BETHANY’S VISION

“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”

Habakkuk 2:14

OUR CORE VALUES

Message of the Cross

United with Christ. Living in His victory. We are transformed through union with Christ who was crucified for us, as us, and in us. We live daily in the victory of Jesus – cleansed by His blood and freed from sin’s control by the power of the Holy Spirit.

(I Corinthians 1:18; John 15:5-8; Romans 6:22; Ephesians 1:17-19; Galatians 2:20)

Centrality of Prayer

Loving God. Praying His kingdom come. We believe living the Great Commandment precedes fulfilling the Great Commission. Daily surrender, worship, on-going prayers and intercession empower God’s people and advance His Kingdom on earth.

(Matthew 6:9-10; 9:35-38; 22:37-39; Isaiah 62:6-7; Isaiah 56:6-7; Luke 18:1-8; John 14:15-21; Acts 1:8)

Reach All Peoples

Finishing the task. Hastening His return. We take the Great Commission literally – to reach all peoples in all nations, through all areas of society, and for all generations. We demonstrate and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus in all the world – hastening His glorious return.

(Isaiah 9:6-7; Matthew 24:14; 28:18-20; 2 Peter 3:11-12; Revelation 7:9)

All-In Committment

Joining God. Working together. “Count us in!” We abandon everything to join God in collaboration with others in the global Body of Christ. We love, honor and respect each person’s unique part in God’s plan of extending His kingdom to where it is not.

(Matthew 16:24-25; John 17:20-23; Romans 12:4-6; Ephesians 4:15-16; Philippians 2:2-8; Psalm 133)

Faith-filled Initiative

Doing what we can do. Trusting the Holy Spirit. We do what we can do and give what we can give as acts of worship. With creativity and excellence we give our best efforts in mission and business initiatives, trusting the Holy Spirit for exceptional results.

(Nehemiah 4:6, 14; Mark 14:8; Ephesians 6:7-8; Colossians 3:23-24; Hebrews 11:6)

Statement of Faith

We have been enlightened, enriched, and edified by many streams of Christian truth, and do not seek to distinguish or divide ourselves from other members of the Body of Christ. This statement, however, describes the fundamental truths in which we believe and by which we seek to live.

  • We Believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God, without error in the original manuscripts.
  • We Believe that there is o­ne God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We Believe in the full deity and the full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ – two distinct natures in one person.
  • We Believe in Jesus’ virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, his vicarious and atoning death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory.
  • We Believe that man was created in the image of God, that he was tempted by Satan and fell, and that all following Adam have sinned and are sinful; that repentance toward God, faith in Jesus Christ, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary for salvation.
  • We Believe that followers of Jesus Christ are called to sanctification through identification with Jesus Christ in His death and resurrection.
  • We Believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, empowering, and gifts the Christian is enabled to live a life of godliness and effective service.
  • We Believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to the resurrection of life and the lost to the resurrection of damnation.
  • We Believe that all followers of Jesus are to be committed to the fulfilling of the Great Commission as found in Matthew 28:18-20 and are to be involved in making it possible for the Gospel to be preached to all the peoples of the world.
