Church History

Bethel Baptist Church was established in September of 1998 by Pastor Leon H Lucas Sr. Although Wilson, NC has many churches, Pastor Lucas saw the need to reach his brethren who do not have a clear understanding of the Word of God. It was his desire to start a church that would show others according to the Bible first how to be saved, and second how to live a life here on earth that pleases God. The church started out in a classroom at Fike Hike School, and consisted solely of the Lucas family. As the congregation grew they met in a small storefront. Through much prayer and leading of the Lord, the congregation finally acquired its current church building.In May 2014, Pastor Lucas moved into the Helps Ministry and passed the mantle to Pastor Kenneth Fontenot.  Over the years, the Lord has used Bethel Baptist Church to reach many people in the community. It is the goal of the church, and its new Pastor to see more people saved, and more lives changed.

What We Believe

We believe in THE HOLY SCRIPTURE: accepting the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts and therefore wholly without error and altogether sufficient in themselves as our only infallible and authoritative rule of faith and practice. We believe that God has preserved His Word in the King James Version.
