Bethesda is a Place of Healing, A Place to Make Disciples, to Share Christ, and Change Lives
Bethesda began in 1926 by 72 dedicated people. We were the first covenant church in the country to organize and conduct services entirely in English. We started meeting in Hiland School. In July of 1927 we purchased our current property and started laying the cornerstone for our building.
In 1948 we added an educational building to better teach our youth. For we dare not hesitate in giving our children the very best in Christian Education.
Then in 1997 we began the Lao Covenant Church, who meets in their own section of the church.
history of Bethesda
In Hebrew, Bethesda Means "House of Mercy"
We are a place of healing, a place of making people whole. Our world is filled with hurt people,
people who have no one, sick people, forgotten people, lonely people, they have no one.
Bethesda is here, a place where all can come an be made whole.
