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 10am.

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 fulfill this purpose as we: devote ourselves to the preaching, study, and application of God’s Word; seek the Lord in earnest prayer; experience the power of authentic, life-changing fellowship; and engage our community and the world with the gospel.

What's Different

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