Why Bethel?


We believe, and know the Bible, in its entirety, is God’s revealed Word, in errantly inspired by the Holy Spirit, and infallibly authoritative for all who submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We also believe…

That there is one God, the Creator and Sustainer of all life, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth, true humanity, and sinless life; in His miracles; in His substitutionary death and shed blood on the cross for man’s sins; in His bodily resurrection from the dead; in His ascension and exaltation to the right hand of the Father where He presently reigns as Lord and High Priest.

That all people are born with a sinful nature and manifest the fruit of that nature early in life; man’s only hope of salvation is through repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins.

In water baptism by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion as the believer’s confession of crucifixion, burial, and resurrection with Jesus Christ and co-union with Him.

In the baptism of the Holy Spirit as the Father’s promise for all believers, empowering them for witness and ministry through the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In God’s call to a holy life separated from sin and corrupted values of the world, and to a life of growth in the character and ministry of Christ, our Lord.

In the Lord’s Supper as a remembrance of our deliverance from sin and as an expression of our shared life and our communion with Him as Lord and Savior.

In the personal return of Jesus Christ and the consummation of this age; in the resurrection of the dead and in His judgement of all humankind; the righteous will inherit new heavens and a new earth; the unrighteous will be banished to eternal punishment.

By faith, we prepare ourselves to move forward, believing and trusting God to keep us in HIS will for Bethel Church.


The vision the Lord has given Pastor Saunders for Bethel requires that we go back to the basics of Prayer, Praise, Fasting and Witnessing for Christ through Teaching, Preaching, Testimony and Evangelism. With these spiritual tools in hand, we as a Church Family, along with our Pastor, believe the Lord will reveal Himself in a powerful manner.
We at Bethel Church continue to have an “Evangelistic Emphasis” as one our major projects. This effort, along with others, focuses on the need for the people of God to be more responsible in the winning of souls for Christ.
We encourage you to join with us in the work of the Lord, for we truly believe Jesus when He said; “All things are possible to those who believe.”
