Inclusive. Welcoming. Discover the Difference.

Bethany Church is...

People who are free.  Through Holy Baptism into Jesus Christ, God has set us free from all that would limit us—our fears, guilt, sin, hate, self-centeredness and despair—so that we might be the kind of people God created us to be.

People who care.  God has set us free for a purpose—that we might spread God’s love to the people around us—hurting people, hungry people, hostile people—all who need to feel God’s love.

People who hope.  Because God has raised Jesus from the dead, we have hope for the future.  We are excited about what God is doing in the world and we look forward to the new world that we believe God is creating through the Church.
