Who We Are
Established in 1956, Bethel LC has been a
member of the Buena Park community for
the last 60 years.
We provide an environment that encourages spiritual growth, learning, fellowship, and
service to others through our worship
services and our various activities.
Bethel LC is part of the Lutheran Church,
Missouri Synod (LCMS). To learn more
about the LCMS, visit their web page: https://www.lcms.org/
The name of our church comes from two
Hebrew words: Beth (house) and El (God),
which when put together means
“The House of God”.
And, as God’s House, all are welcome to
come worship with us here at Bethel.
What We Believe
We believe and teach that the Bible is the true Word of
God and that the Bible alone is the source and rule for
our faith and practice.
Therefore, we believe, teach, and confess that:
– All people are born sinners.
– Sin separates us from God and His blessings, and that
sin has been passed down from one generation to the
next since the time of Adam.
– Jesus is the promised Savior who came to live in this
world as a man, suffer and die for the sins of all
mankind, and rise from the dead so that all can receive
freedom from bondage to sin, God’s guidance and
blessings in this world, and eternal life in Heaven.
– We attain these things only through Faith in Jesus
and His grace alone, not by good works or any
effort that man can make.
– God comes to us through His Word and the
Sacraments to save us, touch our lives and bless
us according to His good will.
– Regular worship of God is very important for our
emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.
