Who We Are


Bethany Baptist Church of Louisville is a community of Bible-believing Christians, which has met regularly in the Highlands area since 1927.  We are in cooperation with The Southern Baptist Convention, The Kentucky Baptist Convention, and The Louisville Regional Baptist Association.



Our purpose is to worship God as we grow as disciples of Jesus Christ who live on mission in all the world.

IMG_1064We seek to accomplish this purpose by…

Gathering for corporate worship that is defined by the gospel

Living in a manner worthy of the gospel

Growing as disciples by equipping with the gospel

Living on mission by engaging with the gospel

Reaching out with the gospel in Louisville, Kentucky, in North America, and to the ends of the earth



Biblical Preaching

DSC_7492Our preaching–and our whole teaching ministry–is firmly rooted in Scripture.  Each sermon challenges the heart, engages the mind, and feeds the soul as it explains a passage of Scripture and applies its meaning to life.





Authentic Worship

IMG_0247Worship is more about substance than style.  Through preaching, singing, praying, Scripture reading, and giving, believers gather to seek a fresh vision of God’s glory, confess their sin, embrace God’s marvelous grace in Christ, and commit to service (Isaiah 6: 1-8).  At Bethany worship is contemplative and warmly traditional, celebrating the historic hymns and embracing the newer songs of worship.





Evangelism and Missions
