Bethel Christian Reformed Church Core Values
We believe that as recipients of God’s grace, we are called to present the gospel message of salvation in loving, sensitive, relational ways in and to our community, region, and world. Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15
We believe the Holy Spirit empowers Bethel Church through each believer using her or his spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 12:7; Romans 12:6
We believe God uses biblical, Christ-centered, and Reformed preaching and teaching, a church immersed in worship and prayer, and the fellowship of believers in service, to transform individuals, families, and the community. Ephesians 4:11-13
We believe Christ’s love saturates every aspect of life! Ephesians 3:17-19
- The love of Jesus Christ moves us to love one another and all people. This includes mutual encouragement, accountability, nurture, support, understanding, and compassion for all who are created in the image of God. Genesis 1:27; 1 John 3:16-18
- The love of Jesus Christ requires bringing together, welcoming and enfolding people of every culture to love and serve one another reflecting unity in Christ, that the world may know him. John 17:21
- The love of Jesus Christ calls us to embrace diversity through sensitivity, respect, appreciation, flexibility, and effective communication. Revelation 22:1-3
We believe we gather for worship, allowing us to experience the unity of Christ’s Body in praise, prayer, preaching, giving, and sacraments, which celebrate Him in ways that are relevant to different cultures, ages, and spiritual needs. Psalm 34:1; Revelation 5:14
We believe discipleship means to nurture one another so each one exhibits the fruit of the Spirit more consistently. Our responsibility is to teach, guide and encourage one another to live a godly life of service and praise. Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Peter 1:15-16, 22
We believe a life of obedience is the greatest expression of gratitude to God for his great love and mercy to us. We demonstrate this gratitude when we “act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God” and when we responsibly care for and use the resources God has entrusted to us. Micah 6:8; Matthew 25:14-30
