About Us



New Bethel emerged in 1891 in a community dubbed the “Promised Land” amid a backdrop of plantations and cotton fields.  The DeKalb County congregation first began meeting in a little house perched alongside the Yellow River, where early members were baptized.  “When the river would rise,” the story is told, “the water would come right on into the church and congregants would arrive early, because they knew they would have to sweep out water.”

About Us


Turner Chapel AME has a rich history that dates back to the early 1800s.  Even though it is one of the oldest established churches in Marietta, Georgia, it continues to evolve based on the needs of the community it serves. African American residents of Marietta began their first religious meeting shortly after the settlement of the town.  This was a group of 37 persons of all denominations who desired a place to meet for prayer and worship.  The meetings were held in a log cabin on Task Street (no longer exists) near an abandoned Coco-Cola bottling plant and a tobacco cigar factory.  Turner Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church is the second oldest AME congregation in Georgia.  It was established in 1865. In 1839, the Presbyterian Church vacated their building on the north east corner of Waddell and Lawrence Streets in downtown Marietta. The Presbyterian Church offered the use of the building to the little group which had grown from their original number of 37. In 1854, this Marietta Square location was purchased by freed men and slaves and was called Trinity Church for Negroes and Indians.  The purchase was made and paid for while the free Negroes and slaves were still members of the Marietta Methodist Church. During that time the church operated under the direction of the First Methodist Church which supplied its pastors until the end of the Civil War in 1865.  During the Civil War Trinity’s church was used as a hospital for the Union soldiers.
