BE A PART OF OUR FAMILY!
WELCOME TO BETHESDA BAPTIST CHURCH
At Bethesda Baptist Church, we know that inspiration opens hearts. An open heart is an open mind and an open mind is one that can practice tolerance, experience gratitude and feel the glory of God. It is our belief that God is present in all of us, but His active presence can only be felt through faith in Him. We are dedicated to the service of God and all his people, and our goal is to inspire you through the holiness of our dwelling and our services. We invite you to become a part of our growing congregation.
HERE TO GLORIFY GOD
Bethesda Baptist Church has the honor of connecting people to God, Jesus Christ, and to one another in a loving and caring setting. It is our mission to empower our community to become disciples of God by learning the gospels and practicing his word.
The word “church” originates from the word “gathering” or “to gather”. This is why we so strongly cling to the notion that the church is not a building or a structure, but rather, the church is actually the believers themselves. We aim to maintain and foster a comfortable environment for our congregation to gather, build relationships, demonstrate love and share their knowledge. We believe that the Lord Almighty rewards those who take time out of each day to show their gratitude through prayer and spirituality.
REVEREND GERALD WASHINGTON
Reverend Gerald Washington has been inspiring the Bethesda Baptist Church community since joining our congregation. Considered to be the most distinguished figure in our Church, Reverend Gerald Washington is committed to providing members of the congregation with religious guidance. He was voted lifetime pastor of Bethesda Baptist Church in 1996.
Rev. Washington's ministry extends beyond the walls of Bethesda Baptist Church. He founded the Ward Summer Institute, a program designed to help at risk students during the summer. Rev. Washington is also currently the President of the Ministerial Council of Port Chester and Greenwich, Ct. It's by "doing God's work" and these acts of kindness that will allow Bethesda Baptist Church to grow and prosper in the future
