What We Believe
Our continuing purpose at Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church is to proclaim the gospel
of Jesus Christ by:
  • Growing in God’s Word through worship.
  • Teaching God’s Word to children and adults.
  • Sharing God’s Word in our community and the world.
  • Training believers in God’s Word for Christian service.
  • Gathering around God’s Word for Christian edification and fellowship.
We believe that:
  • the Bible is the true and inspired Word of God and only source of spriritual life..
  • we cannot get to heaven by our own good works.
  • God has provided a way for us to get to heaven. He sent his Son, Jesus, to die on the cross to take away our sins!
  • Jesus also rose from the dead on the third day assuring us that all who believe in him as their Savior will rise from the dead and go to heaven.
  • our lives have meaning because of God’s love for us.
  • the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion are God’s gifts to his believers. He uses them to bring us to and keep us in the faith.
  • the purpose of our church is to teach the saving truths of forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
