Our History

Bethesda (Bedok-Tampines) Church (BBTC) is an open brethren assembly, a church plant of Bethesda Katong Church (BKC).Our ministry roots dates back to Dec 1979, when a group of young leaders from BKC, committed to the Great Commission began an outreach ministry amongst the Youth Church in the Bedok-Tampines vicinity. When the Lord provided an ideal piece of land for a new church, Bethesda Katong launched by faith the project to plant a new church at this site. Other Brethren assemblies that came alongside BKC for this project were Bethesda (Frankel Estate) Church (BFEC) and Bethesda Bedok Mission Home (now Bethesda Pasir Ris Mission Church).

BBTC was registered as a legal entity on 8 August 1984. Our inaugural communion and worship service was held on 2 Nov 1986. The beloved late Dr Benjamin Chew was our first Chairman Elder of the Council. After 2 years, in Nov 1988, Bethesda Katong gave complete autonomy and the BBTC Council became an independent assembly of believers
