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 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.

Ben Hixson

Campus Pastor

Ben Hixson grew up on the southern shore of Lake Erie in Sandusky, Ohio - and yes, he had a summer job at Cedar Point. God led him to believe the gospel as a child and led him into ministry involvement and education with a desire to help people grow in their relationship with God. Along the way, Ben married Ashton and they became parents to 4 incredible kids during a decade-plus of ministry in metro Cleveland and metro Detroit areas.

Ben loves to preach God's Word, pull-off community building events, and share meals with people. If he hasn't met you yet, he'd love to hear your story and begin praying for what God is doing. Ben is confident that every person was designed to know and enjoy God forever.  So, together, Bethel H/P lives to glorify God and see our community transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is not a small vision and Bethel H/P is not a perfect family. So it's a good thing that we know and are empowered by God - who has created everything, is sustaining everything, and is doing the work of recreating His people in His kingdom. What a joy to see Him, serve Him, and enjoy Him now and forever!
