Who we are
What is the driving force of Bethel? It is Jesus Christ. Bethel is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom from sin, peace in their heart, and joy in their life.
Where we come from
Bethel was started in 1860 through the burden to reach the fishermen along the Delaware River. Back then, fishermen were considered outcasts in society and those who started Bethel imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Bethel still maintains that desire.
Where we're headed
What's the bottom line? More than ever, Bethel is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
What this means for you
What does this mean for you? Most importantly, you're always welcome at Bethel. We're saving a seat for you. Wherever you're at in your faith journey, you'll always be accepted as part of our family.
