Bethel is a multi-campus church that believes that all of life is about Jesus Christ and his glory. We want to be a church that reaches the community of Northwest Indiana with the gospel and
makes much of the name of Jesus.
We gather Sundays at 9:00am & 10:45am.

Who We Are

Being a multi-campus congregation located in Northwest Indiana, we exist to glorify God by making fully-devoted followers of Jesus Christ who worship and exalt him in all things. 

What We Do

We strive to transform the region through the gospel by preaching, ministries, and outreach.

What's Different

Our vision is to see the Region, the nation, and the world transformed by the gospel through preaching, ministries, and outreach.

Steve DeWitt

Senior Pastor

It has been Pastor Steve’s joy to serve as Bethel Church’s senior pastor since 1997. His primary responsibilities are teaching at our weekend services, shepherding the people, leading the staff, serving as an elder, and providing overall vision for the church.
Steve’s passions include expository preaching, the doctrines of grace, helping the church engage its culture, and the beauty of God. He often speaks in contexts outside of Bethel, is a Council Member of 
The Gospel Coalition, and enjoys traveling as a part of Bethel’s global mission efforts. He also serves on the board of Global Action, an international missions organization providing theological training for church leaders across the world.
In addition to weekends at Bethel, Steve’s teaching ministry can be heard through Bethel’s media ministry, The Journey. This teaching ministry airs weekdays and weekends on stations across the country including Moody Radio. Steve is the author of Eyes Wide Open (2012) and Enjoying God in Everything (2022) and his most recent book, Loneliness: Don’t Hate it or Waste it. Redeem it.
A graduate of Cornerstone University and Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Steve’s interests include reading, travel, sports of all kinds, and rooting for University of Iowa teams. You are likely to run into him at a golf course near you. After serving as a single pastor for many years, Steve was married to Jennifer in August of 2012. You can read their story in 
this article featured by The Gospel Coalition. They rejoiced at the birth of their daughters Kiralee in 2013 and Madeline in 2015. The DeWitts live in Crown Point.
