About this Church

“This isn’t your typical North Dakota church!” Take a second look and you will discover that God has raised up a vibrant ministry in the heart of North Dakota’s Lake Region. Bethel seeks to be inwardly strong; nurturing committed followers of Jesus; and outwardly focused; impacting the area far beyond the limits of Devils Lake. From the beautifully designed, well-equipped auditorium where the people of God gather weekly for worship, to the gymnasium where people from the community are invited to play basketball, to the classrooms where children are loved and cared for on a daily basis, Bethel strives to use its amazing facilities for the Glory of God. While the facilities at Bethel are excellent, it is the people that make Bethel great. Bethel is a multi-generational church where new believers and seasoned saints worship, fellowship, serve and grow together. As a church, we exist to glorify God, point people to new life in Christ and help them to follow Him as a way of life.
