And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Bethel Baptist Church is located in Oskaloosa, Iowa and is a member of the General Association of Regular Baptist Churches and the Iowa Association of Regular Baptist Churches. Our church has been pastored by Bruce Thompson since 1996.
We believe that Genesis through Revelations is the God-breathed Holy Word written by men who were guided by Him. We believe the Bible exists, in it's entirety, without error or contradiction, and is the guiding Book in all matters of individual Christianity and the church itself.
Membership is a serious commitment and is based upon a profession of faith through Salvation and a symbol of the Resurrection through baptism. The testimony of the profession of faith is heard and decided upon by both the deacons of the church and the congregation of the church. Upon membership, members of the church are expected to actively participate the furtherance of the Gospel in both the church and community abroad.
