Bethel Baptist Church began in 1964 at a home prayer meeting.  On Wednesday, September 9, 1964, Bethel Baptist Fellowship held its first service with thirteen present.

Then, on October 13, 1965, the congregation voted to purchase a four-acre tract of land on Springdale Road where the church now resides.

Former pastors include: Pastor Arwyn Reish, Dr. Carl Elgena, Pastor Virgil Stoneking, Dr. Loren Anderson and Pastor David Marks.  The Worship Center has had several additions and minor renovations and will enter a complete renovation in the summer of 2015.  The Family Life Center, which houses Shining Lights Early Childhood Center, the offices, and the Student Ministry Center is located next door.  This building had a complete renovation in 2014.
