Bethany was started in 1963 in a small house in Baker, Louisiana. We are a church that is rich in Godly heritage and carries a legacy that is three generations strong. Pastor Jonathan Stockstill leads Bethany with fresh vision to see Baton Rouge and surrounding areas won for Christ and to see people’s hearts set ablaze for the Kingdom of God. Our mission is simple, we want to Bring ALL PEOPLE into the Life, Family, and Purpose of God.
We believe that church should be a place that is full of life, excitement, and the transforming Presence of God. When you visit any of our locations, you will experience just that.
Our worship is energetic and passionate, we teach from the Bible in a powerful but practical way, and we love others compassionately.
From the quality nursery and fun-filled children’s service to the relevant and inspiring teaching, there is something for everyone! Most importantly, you will experience the Presence of God. But rather than let us tell you about it, come check it out for yourself!
Here at Bethany, our mission is to bring all people into the life, family and purpose of God. We believe anyone who is connected to Christ in these three key areas are poised to thrive in every other area of life.
We don’t just believe in our mission statement, we also live it out and express these principles practically. To us, ‘all people’ represents the rich cultural and generational diversity that makes up the Kingdom of God. Being connected to the life of Christ means growing daily as a disciple. Being a part of the family of God means being a part of a life giving community of believers, like a Bgroup. Finding purpose in the life and family of God looks like serving on the Ateam, going on a missions trip, or serving our local community through outreaches.
