About Us

Affiliation:

Bethel Presbyterian Church is a congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian denomination. Follow the link for details for a broader picture of the history and commitments of our denomination.

Statement of Faith:

Bethel is committed to the historic Christian faith as taught in the Bible and summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith, Larger Catechism, and Shorter Catechism.

We welcome all to worship with us; we admit to membership those who confess Jesus Christ as their only Savior and Lord of their life. The church is happy to serve non-members as well as members.

Mission Statement:

Christ has commissioned his church to 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 that I have commanded you.

We resolve to be faithful to this call as a worshiping community by faithfully preaching God's Word, by properly administering the sacraments, by lovingly exercising church discipline, and by aiming for the glory of God in all things.

We strive to honor the Bible as the infallible Word of God by teaching all of its system of doctrine (as contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Catechisms), by embracing all that it promises, by obeying all that it commands, and in so doing, always being reformed by it.

We desire to guard the stewardship of the gospel and its sovereign grace by exalting the Lord Jesus Christ in his perfect obedience, his satisfactory death, his powerful resurrection, and his second coming; and by inviting all to repentance and saving faith in Christ alone.

We seek to nurture the growth of the communion of saints in our mutual responsibilities by encouraging each other to love God with all our heart and to walk in holiness, by loving and praying for one another, and by serving one another through hospitality, fellowship, acts of mercy, and the gifts of the Spirit.

We answer God's call to the world as individuals by loving our neighbor, by testifying to our hope in Christ, and by being the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We answer God's call to the world as a body by reaching the community with the gospel, by partnering with those who take the gospel to the ends of the earth, and by praying to the Lord to send out laborers into his harvest until he returns to gather his church.
