On behalf of the Bethany Primitive Baptist Church Family, I bring you Greetings in the precious and omnipotent name of our Lord and Savior Jesus   Christ. Here at Bethany we have a multitude of ministries to meet your needs, and we warmly welcome you with all the joy and love of God’s Holy Spirit. 

If you are new to our community as well as our church, we are a family focused, Christ centered congregation that is rooted and grounded in God’s Holy   Word. At Bethany we offer progressive preaching and teaching, with outstanding singing from our adult choir, Praise Team, and our Youth choir.

As the newly installed Pastor of Bethany in September 2008, we are a congregation that is growing in the power of God’s Spirit and the love of Jesus   Christ month by month.

So if you wish to use your spiritual gifts, whether it be singing, teaching, evangelism, working with the homeless, homebound, seniors, women’s auxiliary, children and young adult ministries you are invited to come and grow with us. Make Bethany P.B. your church in the city of New Market, Alabama. Come and be blessed, and see what all the excitement is about.

May the Love of Christ continue to lead, guide and direct your path.

Pastor James L. Battle
