Our Founders

Bethel Christian Academy Founders

Bethel Fellowship Ministry was founded in July, 1980. Its vision is to evangelize the world, edify the body and educate disciples. 

Bethel Fellowship has been committed to giving children a theistic training through Bethel Christian Academy and Rough River Youth Ranch, a boarding school established in partnership with BCA.

RRYR provides a stable home environment and opportunities for spiritual, physical, and mental growth.

Bethel Fellowship has also been a voice through WBFI Christian radio since 1987.

Our Statement of Faith

We believe in...

  1. The inspiration of the Bible, equally and in all parts and without error in its origin;
  2. One God, the eternally existing Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, who created man by a direct, immediate act;

  3. The pre-existence, incarnation, virgin birth, sinless life, miraculous works, vicarious death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ;

  4. The fall of man, the need of regeneration by the operation of the Holy Ghost on the basis of grace through faith alone, and the resurrection of both the just and the unjust–the just to eternal life, and the unjust to eternal damnation; and

  5. The spiritual relationship of all believers in Jesus Christ, living righteously unto good works, separated from the world, and witnessing of the saving grace of God by the ministry of the Holy Ghost.

Hands folded on top of Bible.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

-- Proverbs 22:6
