Bethel Baptist Church used to be just as Amy G. wrote in her review. Now it is a church in transition. Dr. David McClain, the fairly new pastor of the church, has imported a church growth program that he has used in previous churches. One of his goals has been to change the Bethel church culture from "sweet", "traditional", "cohesive" and "mostly elderly" --- as Amy described --- to one which reflects popular church growth strategies, targets young upwardly mobile professionals, and is better suited to his program.

Those who read Amy's review and are looking for a church that sings hymns and is traditionally Baptist will probably no longer feel at home with the new Bethel culture and practice. Those who want to leave that culture behind, or have not visited Bethel because they were afraid it was too "quaint" or old-fashioned might want to give this church another look.

Dr. David McClain has a definite plan and blueprint for church growth, and is looking for people who are willing to "get on the same page". I would encourage those interested in the church to sit down with Dr. McClain and make sure you are in full agreement with his strategy. If so, joining this church will be an exciting opportunity to be involved in a "church turn-around".

Bethel Baptist is a very sweet little church that my family and I have attended. It is a very traditional Baptist church. The vast majority of the church is elderly, but they still try to do little events to promote cohesiveness throughout the church. I liked the fact that they had the traditional pews and sang the traditional hymns. I didn't feel that it was a great fit for me and my family because we are so young, but it really is a very nice church.
