It is my distinct privilege to welcome you to the Bethel Baptist Church Web site today. We are glad you are here and trust that God will bless you in a personal way just for visiting us. Whether you are here for information, seeking a new Church Home, or simply out "surfing" the net, we thank you for stopping by... We have a wide variety of ministries for you to explore as you seek answers to your questions.
We know that the best days of Bethel are ahead of us and we would count it a blessing to have the fellowship of more friends along the way. While Bethel celebrates a rich history of 235 years as a Southern Baptist Congregation in this community, we are not a church that seeks to hold onto tradition, at any cost, but strives to meet the needs of a Twenty-First Century Church. Our Worship is vibrant and meaningful. Our ministry to others reaches from our community right here in Sumter to all over the globe, and our Bible studies offer deep and abiding joy as we discover God's message to us in Scripture. We are willing to go where the Lord sends us and nothing would make us happier than for many more to join in the journey. We follow one Lord, share one faith, and celebrate one birth as disciples of Jesus Christ.
Come be a part of our exciting fellowship and see where God will take us as we travel on through the winding path of life together. Again, we welcome you and trust God has already blessed you as you seek to find just the right place of ministry and worship.
