Bethel Family Ministries was founded in 1947 by Ben Hodge (the grandfather of the current Senior Pastor).
In 1977, the church purchased land and built what is now Bethel Assembly at 6301 Alabama.
In 1978, the church started a school that now is fully accredited and has grown to approximately 300 enrolled students, teaching preschool to twelfth grade.
Over the course of several years other additions have been made to the church complex including an annex for classrooms and a gymnasium.
Bethel Family Ministries
Bethel Family Ministries is a local church in El Paso committed to expanding God's Kingdom and building healthy lives. Because we believe in cooperation and accountabilty, we are affiliated with the General Council of the Assemblies of God. We are an established church with a young heart. We would love for you to be our guest this Sunday.

Who We Are. . .
Bethel Assembly is a God-centered, purpose-driven church. Our purpose is multi-faceted and includes five basic objectives:
- wholehearted worship to God
- fellowship of participants
- discipleship and spiritual growth
- outreach ministry to the community
- evangelism to those who do not know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
At every level, these five purposes drive the activities of the church.
We serve a largely Hispanic community, much of which is Spanish-speaking. All our services are geared toward those who speak English. Our congregation is composed of many races including Asian, Afro-American, Hispanic, and Anglo. Between 600 and 700 individuals attend church services each week. Approximately 400 families are members of Bethel Assembly.
