About Bethesda Presbyterian Church
Through the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit, we trust in the one triune God, the Holy One of Israel, whom alone we worship and serve.
God comes to us in undeserved favor in the person of Jesus who lived, died, and rose that we might belong to God and serve Christ. Following Jesus, Presbyterians are engaged in the world by seeking thoughtful Biblical approaches to the challenges of our time.
Presbyterians affirm that God comes to us with grace and love in the person of Jesus, who lived, died, and rose for us so that we might have eternal life and abundant life now. As Jesus’ disciples, called to ministry in his name, we seek to continue his mission of teaching the truth, feeding the hungry, healing the broken, and welcoming strangers. God sends the Holy Spirit to dwell within us, giving us the energy, intelligence, imagination, and love to be Jesus' faithful disciples.
