Bethany Baptist Church was founded by Pastor Robert Altman in Barnwell, SC in January 2008. The Church has been ministering in this rural community since and has had a major impact. The church started with just a handful of people and now ministers to around 180 to 200 people weekly. The church was chartered on September 14, 2008 with 37 members. Bethany Baptist Church continues to grow and build and the Lord is blessing continuously.
