Our Story So Far

In the early 1980s Rev E. S. McKeen came with his family from eastern Canada to Calgary to establish our church. Bethel United Pentecostal Church originally started in the downtown area of Calgary then moved into the Northeast quadrant of the city. The founder, Rev. McKeen visits about annually reminding us of the miracles with the church’s early days, and he always has a message of faith for the next chapter in our church's progress.


In July of 2007, Pastor Henry Poitras came to pastor Bethel. In 2012 the church moved from Airways Industrial Park to Marlborough Park. In 2013 we decided to take on the title of “The Pentecostals of Calgary”.


We look forward to you joining us, and our together seeing this church mission and miracle continue throughout Calgary and beyond.

A Multicultural Church

On Sundays at the front of our church services you'll notice a growing array of flags of the nations represented in our church.  We are excited about how God is drawing people from all kinds of backgrounds to worship together in unity.  We look forward to meeting with you and adding your flag to the collection if it is not already there.  With over 120 languages spoken and many more countries of origin represented in Calgary we're wanting to connect with everyone!
