Our History Runs Deep

The illustrious history of Historic Bethel is one rooted in faith. Originating in 1894, the heartbeat of “Methodist Town” was built in 1922. It is the first and oldest predominantly African American church in the city of St. Petersburg, FL and has taken many steps of faith.

Bethel is a tremendous anchor of hope in the Tampa Bay community.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. It is the greatest gift anyone can give.
