At Bethel we believe in the importance of knowing scripture and the doctrines arising from it. God’s Word is the foundation for all that we do at Bethel. In it we learn who God is, how he works, and how we were made to live in praise and service to him.
Whether you are a new Christian of have been one all your life, you can never stop learning more about your wonderful Lord and Saviour.Each person should take responsibility for increasing their depth of Scripture knowledge through personal and group Bible Study.
