Bethel Baptist Church
Sechelt BC Canada

So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

- Ephesians 4:11-13

Welcome to

Welcome to

Jesus said, ´come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.´

At Bethel, we believe that all people matter to God, and to us.

Bethel Baptist Church is a group of Christians who have committed themselves to work together in developing their relationship with God through Jesus Christ, and to inviting others, both in our community and throughout the world, to participate in that relationship.  We believe that the message of the Bible is good news, with Jesus as its central theme.  The Bible tells us what we need to know and do in order to please God and enjoy his presence through Jesus.

Our desire is to be the Gathered and Sent: We gather for worship, teaching, fellowship, discipleship and encouragement.  We are sent to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus, taking the Gospel in a lifestyle that brings Christ to others, moving out into our neighborhoods with the love of Christ actively participating in the mission of God.
