But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision avails anything but a new creation.
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 Steve Cox since April 2014.
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.
