Item 15, continued. Bethel Baptist Institutional Church is the oldest and largest of its denomination in the city and from it has come a number of churches as an extension of its missionary influence. This is noted from the fact that so many carry the name of the mother church, designating themselves by location only. The institutional activities of this church are very effectively acknowledged by the people of the city at the present time. Membership 2000, area covered including parsonage, 1 acre.
