Bethel

Our Values

Our Mission

Bethel exists to honor God, in every area of our lives, and to make disciples.

Our Vision

To experience the life-transforming power of God.

Our Values

Our values represent our fundamental beliefs. They guide and motivate both our attitudes and actions.

These are the motives behind our passionate pursuit of Jesus.

Lordship

We value obedience. Because Jesus is “King of kings and Lord of lords,” we believe that wholehearted submission to God’s will and His Word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.

Colossians 2:6

Worship

We worship God with our very life. We are called to passionately worship in spirit, truth, in prayer, and in the giving of our time, talent and treasure. We are called to worship in every area of our lives.

John 4:23    Psalm 63:3-4

Relationships

We value long-term, covenant relationships. God has called us to be a spiritual family. In our culture of honor, we fight for relationship, we reject the idea of disposable relationships and choose to walk in love, respect and unity with Him and each other in Life Groups.

Psalm 127:1,3    Ephesians 4:3

Evangelism

We value lost people. Because God’s heart is to reach the lost, we seek to build the Kingdom primarily through evangelism. Practically, this looks like reaching students on the Jr. High, High School and College campuses (approximately 95 percent of people come to Jesus by the age of 25). As we reach the campus, we will have an impact on the future values of society.

John 3:16    Luke 19:10

Diversity

We are intentional. We believe that a Church should be a reflection of the Kingdom of Heaven! Our multi-ethnic, multi-national, and multi-generational congregation is a place where people of every age, from every tribe, nation and tongue can come together to worship the Living God.

Revelation 7:9

Discipleship

Discipleship is relationship. Because Jesus called us to make disciples, our primary focus is establishing biblical foundations, equipping believers to minister and empowering disciples to make disciples in Life Groups. Our primary focus is not conducting meetings, facilitating programs, or building buildings.

Matthew 28:19-20

Leadership

We value leadership development. Because we are called to develop future leaders who will serve in the Church and in the community, we prioritize leadership development. We do this by deliberately creating opportunities for potential leaders, of all ages, to develop their gifts and callings. We empower them through identification, instruction, impartation, and internship.

2 Timothy 2:2
