Although church is so much more than attending a Sunday service on a weekend, we believe that participating in our Sunday morning experience is a great place to start your wonderful adventure. Our weekend service is where you come and experience Jesus! Here you will be welcomed by warm, friendly faces as Bethel is filled with people who love God and love each other. You will enjoy great contemporary music and encounter the presence of our awesome God as we champion an atmosphere that makes the name of Jesus known and makes room for the Holy Spirit to mold and shape our lives into something much more than what we could have ever possibly dreamed. You will always have an opportunity to receive personal ministry and prayer because we want to see you experience breakthrough, healing, and miracles. You will also be challenged with an encouraging Bible-based message that will help you live out your faith in practical and dynamic ways throughout the week. Your entire family will be able to participate as there is something available for all ages.

We are a church on fire for God and we are not afraid to show it!
When you walk through our doors we hope that you feel a rush of hope, peace, and joy. We are a group of individuals that are on fire for God and we are excited to spread the word. It is our hope that you can experience everything that our service offers. If you are looking for a new home church or have never attended church in your life, you will find that at Bethel you will be right at home. Join us this Sunday and experience for yourself what it means to be a part of the wonderful family of God.
We value and put a high priority on authentic relationships, deep friendships, and Christ-centered community. We are not perfect people and, therefore, strive to be real and honest about our struggles. We don’t sugarcoat the truth and we refuse to be disillusioned with religion. We want to be REAL. We exist to build healthy relationships with other believers. We want to build a community that anyone can rely for a helping hand. We do our very best to build a family atmosphere. When you walk through our doors you automatically become family.
We reach for a higher standard of genuine Christianity and a legitimate worship experience. We want you to know Jesus Christ, not as the supreme celestial being far off in the distance, but as the one who personally loves you and wants a relationship with you. We want you to fully experience His saving grace, His presence, His love, and His power in your life. We exist to serve and grow closer to God. This is our sole purpose. It is our hope and mission that through our services and ministries that you are given the tools to build a better relationship with Christ and to experience His amazing presence.
We want you to experience the life-changing love of God through other people and be able to give it as well. Our heart is that we will be a group of people that are immersed in our community and our world for the glory of God. We exist to serve others. It is our goal to go outside the walls and serve our community. We hope that when you join our family that you will carry the same ideals with you. We exist not only for our own self-interests but the interests of others
2 Corinthians 13:14 “…May you know the love of the father, …the grace of the Lord Jesus, … and have fellowship with the Holy Spirit.”
Our core values have been created with 2 Corinthians 13:14 in mind. From this scripture we have developed what we call the "FOUR Ps": PRAYER / POWER / PAGES / PEOPLE.
Prayer is not just one of the things we do, but the main thing we must do if any of our endeavors are going to be successful.
We live in full anticipation that God will do in our church and ministry those things we are willing to believe Him for and trust Him to do.
We facilitate a corporate worship experience that invites and protects the presence of God in our gatherings that express our passionate love towards God.
We embrace the moving of the Holy Spirit and we desire that empowerment for life and ministry. We expect God to bring His “super” to our “natural” resulting in people finding Christ and miracles taking place.
We believe that the Holy Spirit can bring complete transformation to the broken places of our lives and position us to have great impact in the world in which we live.
We foster an environment towards a move of the Holy Spirit that will shape influence and impact the culture of our church, our community and the world.
The Bible is the infallible, inspired and authoritative guide for faith and life.
We never stop learning and growing, and are committed to continuous improvement and reaching our full God-given potential.
We strive to communicate biblical truth in a way that is simple and easy to understand.
We fully embrace the Great Commission and the Great Commandment by Loving God with our whole heart, mind, soul, and strength, which enables us to reach out and love others well and build authentic friendships.
We honor those who have laid a path before us and we go the extra mile to love and serve others while equipping the next generation.
We approach life with an open hand and not a clenched fist, knowing that God will provide what we need to fulfill His will.
We realize it might be a bit intimidating to attend a Sunday service for the first time, so we’re here to help! Below are some questions and answers that should help make your visit a pleasant one.
Our Sunday experiences are designed with you in mind. Our worship is very contemporary; we will display the words on a screen to help you follow along. You will experience a powerful, yet simple message from God's Word. Our desire is that Bethel will be a place where you can encounter God and create meaningful relationships with the wonderful people in our community.
We are currently a mobile church that meets at the International Agri Center in the Heritage Complex, while we wait for our new campus to be completed. Our Sunday service begins at 9:00 am.
Please enter through the doors to the left of the main building entrance. There are flags, signs, and friendly faces there to help you.
A clean, well-staffed nursery for infants and toddlers is provided during all church services.
Yes. Before our Sunday service begins, you are welcome to drop off your preschoolers in this fun and safe environment. You will need to register (one-time) and check your child in at our check-in center, located at the Welcome Center in the lobby.

Yes. Our K – 6th graders get the opportunity to engage in captivating environments filled with Bible lessons that will develop their faith, character, and purpose in life.

Once the service is over, we ask that parents please come and pick up their children at the main entrance to the Heritage Complex.
You will need to register (one-time) and check your child in at our check-in center, which is located at the Welcome Center in the lobby.

Not at all; you are our guest. During the service, when the offering plate is passed, you are under no obligation to give.
While you may see a few people in suits and ties, most are casually dressed, often in jeans or even shorts. Our focus is not on who wears what but whether people are connecting with God and with others. At Bethel we are family!
