Our chief aim is to glorify our Savior, even Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us that:
- He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works
- We should show forth the praises of Him who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light
- We may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke
In the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom we shine as lights in the world. Holding forth the Word of Life, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death; to guide their feet into the way of peace. (See Titus 2:13, 14; I Peter 2:9; Philippians 2:15, 16; Luke 1:79).
Bethel Apostolic beliefs are rooted in a literal interpretation of the Bible. We believe that the Bible’s teachings are applicable to all times and situations in life.
In fact, rather than becoming less relevant in our fast-paced, highly educated, technology-driven world, the Bible Truth is more applicable now than ever.
We believe salvation is obtained by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. True faith in God should start with turning away from sin and "… Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." After repentance, we believe in water baptism by immersion. Baptism symbolizes the burial of the old sinful nature into the death of Christ, and the subsequent rising of a soul out of the baptismal waters as a new creature in Christ Jesus.
We believe in the laying on of hands, whereby a church elder prays over the new member.
Self-denial, separation from sin and unfruitful works, and nonconformity to worldliness are integral parts of the Christian walk of life and they lead to a life of peace and joy.
Despite trials, temptation, and potential sorrow, God's grace is sufficient for humble hearts to walk with happiness and contentment in the love of Christ and to rejoice in the hope of heaven.
