“‘How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.’…He called that place Bethel…”

Genesis 28:17, 19

This is a great place. Yep. It is.

This is truly a place where you can be who you really are and still feel loved in a way that suits you. It’s not a one-size-fits-all, cookie cutter kind of a place. It’s definitely a place that can take you to a higher ground.

There’s a buzz at First Bethel – a positive, uplifting, embracing spirit that you’ll feel as soon as you enter. And it’ll stay with you long after you leave.
