b-Men is the men’s ministry of Bethel. We exist to reach, build, and empower men to fulfill their God-given destiny. With Christ as our chief cornerstone, here are the four Biblical pillars that define our manhood and mission as b Men.
As Bethel Men, we are doing LIFE together through small groups, The Locker Room, our Men’s Conference, serving in ministry, and various other events. We are strong, courageous, humble, servants, and MORE than conquerors in Christ. WE ARE… b Men!
It’s a word of action that means to occupy a place or position, not one of being passive, shrinking back, or retreat. We want to assist MEN in becoming what God has created them to BE, not what the world expects them to BE.
L – Lordship of Christ
In contrast to the prideful, stubborn masculinity of the world, b Men find true manhood in humble submission to Jesus as Lord of EVERY area of life.
I – Identity in Christ
In contrast to men who find their identity in position and possessions, b Men find their true identity in Christ as loved sons, reliable husbands/fathers, selfless servants, and mighty warriors!
F – Friendship
In contrast to men who are “loners” and keep others at a distance, b Men understand the value of friendship and brotherhood. We are committed to the growth and strength that comes from meeting in men’s small groups and our large group meeting called THE LOCKER ROOM. In order for “Iron to sharpen Iron”, it requires being close enough to create sparks! We are stronger together!
E – Exercise
In contrast to spiritual apathy and personal laziness, b Men are committed to exercise with both spiritual and physical disciplines. Men are called to lead their families and the church in commitment to time in the Bible, prayer, and physical health. “Men make plans … boys make excuses!”
