Bethel Apostolic Church mission statement is:
“Born of Faith / Recall the Past / Embrace the Future”.
For a church a “mission” is a broad, brief, biblical statement of what the ministry is supposed to be doing. It indicates:
a) Who we are to be serving,
b) How we as a church will serve these people.
c) Scripture defines the mission of all churches to be that of
making and maturing disciples of Christ at home and abroad
(Matt 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, Luke 24:46-48, Acts 1:8).
Jesus’ response to a test question provides a spiritual roadmap, which is our mission. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind!” “Love your neighbour as yourself!” (Matthew 22:37, 39)
Loving God supremely is a singular focus for all that we do. Every facet of our church life is to be an expression of that love for God. We must never be motivated by false guilt or by trying to fulfill the expectations of people. Loving our neighbour as our self is the evidence of our love for God to the world and fulfils the royal law (James 2:8). As we intentionally practice this royal command of the New Testament, the Lord Jesus will continue to build His church among us.
