We believe God intends for our worshipping community to be grounded in God’s love, centered on Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit in order to be a blessing to our world, our city and one another.
Our Purpose -
What is character? It’s not who we aspire to be, but who we are.
Corporate worship is the heart of Bethany, linking us to God and one another
Bethany’s unity is centered on Christ, which allows for diverse and creative approaches to worship and Christian life together.
Small group fellowship and using our gifts in service is our doorway to community and connection in the church and world.
Bethany values and practices lay leadership in all areas of ministry.
We pray, listen, study scripture and actively wait, anticipating that the Holy Spirit will guide us.
What makes Bethany fairly distinct among other Presbyterian churches is the way we hold together five historic Christian traditions.
The reformed/evangelical tradition shows itself in a high view of the authority of the Bible and the call to personal faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
The charismatic tradition can be seen in a desire to be attentive to the leading of the Holy Spirit and an openness to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The holiness tradition is visible in a desire to be obedient and holy and to glorify God in all areas of life.
Social justice is manifest through our Wednesday Night Dinner program, along with a financial commitment to develop ministries both locally and overseas.
The contemplative tradition shows itself in moments of silence in worship, quiet day retreats, and a desire to make spaces to listen to God.
Presbyterian Church (USA)
We are affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) denomination. PC(USA) is distinctly a confessional and a connectional church, distinguished by the representation of elders—laymen and laywomen—in its government. Our theology is reformed and our form of government stresses the active, representational leadership of both ministers and church members.
