Bethel Township is located along the southern border of Delaware County, in the western suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bethel is bordered by Concord Township to the west, Upper Chichester to the east, Aston Township to the north and New Castle County, Delaware to the south.

The name of the township was recorded as "Bethel Lyberty" and was imported directly from Palestine. The word is said to signify "House of God" being the name of the second Hebrew letter (Beth-el) which is made after the fashion of a Hebrew house. Bethel Hamlet was settled at a very early date, and was probably composed of the first rudely constructed dwellings of the early immigrants who built them near each other for safety.
