Our History

The History of Bethel Baptist Church

In the summer of 2000, God placed a burning desire in the heart of Pastor Rudy Abrot, a former businessman, to start a work in the South Bay Area of California. It was in 2001 that Bethel Baptist church was first established in Torrance, CA. Through much prayer and hard work, we had our first church service with 16 people in attendance. God continued to bless as we then moved to Harbor City and in 2007, by God’s grace we purchased and began to build a property in Carson, CA. From 2010 to present, Bethel Baptist Church has been a lighthouse in Carson where many souls have been reached, many families have started to serve the Lord together, and many lives have been changed. To God be the glory! We would like to personally extend an invitation for you to visit and see the work that God has allowed us to be a part of here at Bethel Baptist Church.
