Meet our Pastoral Staff

Pastor David Fulp
Dr. David Fulp accepted Christ as Savior at the age of five in a Sunday School class on December 11, 1967.  At age seventeen, he answered the call to preach and furthered his education at Liberty University, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree and Master of Divinity degrees.  He continued on to get his Doctor of Theology degree from Clarksville Theological Seminary.  He has served as pastor of churches in Elizabethtown, North Carolina (seven years) and Madison, North Carolina (twenty-one years).  It is Pastor Fulp’s desire to see the lost come to Christ and Christians strengthened through the ministries of Bethel Baptist Church. 
Pastor Fulp and Lisa, his wife, have two grown children in full-time ministry.
Pastor Kyle Aiello
God brought Kyle and Kristy together while studying for ministry. Kristy graduated with a degree in Music in 2013 and Kyle graduated from Seminary in 2014 with a Master of Ministry degree. Kyle was ordained to the gospel ministry in November of 2021. They are the parents of two sons, David and Ethan. 
Kyle and Kristy served together for 7 years at Community Baptist Church of Groton, CT until God led them to Bethel Baptist Church in July of 2022.
Kyle serves on staff as the Youth Pastor and Music Director
Mr. David Case
Christian School Administrator
“Having grown up in church, I made a profession of faith as a child; however, I did not fully understand what salvation in Christ truly meant. As a teenager, I finally  realized my personal need of the Savior, asked for forgiveness of sins, and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior.  My life has not been the same since.  Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” After trusting the Lord for salvation in my heart, I learned to trust Him for the path of my life.  The road has been curvy at times, but I am thankful that the path has led me and my family to Bethel Baptist Church. It is true that “…His way is perfect.”
David and his wife, Hannah, are blessed with five children, Isabelle, Calvin, William, Owen, and Elizabeth.

What should I expect?

None of us “have it all together”

That’s probably why we make such a close family, because we’re all growing in grace. Every single one of us is a work in progress.

We would love to meet you

When you walk in, we’re glad to see you! Don’t worry about having to “measure up” or “fit in.” None of us really measure up, and we’re all very different. Our church family welcomes diversity, so fitting in isn’t an issue.

We’re not really very religious

It may sound strange coming from a church, but honestly, empty religious practices have let a lot of people down. Religious structures and systems are confusing, complicated, and disconnected from real life. We would love to help you move from “religion” into an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.

We Present a simple message

We worship Jesus, we believe and study the Bible, we encourage each other—and we do it all in terms that are understandable and that  connect to your everyday life.

We really are just regular, friendly people

“Religious” people often come off contrived, artificial, and argumentative. You won’t find that at Bethel. We are real people just like you. We are trusting Jesus with the struggles we face each day and trusting God to work in our families and in our community.
If you’re looking for encouragement, thence are in the right place. We want you to grow in your faith and connect with some good friends who have faith in Jesus Christ.


EXALT Christ, EDIFY Believers, and EVANGELIZE the Lost 

The Bible
We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments as verbally inspired by God and without error in the original writings: that the Bible is reliable in science, history, and every other matter it discusses; and that the Bible is the supreme and final authority in faith and life. We believe God not only inspired every word, but has preserved them through the ages. We believe the King James Version is the preserved Word of God for the English-speaking people. (II Timothy 3:16,17; II Peter 1:19-21)
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Exodus 20:2,3; I Corinthians 8:6; Matthew 28:19,20; II Corinthians 13:14)
God the Father
We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from eternal death and Hell all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Psalm 22:3; John 17:11; Psalm 147:5; I John 3:20; Matthew 19:26; John 3:16; John 14:5; I Timothy 2:5; Psalm 65:2; Hebrews 11:6; Matthew 6:26,28-30; Romans 5:8)
God the Son
We believe in the absolute Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; His eternal existence as God, coequal with the Father and the Holy Spirit; His incarnation by means of the virgin birth; His sinlessness; His vicarious death through the shedding of His blood as an atonement for the remission of our sins; His literal bodily resurrection from the dead; His ascension; His present high priestly ministry in Heaven for Believers; and His Personal return to earth. (I John 5:20; John 1:18; John 14:29; Hebrews 1:8; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-35; I Peter 2:22; Romans 3:25; Hebrews 9:14; Luke 24:36-43; Acts 1:9,11; Luke 24:51; Hebrews 8:1,2; Acts 10:40,41; I John 2:1; I Thessalonians 4:16)
God the Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Divine Person, co-equal with the Father and the Son, and of the same substance and nature; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; that he bears witness to the Truth; that He is the Agent of the new birth; that He baptizes all true believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sanctifying all of them, sealing and thus securing them unto the day of redemption; that He endues, guides, teaches, and helps believers; and that it is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit, the evidence being soul-winning power and not speaking in tongues. (Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; Acts 5:3,4)
We believe that God created the heavens and the earth, including all life, each after its own species, by the direct act and not by the process of evolution. (Genesis 1 & 2; Colossians 1:16,17; John 1:3)
We believe that man, in the person of the first Adam, was created in the image of God, in innocence under the law of his Maker, but by reason of his voluntary sin, fell from his high and holy state; that as a result, the whole race plunged into condemnation and death, so that now all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and that all who reach the age of moral responsibility become willful sinners in thought, work and deed, and so are without excuse before God. (Genesis 1:26,27; Genesis 3; Romans 5:10-19; Psalm 51:5; Romans 1:18-32; Romans 3:10-23)
The New Testament Church
We believe that the local New Testament church is composed of regenerated baptized believers, voluntarily united together for the purpose of worship, edification, observing the ordinances, fellowship, and service; that the officers of the local church are pastor and deacons, whose qualifications, claims, and duties are clearly defined in the Scriptures; that the true mission of the church is the faithful witnessing of Christ to all men as we have opportunity in the local community and unto the uttermost parts of the earth; that the local church has the absolute right of self government, free from interference of any hierarchy of individuals or organizations, religious or political; that the one and only superintendent is Christ, through the Holy Spirit; that it is scriptural for true churches to cooperate with each other in contending for the faith and for the furtherance of the Gospel, with each local church as the sole judge of the measure and method of its cooperation; and that on all matters of membership, policy of government, discipline, benevolence, the will of the local church is final.(Acts 2:41-47; Romans 1:7; Colossians 1:2; Acts 4:4; I Corinthians 1:2; Hebrews 10:25; Acts 20:7; Acts11:26; Philippians 1:1; I Timothy 3:1-16; Titus 1:5-8; Hebrews 13:7, 17; I Peter 5:1-5; Acts 6:1-8; Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:22,23; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:23-26; Acts 15:1-27; Acts 11:29,30; Acts 13: 1-4; Philippians 4:14-16; Acts 20:28,31; I Corinthians 5:1-6,11)




Our Music Ministry plays a vital role in helping to prepare the hearts of the people to receive the Word of God. Congregational singing and the special music all are Christ-honoring in both words and music. Your heart will be stirred by allowing the Lord to minister to you in song.



We are passionate about studying God’s Word and seeking to apply it to our daily lives. We offer life-stage classes from young children to senior adults in order to effectively learn more about our Great God and wonderful Savior in whatever phase of life you are in. 



Our Children’s Ministry is so important to us because our children are the next generation of believers. We offer Children’s Church, age-divided Sunday School classes and AWANA classes to our kids. Our investment into our children is vital as we lay up treasures in heaven.


Staying up with the latest technology is important. We desire to grow in this area and most effectively use technology to further the gospel and discipleship ministry of our church. Thank you for your patience as we implement useful aspects to this area of our ministry.


We have all been given the command to “GO” from the Lord and it is our personal responsibility to be obedient. We support a host of Church-Planting Missionaries as well as many other missions entities here at Bethel. Our desire for missions is to be invested in the spreading of God’s Word all around the world.


Rockwell Christian School has been a part of this ministry since 1976. Our purpose is to partner with parents to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord while striving for academic excellence.
