About Us

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Matthew 28:19-20


Having been called to faith in Christ, moved by the love of God the Father and empowered by the Holy Spirit, the members of Bethany Lutheran Church are committed to be:  

Our God is a “Gathering” God.  

Jesus longs to gather people to Himself!  We gather together to receive His gifts and offer Him our praise. (Matthew 23:37)  

  Our God is a “Connecting” God.  

He doesn’t only connect us to Himself, but to one another.  The Lord connects us to His heart and His purpose and we seek to connect to each other, our neighbors and our community counting others needs as greater than our own.  (Philippians 2:2)

 Our God is a “Sending” God.  

He sent His Son into the world and Jesus sends us to the world as messengers of His good news, ambassadors of reconciliation and instruments of His peace.  (John 20:21)
