About Us

The ministry of Bethany Baptist Church started on Nov.4, 2007 with a vision to establish a Baptist Church in South Bangalore, which includes areas like BTM Layout, MICO Layout, Jayanagar, J.P Nagar, Bilekahalli, Puttenahalli, Kodichikkanahalli, Begur, Taverekere, Arekere, Gottigere, Marenahalli, Vijaya Bank Colony, Banashankari, Bannerghatta Road, Madiwala, Koramangala, Outer Ring Road, Bommanahalli, Hosur Road, Sarjapura Road, HSR Layout etc.

This was a joint effort by Pr. Ken & Mrs.Mary along with Pr. Simeon Sundar & Mrs.Vijaya who were commissioned to plant a Baptist Church in the southern part of Bangalore. They were joined by a handful of people and thus the ministry of Bethany began on Nov. 4, 2007, with 18 people attending our first service. We desired to provide a Church that is primarily committed to preaching the whole counsel of God, which then results in life transformation & worship. We started with an insignificant beginning and then constituted ourselves as an autonomous Baptist Church on August 29, 2010.

Bethany Baptist Church is a registered body under the Indian Trust Act and Income Tax Act. We are also registered under the Income Tax Act as a religious trust.

The various activities of the Church are focused on studying the Word and building relationships. We help people to pursue a relationship with Jesus Christ and with one another. If you are looking for a Church where you feel accepted and taught in the Word of God, then we invite you to visit us.
