to our church! Welcome to our website!
Haven is an Independent Baptist Church located in the northeast part of
Morgantown, West Virginia, in the Cheat Lake community.
HISTORY - The
founding pastor, Jack Misner, served the church from 1984-1990. In
September of 1990 the church called David M. Coe, a native of Michigan,
to be their pastor. In the last 14 years Beth Haven has been slowly and
steadily growing into a strong Baptist Church. BHBC just
celebrated its 20th year.
'CAMP' ARE WE
IN? - Because
Pastor Coe grew up in a pastor's home, and was trained for the ministry
in a local church, his approach to ministry does not fall into the
various "camps" that so many pastors often identify themselves
PROGRAMS - We
are not a gimmicks and programs oriented church. If you are looking for
a church with many youth programs, children's churches, contests,
prizes, and a carnival type atmosphere, then we might not be the right
church for you. On the other hand, if you are looking for a church where
your family can worship the Lord together; a place that emphasizes
strong, biblical preaching and congregational singing, then we encourage
you to come visit us!
are against shallow soul-winning. We preach faith and repentance
toward Christ, which produces true conversions. Most of our converts
were led to the Lord after sitting through several hours of home Bible
study with the pastor. We are not interested in building a large
membership of unconverted people. Our goal is a church that pleases the
Lord, not a church that impresses men.
OUR PEOPLE - Beth Haven is a congregation of about eighty people who are of modest means, ranging in age from young adult to middle age. Beth Haven is home to many young families with children, as well as a handful of college students from West Virginia University (WVU). We are also homeschool friendly. The pastor's family has home-schooled their four sons for twelve years. Most of the families in the church do the same, or intend to, when their children come of school age.
you are moving into the area, or just passing through, we hope you will
stop by for a visit.
