesus warns the listener, "Take care then how you year, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away." Jesus places a high priority on the role of the listener when God's Word is proclaimed. In fact, Jesus links one's hearing (or receiving) God's Word to the condition of the heart. In this passage we learn of three commonly wrong conditions of the human heart and one right condition necessary to hear God's Word.

    What is Biblical Preaching?

    1 Timothy 4:13; Nehemiah 8:8
    Preaching that proclaims all of God's truth, explains the meaning of God's truth, and applies God's truth to the heart of the listener is Biblical or Expository Preaching. Only Biblical or Expository Preaching is able to save, feed, and satisfy your eternal soul.

Welcome to
Mining the gold of scripture
2018 VBS
June 25-29
Ages 3yrs – 5th grade*
*Children must be potty trained.  5th grade includes those who just graduated 5th and are going into 6th.
Welcome to Bethel Baptist’s 2018 Vacation Bible School!
This year’s theme is Mining the Gold of Scripture!  For the week of June 25-29, the church will be transformed into an Old West mining town where the kids will get to “dig for gold” in the Word of God through teaching, music, games and crafts.  They will learn that God’s word always tells the truth, and that it gives instruction about God, man, and how we ought to live our lives.  They will also learn that obeying God’s Word makes one wise, and that wisdom leads to reward from God.  Our goal in all of the lessons and activities is to demonstrate how God’s Word shows us our need for a Savior and helps Christians grow in their relationship with Him.
