Mission & Vision

To know God and make Him known...

The Mission

Bethel exists to glorify God, point people to new life in Christ and help them follow Him as a way of life.
Therefore, everything we do - first - is for the glory of God, to praise Him, His work and submit to His will. Second, is designed to draw people to the free gift of eternal life, which comes only by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. And, having accepted Christ, Bethel seeks to train believers to, not only live as disciples of Jesus, but to make new disciples by pointing others to this free gift. 

The Vision

The vision of Bethel Evangelical Free Church is to see a community of disciples of Jesus in the Lake Region, who know God and actively, intentionally want to make Him known. 
Therefore, we individually and collectively strive to  live as He lived and love as He loved, inspiring those around us to find new life in Him as well. We believe, as we imitate Christ, that people will see Him, want to know Him... and then inevitably want to make Him known. 


We believe children can comprehend critical truths – God made them, God loves them, and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. We also value the variety of learning speeds and methods present in children and aspire to provide discipleship opportunities for each at their level.


We believe that students can take ownership of their faith by having a personal relationship with Christ, a relatable salvation testimony and gospel literacy to point others to new life in Christ. We also believe that students live in a spiritual battleground, surrounded by people - both peers and those older and younger who the enemy is simultaneously using to draw them away from Christ, and who themselves desperately need the good news of Christ's redemptive work.


We believe adult disciples are meant to both point people to new life in Christ, and help new believers follow him as a way of life. We believe in actively training believers to grow their own faith, their own personal relationship with Christ as the foundation for their ongoing purpose, to make disciples.
