Our Story


The word BETHEL means HOUSE OF GOD.

There is a story in the Bible about a man named Jacob who was trying to find his place and purpose in life. His failures and mistakes put him at odds with his own brother, and made it necessary for him to travel over 400 miles in an attempt to find safety and to make a new start. GOD chose the first night of Jacob’s journey to reveal Himself in an unusual way to this struggling man. The experience gave Jacob a remarkable and unexpected insight into God’s plan for his life. The next morning Jacob realized that he was in a special place, and he called that place BETHEL.

At BETHEL you will find a group of people who are real and unpretentious. We are humbly learning how to embrace, practice, and share the Christian life. We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is the greatest adventure of all and we are thankful for what God is doing in our lives.

YOU are special to God, too! The Bible says that God loves you, regardless of what you have done or where you have been. He stands ready to forgive you, accept you as His child, and give you the gift of eternal life. Contrary to what a lot of people believe, it is not a matter of belonging to the right church or trying to live a good life. The answer is trusting in JESUS CHRIST as your Savior and committing your life to Him.

BETHEL – HOUSE OF GOD – is a place of Faith, Hope, & Love, and it is our prayer that God will make Bethel a special place for you!
