Where it began

Bethany Church Columbia was started by Bethany Church in Ellicott City, Maryland on Mother’s Day in 2013. Thirty-five members went with the new church staff to get started in this endeavor. We began by focusing on relationships and having the message piped in from Ellicott City. After two years we began to see the need to make a change in the way we did things, beginning with hiring CJ Matthews as our full-time pastor. Since that time, Pastor CJ has been our main preacher and we have seen God continue to grow and shape our church to the vibrant community of believers we are today! 

We hope you’ll come check us out and consider becoming apart of what God’s doing to advance His Kingdom here in Columbia!
