Statement of Faith
We, the members of the Bethany Grace Community Church, having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, and, on the profession of our faith, having been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, do hereby covenant with each other before God to:
Love God with all our hearts, soul, strength and mind and to love our neighbor as we love ourselves.
Be a family of Grace; to be committed to each other; to love, accept, and forgive each other until death or God’s call causes us to part.
Live in Jesus Christ and take His commands seriously by studying His word and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to live it out faithfully to bring glory to God.
Strive for the advancement of this Church in knowledge, holiness and comfort; to promote its prosperity and spirituality; to sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline and doctrines; and to contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support the ministry, the expenses of the Church, the relief of the poor and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.
To be faithful in prayer for one another and the world.
By God’s grace, we seek to bring honor to the Body of Christ by maintaining a good testimony. We enter into this covenant because we have the common purpose of obeying Jesus Christ, and because we believe that we need one another’s help to do this.
