A Word From Our Pastor

Bethel….. ” house of God “.  Just as Jacob sensed God’s presence at a place he called “Bethel”, it is my prayer that you, likewise, will experience God’s presence at Bethel Baptist Church in Rochester, MN.  The name Bethel literally means “house of God”.  That is truly what we want to be- a house of worship where people come to experience and know God through His Son, Jesus Christ.

At Bethel, it is our goal and purpose to help you to develop a personal relationship with God.  We desire to be your church family.  Under God’s divine leadership, we are a growing family of faith .  As your church family, we will love, encourage, support, and pray for you.  Through life’s challenging moments, we will be there for you.

I want to personally invite you to worship with us.  Perhaps Bethel Baptist Church could be a place for you!

In Christ,
Paul Melton, Associate Pastor
