WHO WE ARE
Bethel Missionary Church's purpose is to worship God, make disciples, equip the believer, and minister to the needs of others. Providing a place where people can come together united in Christ and worship God.
We are focused on bringing the Gospel of Christ to those around the world and around the corner. Proclaiming the message of salvation and redemption through the work of Christ on the cross. We strive to fulfill the Great Commission by helping people: "connect" with Jesus, "grow" in their relationship with Jesus, and serve and tell others about Jesus as we "go."
We provide an environment for believers to grow and build a personal relationship with God through Bible studies and small groups.
We strive to meet the needs of people in our community through: clothing drives, food trucks, and an emergency food pantry. Through these and other means we try to meet the needs of people as Christ did and taught.
WHAT WE BELEIVE
We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- who is the creator and sustainer of all things (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; 1 Timothy 2:5).
We believe Jesus is God incarnate, yet human. He lived a sinless life, was born of a virgin, died on the cross for all of mankind’s sins, was bodily resurrected and ascended to the right hand of the Father. (John 1:1, 14; Titus 2:11-14)
We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit to convict, sanctify, teach, guide comfort, and empower Christians to live a godly life. (John 16:7,8,12-15)
We Believe the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and thus authoritative in all matters it addresses. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We Believe that salvation is found only in Jesus Christ. All can be forgiven through genuine repentance and faith in Christ. (Titus 3:5; 1Peter 1:3-5)
Baptism and Communion
We believe the Christian ordinances are two : baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe they are outward rites appointed by Christ to be administered, not as a means of salvation, but as a visible sign and seal of its reality. (Acts 8:36; 1 Corinthians 11:24-34)
We believe the church is composed of all believers in Jesus who are united by faith in Christ, who is it’s living Head. The primary purpose of the church is to glorify God and exalt the Lord Jesus Christ until His return. (Matthew 16:18; Hebrews 12:22-24)
