United Bethel exists not only to foster personal holiness among its members, but also to participate in various ministries of outreach to the world about us. Our mission budget supports the work of members in various local ministries as well more distant points within the U.S. and foreign countries.
From our humble beginnings – worshiping in homes and a “basement church” – to our present modern facility with seating for 500 people, the emphasis has been on staying true to God’s Word and avoiding the cultural acclimation so common in churches today. In support of these goals, United Bethel affiliated with the Biblical Mennonite Alliance (BMA) in February 2000. We feel that we as a congregation can serve God better in our generation by working with other Christians who have the same dedication that we hold to the literal obedience to God’s Word. If God’s Word is to be judged equally applicable across time and culture, it is essential that we resist the changes that the sinful society around us would gradually thrust upon us.
The church is led by a senior pastor, Lonnie Miller, and three assistant pastors (1) Wes Helmuth, (2) Doran Gingerich, and (3) Wendell Gingerich, with the help of nine elders, including a youth elder. In order to give a greater sense of personal belonging, the church is divided into eleven house fellowships, each led by a member of the leadership team.
