Bethany Baptist Church is a group of ordinary people and families who live pretty ordinary lives. The church consists of old and young people, singles and married couples, people who come from different racial backgrounds and cultures but there is one thing that binds us together and that is the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We are not a perfect people with perfect lives. We face our daily struggles just like all people. But we do believe that the Bible has the answer for all our spiritual needs and that God is faithful in answering our prayers and giving us the grace we need to overcome the challenges we face.
We believe the Bible to be the very Word of God, inspired by Him fully and therefore completely sufficient for living a life of faith and obedience to Him. The Bible tells us how one can get right with God and enjoy a relationship with Him through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. It also tells us how to live our lives in the home, in marriage, in the work place and society in a way that brings glory and honour to His holy name. For this reason we emphasise the preaching of God’s Word during our worship services and in our other teaching ministries.
Our worship services on Sunday are the highlight of our week. It is such a joy to come together as God’s people and worship Him. Our corporate worship includes singing, prayer, a children’s talk, giving and the preaching of the Word. On the first and third Sunday of every month we celebrate the Lord’s Table together as believers. As Baptists we practice believer’s baptism, meaning that those who commit their lives to Christ have the joy of publicly declaring their faith in Jesus Christ and being baptised in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In all that we do we seek to glorify our Triune God.
We believe that those who seek to worship and serve the Lord here in Bethany will not only find a family of friends but also a place where they will be able to grow spiritually and use their gifts for the glory of God.
