Bethesda Baptist Church of New Rochelle

The Oldest African-American Baptist Church in Lower Westchester County

"The Church With The Healing Touch"


Bethesda Baptist Church of New Rochelle seeks to impact her community and world so as to bring glory and honor to God and to His Christ. Our goal is to please God as we minister to those around us, as we reach, teach, and motivate people to become genuine followers of Jesus Christ. Her five-fold approach to pleasing God speaks about the depth of her commitment to Him.


Love God

Loving God is evident in the quality and quantity of our worship. God wants each of us to immerse ourselves in authentic worship. It is only when we are committed to doing what it takes to worship God in spirit and in truth that we are able to love Him and bring glory to His name week after week.


Love People

Jesus tells us to love one another as God has loved us. At Bethesda we seek to put this command into action as we genuinely express our care and compassion for each other and for those who are without God in this world. We live out our love of people through our Spiritual Formation Groups where we connect with each other on deeper levels.


Serve the World

Jesus commanded His church to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8 outlines clearly for us our mission in the world. We endeavor to send as well as take the Gospel to every neighborhood and to every nation in this world.


Invite Others

To implement God's strategy of saving the world, we, as a church, are committed to reaching those God has strategically placed within close promixity of us. Bethesda is committed to training and re-training her covenant-disciples, providing them with the necessary tools and resources needed to effectively engage in personal evangelism.


Give Generously

Bethesda is known as a giving fellowship. Bethesda supports missions through her convention connections as she partners with other church around the world to assist those who are in need of help. Bethesda is also committed to cultivating her covenant-disciples to both understand and live by the principles of stewardship as outlined in Scripture.
