Baptist Church of collegeville
Hello and welcome to the Historic Bethel Baptist Church of Collegeville.
Bethel Baptist Church is listed as a National Historic Landmark, a National Treasure and part of the Birmingham Civil Rights Monument. Having been bombed three times in 1956, 1958 and 1962, Bethel stands as a testament of the power of God to protect those who seek to do His will.
Pastored by Reverend Fred L. Shuttlesworth, the church served as the headquarters of the Alabama Christian Movement for Human Rights and help to lead the movement that led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
