Welcome to First Bethel Church!

Here our mission is to make disciples of Christ for the transformation of the world. That’s certainly a pretty serious purpose, but that’s what we strive to do at First Bethel, animated by God’s joy, compassion and peace.


Will you find a perfect church? No, we are just imperfect people who are trying to make this world a better place.  We are a group of soulful individuals who try to accept everyone – wherever they are on their journey through life – whatever their spiritual history might be – and whatever they might believe.  We try to be a home for all persons – of all backgrounds, cultures, lifestyles, and interests.  You probably won’t find a group of people that try harder to make community happen. First Bethel is a church that welcomes all. We will accept you exactly as you are! Our goal will never be to judge you … but to embrace you – and love you – and encourage you in your individual walk of faith.


We work hard to provide an opportunity each week for every person to experience passionate worship. We have on-going opportunities throughout the year for faith development – for means of touching lives through mission trips and activities of community outreach – both within our community, state, nation, and even around the world.

We invite you to look around our website, and certainly come and visit us! See if First Bethel Church is the sort of place that you might find a spiritual home to celebrate God – a place to be nurtured in spirit – and a family where you will find ways to serve with others in God’s love … a love that invigorates and satisfies.
