Bethel Baptist Church is a congregational church that is committed to serving Christ in the manner prescribed by the Holy Scriptures. We believe that every New Testament church should be characterized by four key activities. These activities include the following:
We believe that we should love the Lord our God with our whole heart, mind, soul and strength. Loving God is our highest call. All ministry flows from a personal relationship with and worship to the living God.
Equip the Saints
The Bible reminds us that we being many, are one body, joined and fitted together. We are a spiritual family. We believe in mutual ministry “for the equipping of the saints, for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12). Thus, we meet in both large and small groups to be trained according to the Bible, which we believe is the “owner’s manual” for our lives.
Our desire is for deep personal relationships to develop through the working of the Holy Spirit in which we practice the “one anothers” found in Scripture.
Evangelize the Community
Jesus reminded His disciples, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matt. 28:20). We desire to reach out to the community that God has placed us in, and the world in which we find ourselves. Our desire is to bring people to Jesus Christ, so they may receive Him as their Lord and Savior.
