WE HAVE COME THIS FAR BY FAITH. “STILL” DETERMINED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Thank you for visiting the website of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Our Pastor is The Rev. A. Iona Smith Nze.
On September 29, 2018, Bethel kicked off its 200th Anniversary with a Black Tie/Red Carpet Anniversary Celebration and a year’s worth of activities, forums, master classes and concerts to celebrate 200 years of Christian witness as the oldest African- American church in the City of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Bethel is a church where we celebrate our hope in a living and loving God; where we vigorously pursue the healing of our whole selves - mind, body, and soul - through the grace of Jesus Christ and the healing community he founded, called church; and where we boldly claim the power of God's Spirit to transform our lives, our families, our communities, and our world for the better.
You're welcome to take your time, look around, and learn more about our church. Of course, the best way to connect with the Bethel Church family is to visit as we gather for worship each Sunday morning. We look forward to meeting you!
