About Bethel Seventh-day Adventist Church
“We’ve Come this far by Faith”

Proverbs 29:18 states that without vision the people perish. We are a progressive church with vision and part of that vision includes the building of God’s House.

By faith, upon learning of the seventh-day Sabbath, a family opened its home in Windsor Florida for weekly bible studies.

By faith a group of about 10 adults and a dozen children was organized into a company.

By faith, a tent effort resulted in the baptism of 12 new members, a retired bible worker willed her home to provide funds to build a church, and Bethel was named and built by 20 members in a building on NE 5th Avenue.

By faith, Bethel was completed and opened its doors for worship at its current location on NE 8th Avenue. 

By faith, Bethel burned its mortgage in December through sacrificial giving.

By faith, Bethel purchased approximately 11.5 acres of land on East University Ave., developed the property, approved architectural drawings and has designated a contractor.

By faith Bethel now has over 230 members and approximately 100 regular visitors actively meeting the needs of the community and local church family.

This is a picture of our vision:

They made salvation possible when Jesus, the Son, came to earth as a baby in Bethlehem and lived a sinless life in accordance with the Father's will.
