Bethany was started in 1963 in a small house in Baker, Louisiana. We are a church that is rich in godly heritage and carries a legacy that is three generations strong. Pastor Jonathan Stockstill leads Bethany with fresh vision to see Baton Rouge and surrounding areas won for Christ and to see people’s hearts set ablaze for the kingdom of God. With that vision in mind, we are moving full steam ahead with excitement at what God is doing through our local church. The move of God that is happening here is something you must experience!
We believe that church should be a place that is full of life, excitement, and the transforming presence of God. When you visit either of our locations, you will experience just that. Our worship is high energy and passionate, we teach from the Bible in a powerful but practical way, and we love others compassionately. Every week thousands of people are finding hope and encountering new life during our weekend experiences. From the quality nursery and fun-filled children’s service to the relevant, inspiring teaching, there is something for everyone! Most importantly, you’ll experience the presence of God.
But rather than let us tell you about it, come check it out for yourself! Visit either our north or south campus and see what we’re all about!
