The year was 1967 when a family just around the corner from our present location felt a need for an Independant Baptist Church in this side of Enid. The Harmony Baptist Church in Yucon, OK answered the call and sent an evangelist to start gathering people to form a church. The first pastor was John Brittian who stayed until August of 1981. The present pastor, Wesley Byrd came at that time and has served as pastor these many years. The Academy was started in 1976 and has been training young people to serve the Lord for many years. Wesley Byrd (1986) For eighteen years Christian Radio KBVV 91.1fm was broadcast out of our building reaching all of North-Central Oklahoma.
Bethel Baptist Church has a two-fold purpose:
1. To reach the lost or unsaved in our community and around the world. To preach the unsearchable riches of Christ and His pardon of sin and that regardless of the depth of sin He can save to the uttermost.
2. To Edify the Saints of God whether lonely and hurting or activilly serving the Lord. We need a constant edification to equip us as servants and to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
