GREETINGS FROM OUR PASTOR

We are delighted that you are visiting our website and look forward to seeing you worship with the New Bethel Baptist Church family.  At New Bethel, we celebrate the saving power of our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ, the presence of the Holy Spirit, and the grace of God; we preach and teach a social justice gospel of liberation that Christ taught, and we put our faith into works throughout the congregation and community.

By God's Power,
Bishop, James M. Whitaker, Pastor

Rev. Dr. Mark M. Whitaker, Assistant Pastor
