“Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'”
– Matthew 28:18-20
The church doesn’t have a mission.
The mission has a church.
At Bethany, we believe that we are all called and equipped to serve. No matter our age, gender, or race, we are all one in Christ and are all called to one mission. We invite you to serve alongside one another and to give generously to the mission of God.
One of the best ways to grow in your faith is to get involved, to get involved in the mission of God and see lives changed and transformed. We believe that God has given you a unique set of gifts and that He will use those gifts to further His kingdom on earth. We want to partner with you in discovering what that looks like as you take your next step.
When you give, you help people. You help people meet Jesus. You help people engage in meaningful community. You help people to be reached by the mission of God. And you help yourself by learning to trust in Jesus and recognize that all good gifts come from God. We believe that giving doesn’t come out of obligation but in response to a loving God who has called us to be generous.
