Our Purpose To fulfill the ministries given to us in the New Testament:
We have a ministry to the Master to worship and glorify God and His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
We have a ministry to the multitude (the world) to be light by proclaiming the Gospel of Christ and to be salt by standing against evil.
We have a ministry to our members to help each member grow in the grace and knowledge of or Lord Jesus Christ, thereby bringing them to Christ-like maturity and equipping them for Christian Service.
There is a Place for You at El Bethel! El Bethel is a Bible believing church. We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. Through the leadership of the Holy Spirit, it is proclaimed uncompromisingly. In doing this, the whole Gospel of Christ is presented, thus providing a preaching and pastoral ministry suited to meet your needs.
El Bethel is a Christ Centered Church. Sunday school is at the center of our church growth and incorporates the FAITH Evangelism Sunday School Strategy. We have a tremendous children's and youth ministry which deals with topics of special interest and provides activities throughout the year. The major focus of these activities, and our recreation program, is to teach our children and youth about the Lord. We also have a wonderful Senior Adult ministry (Our Jolly Seniors). Our Seniors are vital to us with their encouragement, faithfulness, and Godly wisdom. Our music program provides a place for everyone. We are busy at El Bethel, but not too busy to keep our proper focus. We are a Christ centered church and all of our ministries keep Him front and center so that all we do is done to honor and exalt our Savior.
El Bethel is a Mission Minded Church. We maintain a steady program of world missions by contributing consistently to state, home, and international missions through the Southern Baptist Convention. We have an active Women On Mission group that has a special project each month. We support such ministries as World Hunger, Piedmont Women's Center, Connie Maxwell Children's Home, Greer Community Ministries, Release Time, as well as other local, state, and national ministries.
El Bethel is a Friendly Church. We are a very informal church and you will enjoy the hearty welcome, friendly atmosphere, and the sincere interest shown in you. You will be greeted with a smile and a handshake and you will sense our Christian hospitality immediately.
Welcome We look forward to seeing you at El Bethel Baptist Church. Our Church is a friendly church and we are genuinely interested in your personal joy. El Bethel was established in 1911 and we have a rich heritage, but we are also excited about the present and future. At El Bethel, we believe in the inspired and inerrant Word of God. We know that Jesus Christ desires to be everyone's personal Savior and Lord, and it is our desire to reach the lost and those without a church home. We also strive to build up and edify our church members and try to help them grow in the understanding of God's Word, and in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. The primary purpose for our worship time together is to exalt our Lord Jesus and to focus upon God as we honor and glorify Him. Do you want peace? Do you desire fellowship and ministry opportunities? Do you seek true happiness? As we at El Bethel worship and serve the Lord, we are also eager to serve you, and we are truly interested in your future. El Bethel is a church for all the family and the church you have been looking for. This is your invitation to join us in an experience of worship, fellowship, and ministry at El Bethel Baptist Church.
