History

Bethel Baptist Temple was pioneered in 1977 by Pastor Larry Cornett, his wife Jeanne, their children, and a group of families from the Cincinnati area.

During its first years the church met in a store-front building in St. Bernard, OH.  The congregation met there for seven years until the Lord opened the door to build a new place of worship in Sycamore Township. We dedicated our new building in 1984.                                                                                                           Old Store Front Building, St. Bernard                       

In 2006, we planted a sister church in Columbus, Bethel Baptist Fellowship, which is pastored by Pastor Scott Eckles.

In 2009, we planted a second church in the Dayton area, Victory People Church, which is pastored by Pastor Jeffrey Cornett.
