Who We Are
The mission of Bethany Presbyterian Church is to build a worshipping community of disciples who live as faithful witnesses for the glory of God, bringing the transforming truth and grace of Jesus Christ to our communities and to the world.
Bethany’s ministry is primarily to the students, young professionals, and young families of the greater Boston area. We seek to be a church that is characterized by the following:
As a worshipping community we recognize our need for the grace of Jesus Christ and His power to heal and transform us in order to be a blessing to each other and the world. We seek to become a church that can be a spiritual family to people from all backgrounds, affirming each person both individually and as a vital part of the body of Christ. Recognizing our identity as those redeemed by Jesus Christ, we will base our community of genuine fellowship, corporate prayer, accountability, and encouragement.
Growing in Faith
Beginning with Sunday service but not ending there, our worship is to be genuine, honest, and transparent before God. With the Word of God as our center and foundation, we seek to grow in understanding and obedience to the Gospel of Christ in every aspect of our lives. We recognize the Lordship of Christ over our resources, skills and gifts, careers, families, and ambitions, and seek to submit our lives to His purposes and His glory.
As a church and as individuals, we are committed to Christ’s Great Commission. We are called to make disciples of all who are in our community, from the youngest child to the eldest among us. As a sending church in the highly transitional city of Boston, Bethany will make the most of its opportunity to equip students, young professionals, and young families to make an impact for Christ wherever God calls them. Our discipleship should overflow beyond our church’s walls as we become agents for God’s kingdom. Starting with our own friends, families, classmates, and co-workers, we will actively share the love, grace, and truth of Christ in thought, word, and deed.
