The Bethel faculty has approximately 75 full-time members in the Division of Arts and Sciences, Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the School of Nursing. Full-time faculty positions consist of 24 hours of teaching per academic year plus non-teaching assignments (committee work, advising, etc.).

Bethel has a traditional seven-year tenure system; some credit can be given for years of service at other institutions. Tenure and promotions are based on the four responsibilities defined for faculty: teaching, scholarship, institutional service, and spiritual modeling and nurturing.

Faculty members are hired from a variety of Christian denominations; all are expected to be active in a local church and to demonstrate the relevance of faith commitments to their disciplines while being mature enough in their faith to disciple students.
