Old Bethel Baptist Church ( Silent
Hill) was organized sometime in the late 1800's. After an eight year
period of inactivity, the church was reorganized in 1921. In 1960, a
new building was constructed and in the mid- 1970's, a new auditorium
and fellowship hall were added. In the early -1990's the people of the
church built a parsonage. The church launched out in faith in 1999 and
purchased a 6 acre tract of land where new facilities would be built
to accommodate the fast growing congregation. The congregation labored
sacrificially in giving and in building, to bring this vision to past.
Our facilities include a full sized gymnasium, an auditorium, educational and office space, a full kitchen, a large playground, pavilion, and a vision to expand when
needed. We give God
the glory all the way! Old Bethel Baptist Church has vision of moving forward in ministry, missions,
and outreach. To God be the glory!!
WHAT WE BELIEVE:
At Old Bethel Baptist Church, we believe in the Verbal, Absolute
Inspiration of the Scripture, and that God's Word has authority in our lives.
We believe God is a Trinity, Man is fallen sinner, Satan is real, Heaven and Hell are both literal places, and Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was God-made flesh, born of a virgin, His life sinless, His blood atoning, His body Resurrected, and that Justification is by Grace and thru Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit, the Eternal Security of the Believer, the Imminent, Pre-tribulation, Pre-Millennial Return of Christ, As a Church, we are serious about Worldwide Missions as our obligation, the Autonomy of the Local Church, and the Priesthood of the Believer.
We practice the 2 Biblical ordinances of Baptism by Immersion and the Lord's Supper, which we receive numerous times throughout the year.
The Church has: Pastor and Elder/Deacon body, meeting the Biblical requirements of Acts 6 and I Timothy 3.
Simply to do what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20
GO, TEACH, BAPTIZE
GO - Yes, we are going at OBBC with Services, Ministries, Missions, Bible Studies, VBS, Bus Ministry, work at Homeless Shelters, & much more. But all of this busyness can be worthless if there is no teaching going on.
TEACH - Our goal is to teach ALL the WORD OF GOD, not our ideas or thoughts. We don't just tell stories. Our pastor goes deep into the Word of God with much study and prayer to bring understanding to the church of all the Word, yes even Leviticus. LOL, but Praise the LORD!
BAPTIZE - We practice water baptism for the picture of true baptism; what truly should be taking place in the heart of a believer. Washing all your thoughts away and arising up as a whole new creature being transformed with His thoughts. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." Jer 29:11
