Above:  Pastor Keith as the Town Crier 2019


Welcome to Bethel Church!


We are a church family made up of people from various walks of life who love Jesus Christ and acknowledge the Bible as God’s infallible word.


Our society has become secularized to the point that God has been pushed back in a corner; attending church and hearing the teachings of the Bible helps us to re-center our priorities and face another week with hope and optimism.


Founded in 1887, Bethel Church provides fellowship, support, and learning about our Lord and how we can apply the scriptures in our lives.


Whoever you are, and wherever you are in your life, there is a place for you at Bethel Church!    


   ~Pastor Keith A. Valenzuela
