Bethel was launched by a small group of Swedish immigrants on November 12, 1892 as the Scandinavian Baptist church of Mankato. In December of 1928 the name was changed to Bethel Baptist Church.
Our church has a rich history supporting mission organizations and missionaries through prayer and finances. We are affiliated with CONVERGE Worldwide (formerly BGC) and partner with them in various mission endeavors around the world.
Our ministries include children, youth, young adults, adults, and worship.
