Welcome to the website of Bethel Christian Reformed Church.  We appreciate your visit and I hope you enjoy exploring the site. Whether you are a current member of Bethel, a local resident looking for a church home, or a visitor to the Oskaloosa area, I trust that our website gives you a sense of who we are and how we are serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

The Word “Bethel” (Bet el in Hebrew) means “House of God”.  Bethel CRC is God’s house and we are His family whose chief glory is in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Each Sunday we come together to worship, recognizing our great need for God’s grace which moves us to behold the awesome work of Christ on our behalf. It is my prayer that your experience at Bethel blesses you spiritually and strengthens your faith in the Lord.

Come join us and be a part of what God is doing at Bethel!  

In His Grace and Power,

Pastor Doug Van Der Pol
