Basic Beliefs of Bethany christian church

Jesus Christ

We believe in and worship Jesus Christ as God's Messiah. It is through acceptance of Christ we experience a saving relationship with God. Jesus is the only way to salvation.

The Trinity

We believe in the Trinitarian God as understood to be God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 

Open Communion

The Lord's Supper or Communion, is celebrated in weekly worship and it is open to all at the invitation of Jesus Christ. 

The Bible

God's Word of love and reconciliation, equipping the Church with direction in mission and spiritual food for each person's growth and maturity in the Christian faith.  

The Oneness of the Church

All Christians are called to be one in Christ and to seek opportunities for common witness and service.  Both ministers and lay persons lead in worship, service and spiritual growth.  Men, Women and Youth are encouraged to serve in all facets of congregational life.  

Freedom of Belief

As Disciples, we are called together around two essentials of faith; a belief in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and that Christians are free to follow their conscience guided by Bible study, the Holy Spirit and prayer.  Therefore, we seek to extend both that belief and that very same freedom to others.
