Doctrinal Statement

At Bethel, we believe...

One God

In one God, Creator of heaven and earth; Spirit, Light, Love, and Truth; eternal, almighty, infallible, and unchangeable infinitely wise, just, and holy, and that God eternally exists and manifests Himself to us in three Persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

In Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the eternal Word manifested in flesh; that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, and that He is true God and true man. In His sinless life, His miracles, His baptism by immersion, in His vicarious, substitutionary and redeeming death, Christ received in Himself the penalty of man's sin; in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension and in His personal imminent and premillennial return for His redeemed ones, followed by His coming in glory to judge the rebellious and to establish His millennial reign.

The Holy Spirit

In the Holy Spirit, in His personality, that He is God, and that His work is to convict men of sin; to regenerate, indwell and set the believer apart to a holy life; to keep and empower the believer day by day. He is the Teacher of God's Word and the Guide for the daily life.

The Bible

That the whole Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, is verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings, and is the supreme and final authority in faith and life.


That man, having been created pure and in the image of God, is by his own sin fallen from grace, that in consequence, all have sinned, are guilty and lost, and absolutely incapable of saving themselves by their own works, being dead in their trespasses and sins.

Saved by Grace

That we are saved solely by grace, through faith in the blood sacrifice, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

Eternal Life 

In the eternal life and everlasting blessedness of the saved (John 10:27-28).The eternal judgment and punishment of all who reject our Lord Jesus Christ; "This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life, was cast into the Lake of Fire." (Rev. 20:14,15).

The Fall

That Satan is a person, the author of the fall, and that he shall be eternally punished.


In the bodily resurrection of all men, the saved to eternal life, and the lost to judgment and everlasting punishment.


That Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper to commemorate His death till He comes. That Water Baptism by Tri-Immersion is a symbol of the believer’s union withChrist in His death and in His resurrection.

Christian Living

That the Church of Jesus Christ is composed solely of those who have been redeemed and washed in His blood, and regenerated and sealed by the Holy Spirit, and that they are saved to serve; and that it is the responsibility and privilege of all who are saved to seek to win others to Christ, to the “uttermost part of the earth;" That they must seek to live a holy life, to separate themselves from and forsake all that might dishonor God, or cast discredit on His cause, or weaken their testimony.

Lord's Sacrifice

The body as well as the soul was purchased at Calvary in our Lord’s atoning death, through His shed blood (1 Cor. 6:19-20); that salvation is a practical thing whereby the separated Christian may experience Christ to be the answer to every need for Spirit, soul and body.
