      Our Name

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.
