    Biographical history

    In 1910 after meeting for two years, Baptists in Prince Rupert organized the First Baptist Church. A building was erected in 1913 at 5th Ave East and Young Street. Bethel Baptist Church was organized in 1953 to meet the needs of post-war German immigrants to the area, and services were held on Second Avenue. The two congregations merged in 1972 becoming the Bethel First Baptist Church and opened its doors in a new church building on India Avenue in 1973.
