As we look forward:
Much like a tree, when it comes to pursuing health in a church community, it’s what happens beneath the surface that matters most. Our hope at Bethany is to continually pursue these four ways to stay rooted in Christ as we move forward:
Formation: Shaping our inner character and outer conduct to conform to Christ, as we respond in obedience to God’s revelation and transforming work in us.
Leadership: Identifying, developing, training, and encouraging God’s people to provide principled, Christ-centered leadership both in church and the marketplace.
Mission: Making the invisible God visible in our community and around the world by embodying the reign of Christ in word and deed.
Care: Carrying out the “one another” commands as we love, encourage, and support each other spiritually, emotionally, physically, and materially as the incarnational body of Christ.
