History Center


The Baptist General Conference Archives was begun in the 1890s under the support and encouragement of Bethel Seminary Dean Carl Lagergren. A history committee was formed and the collection of documents relevant to the Swedish Baptists and Bethel Seminary was organized. The Baptist General Conference History Center at Bethel is the foremost repository of Swedish Baptist history and in particular, the institutional histories of the Baptist General Conference and Bethel University.
