welcome

We are a young, friendly, growing, Assemblies of God church. You will find that we have many ministries to meet all of the needs of you or your family. In addition to our Sunday Morning Worship, we offer several small group Bible studies called LifeGroups, various outreach ministries, an active Youth Program, Children’s Church, Royal Rangers (for boys), Mpact (for girls), and much, much more.

But the foundation of our church is not based simply on programs, but rather on relationships. Our primary relationship is the one we all should have with God the Father and His Son Jesus. Everything we do revolves around this.

Second, we encourage caring, loving relationships within our church body. Bethel is truly a church that loves each other!

Thirdly, we strongly believe that good relationships with those OUTSIDE of the church are a vital ingredient to fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). The Bible tells us that “they will know we are Christians by our love.” So it is important that we show the love of God outwardly as well as within the church walls.
