At Bethany, we believe that you can belong before you believe. We know that following Jesus is a process and we want you to have the freedom to explore questions and journey with us.
We believe that Jesus wants to be in relationship with you. No matter what you’ve done or how you’ve lived, Jesus wants you just as you are right where you are. We also believe that your story is significant and important. You matter to Jesus. We also know that following Jesus is far from easy and that everything doesn’t become “perfect.” Our hope is that we can help you take your next step in your relationship with Him.
Read Your Bible
We believe the Bible is central to the way we understand our faith and live out following Jesus. God’s word—the Bible—is the primary way He speaks to us. We know that the Bible can seem pretty intimidating if you’ve never read it. We want to make it easy for you to get started and build a habit of spending time with God by reading His word every day. We suggest starting with the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), 4 books that speak of Jesus’ life. You can read them online here, you can download the YouVersion Bible App, or ask us anytime you’re in our building and we would be happy to give you a Bible.
Become A Christian
Becoming a Christian doesn’t mean that you have all the answers or that you have every element of what you believe figured out. Following Jesus is a daily decision to love God and love others. Becoming a Christian is a major step and we celebrate with you when you feel ready to make that decision. If you’ve decided to follow Jesus or you have questions, we would love to meet with you.
