About Bethel Church
Bethel Mennonite Church is called to demonstrate God's love to all generations through a clear message of salvation in Jesus Christ; Christ-centered worship; and preparing God's people for service and ministry.
~~This church is built upon Jesus Christ, the only foundation. ("For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ."
I Corinthians 3:11)
This is the only way to heaven. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus. (“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6)
~~We believe that salvation is by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, who shed His blood and died for the remission of sins. ("For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." Romans 3:23-24)
~~We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the primary authority for faith and conduct. ("All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Who We Are
The people of Bethel are a gathering of all ages and various backgrounds that come together to grow and mature in our faith journeys together. We have a significant number of young married couples with children that have become an important focus of ministry.
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and that Jesus is the only way to salvation and eternal life.
Although Bethel is not closely connected to the Mennonite Denomination, we are still influenced by the early teachings and doctrine of the Anabaptist movement that became known as Mennonite. We currently have some families with strong ties to Mennonite history and traditions, along with many people that come from a variety of other Christian backgrounds. Still others have joined us and are choosing Jesus as Lord and Savior for the first time.
We believe God has called us to take a strong stand on His word, to share the gospel as we live out our calling to serve, and to be a light and source of hope to our surrounding communities and the world.
