Our Mission & Vision

The mission of Bethany friends Church is to love God and to love others. The vision of our community is to connect with God, to lead by His example of service, to care for others as He does, to equip believers through His word, and seek those who do not know Him.  

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
