Since 1978, Bethel Baptist Church has been ministering to an often forgotten segment of society: our deaf and hard-of-hearing friends and neighbors. One of Jesus’ special miracles was the healing of a man who could neither hear nor speak. We do not have the power of God like Jesus did to correct people’s physical deficiencies and limitations. However, we do have the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to minister especially to the spiritual needs of the deaf and hard-of-hearing. Our goal is to continually fulfill Isaiah 29:18a: “And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book…” We want the deaf to meet Jesus, Who can meet their every need.
Our Deaf Ministry Staff interpret all services and special programs, not just the ones planned exclusively for our deaf. Occasionally, trips are made to deaf activities elsewhere. Use the following contact for more information:
