Who We Are

OUR MISSION: "To Reach the world for Jesus Christ, touching one life at a time."

Do you want to grow in the Lord, for the sake of yourself, your relationships, and family, and because you are hungering for more…..More God…… You want to have a close and intimate relationship with Him……And it's hard to do that when your co-workers are far from seeking the Lord or your Christian friends are satisfied with a mediocre lifestyle.
Every Sunday and Wednesday at New Bethel Baptist Church, you can come, grow, and learn with other individuals who have the same desires - to live out the purposes of God in their lives. Everyday.

When you visit our church, you will find:
• A caring, friendly congregation that will gladly welcome you
• Preaching and teaching that is centered on the Word of God
• A worship service that is a blend of traditional & contemporary
• Growing ministries to meet the needs of every age group
Childcare is provided

Our Services

What are services like?
Our Sunday Worship Service begins at 11:00 am. We are a very laid back church, casual dress and kid friendly. We have a children's church time, where the children come to the front and a brief lesson is presented. The children are then dismissed to Bible Times in the Fellowship Hall. Special music is provided by our choir or another musically gifted church members. A Bible based, God led message is then presented. At the conclusion of the Message an invitation is offered to anyone who has made a decision.

What is the community like?
We are a rural community, just south of Bonnie and Clyde Trade Day's in Arcadia, Louisiana, right off of Hwy 9 at it's intersection with Jot'em Down Road.

What if I'm not a Christian?
How to Become a Christian Acknowledge that you are a sinner in need of a Savior - this is to repent or turn away from sin "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23 Believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead - this is to trust that Jesus paid the full penalty for my sins "God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8 Confess Jesus as your Lord and my God - this is to surrender control of my life to Jesus "If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved." Romans 10:9-10 Receive Jesus as your Savior forever - this is to accept that God has done for me and in me what He promised If it is your sincere desire to receive Jesus into your heart as your personal Lord and Savior, then talk to God from your heart: "Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and I do not deserve eternal life. But, I believe You died and rose from the grave to make me a new creation and to prepare me to dwell in your presence forever. Jesus, come into my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I am now placing my trust in You alone for my salvation and I accept your free gift of eternal life."
