OUR MISSION

Our mission is to glorify God by making More and Better disciples.

The word disciple can vary from person to person, so it is important to define what we mean when say we want to make more and better disciples.  At Bethel we have defined the term disciple as a fully devoted follower of Jesus ChristWhat does that look like on a daily basis? 

A disciple:

  • Obeys - you allow God truth to affect you and live in obedience  (Deuteronomy 12:28, Proverbs 7:1-2, Matthew 28:18-20, John 14:15, 15:10, James 1:22-25, 1 John 2:3-4, 3:24)
  • Studies - you actively and regularly study God Word for transformation not just information (Joshua 1:8, Psalm 63;6, 119, John 8:31-32, Romans 12:2, Philippians 4:8, Colossians 3:6, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • Loves - you are demonstrating genuine love for God and others (Matthew 5:43-48, Mark 12:30-31, John 13:34-35, Romans 12:9-10, 1 John 4:20)
  • Prays - you display a right understanding and practice of communicating with God through prayer (Matthew 6:5-15, Luke 11:1-14, 18:1-14, Romans 12:12, Ephesians 6:18, Colossians 4:21, 1 Thessalonians 5:17)
  • Serves - you actively pursue knowing and using your spiritual gifts for the sake of His church (Matthew 20:25-28, John 13:14-15, 1 Corinthians 9:19, Galatians 5:13, 1 Peter 4:10)
  • Produces - you are immersed in making more and better disciple while being a visible display of the fruit of the Spirit; consistently exhibiting Godly character (Matthew 28:19-20, John 15, Philippians 1:9-11, Colossians 1:10)
  • Worships - you are aware of our purpose in bringing glory to God, living a life that is wholly surrendered to Christ (Exodus 20:3, Deuteronomy 6:13, Isaiah 6:5, Matthew 4:10, John 4:23-24, Romans 8:4, 12:1, 1 Corinthians 10:31, Colossians 3:16, Hebrews 13:15-16)
  • Grows - your life is characterized by consistent, increased learning and application of biblical truth; living a life of thanksgiving; market by progressive spiritual maturity (Ephesians 3:17, 4:15-16, Philippians 3:12-16, Colossians 2:6-7, 2 Thessalonians 1:3, Hebrews 6:1)
  • Connects - you allow God to shape your life in biblical community (life with others) rather than in isolation (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, John 13:34-35, 17:21, Acts 2:42-44, Galatians 6:2, Philippians 1:5, 1 John 1:3)
