“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
– Matthew 11:28-30
We belong before we believe.
At Bethany, we believe that you can come and ask questions and be a part of our community before you profess faith in Jesus. We are all on a journey in our faith and we want to walk with you wherever you’re at. Two ways we believe help in that process are worshipping together and following Jesus.
At Bethany, we believe worship is our response to Almighty God—who He is and what He has done. In worship we honor and glorify God because of His holiness and greatness, and because He has created and redeemed us. Worship is far more than our Sunday morning gatherings; it is how we posture our entire lives in service to God. So when we come together as a congregation, we do so to express this lifestyle of worship through singing, praying, reading scripture, preaching, fellowship, and participating in the sacraments of communion and baptism. It is our hope that in our worship God will be glorified in all we do and say—both as we gather together and as we live our individual lives.
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 know that following Jesus is far from easy and that everything does not become “perfect.” Our hope is that we can help you take your next step in your relationship with Him.
