Bethesda Beth-El Worship Center providing ministry to it's members, permanent and
temporary staff, faculty, knowing that some people are seasonally sent to be prepared
and or to prepare others, and than God, as He will is sovereign in their next movement
and destination. We believe we are mindful and move with the Spirit to encourage, and
support them to be obedient to the Spirit of God.
In addition to this Bethesda Beth-El purposes to teach, train and involve its members,
students, staff and faculty for the preparation of ministry, as stated in Ephesians 4:11-16,
using Romans 12:6-8 and 1 Corinthians 12:8-10,28 as our foundational teaching, along
with understanding the inner man/soul (area of the soul = mind/how you think; will/how
you make decisions; affection/how you show your emotions) in each area the strengths,
weaknesses and needs. Whether it is inside this church, another church building or any
place (public or private facilities), that they may do their work of the ministry, as called by
the Father through the might of the Spirit.
Determining to build people and not buildings, our hearts and minds understanding that
people need to be where God called them to be, when they need to be there, not when we
believe they need to go, but help them hear GOD and move accordingly.
Bethesda Beth-El Worship Center is not just a church for fellowship only, but in that
fellowship students, assisted by their professors, from Bethesda Bible Institute &
Seminary and Messenger School of Counseling, are afforded the opportunity to exercise
their gifts and academic learning amongst their peers, and the congregation of students,
staff and members.
Our worship leaders as ministers through song and instruments, bring a message that
is evangelistic and/or prophetic, an a integral part of the Worship experience, called to
transition the students into smoothness for their "Oratorical Message". Students, and
sometimes the professors of that particular class, as they continue the worship
experience, academic in structure, will provide an atmosphere for further instructions and
application of principles to the hearers.
If you are looking for a place to worship, be supportive and encouraged, a place of sound
biblical teachings that are revelatory and prophetic, if you are looking to be a part of
something that sincerely helps the Body of Christ be perfected and matured as saints,
and to do the work of the ministry, as stated in Ephesians 4:11-16, than Bethesda is the

(Bethesda Bible Institute & Seminary and Messenger School of Counseling) those that
are called as ministers of the gospel, pastors, overseers, youth pastors, teachers,
prophets, musicians, worship leaders, counselors, Christian educators, etc., will find
Bethesda the place to start your spiritual walk, continue your spirit walk, to assist with
your spirit walk, while you are serving at your home church.
This includes working along side your pastor, mentor, spiritual leader, that we may help
you get the proper credentials to minister wherever God calls you.
We also believe that we have a model/paradigm, to help youth and young adults on a
neutral ground or territory that is not hostile, but allows for them freedom and liberty to
grow in the grace and knowledge of their gifts, ministry and life calling, and also to be an
asset in their local fellowship.
Gen 35:3 And let us arise and go up to Bethel, and I will
make an altar there to God, who answered me in the day of
my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE SCHOOLS
The Church is unique in that it serves as
a vehicle for Students, Staff to exercise
their gifts and calling, especially those in
transition for other places of fellowship.

In affording our students and staff the
opportunity to operate in this capacity we
know will strengthen all churches as they
receive Preachers, Teachers and
Counselors that are so effective to provide
the assistance pastors, elders or overseers
need to help with serving that
congregation/local body of believers.
