We recognize that many people at one time in their lives were part of a church, but somewhere along the line, they left. People leave churches for lots of reasons – maybe something in their life happened that made them think or feel that they didn’t belong anymore, or maybe they just got bored with the whole thing. At Bethel, we’re far from perfect, but we seek to demonstrate the spirit of love, acceptance and integrity that marked the ministry of Jesus.
What is the character of our gathered worship?
We strive for our gathered worship to include a balance of reverence and joy, celebration and reflection, receiving and offering. Our worship is simple, yet thoughtful and spiritually inspiring. We desire to be welcoming to guests and seekers and, at the same time, meaningful for believers and non-believers alike.
What are the values of our gathered worship?
We place a high value on worship that is Biblical and Christ-centered. Because we believe God’s primary means of communication is the Bible, his Word to us, we give the sermon prominent placement and time in our services.
Through visual, spoken and musical means we seek to engage the worshipper and invite participation that is meaningful, appropriate and honest. Bethel intentionally strives to people of both genders and various ages in leadership of the different aspects of our gathered worship.
