Our vision for Bethany Baptist Church is to be a people that are committed to obeying the command of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We believe the two most prominent directives of our Lord form the basis of life within His church. In the gosple of Matthew, Jesus was asked “What was the great commanment of the law?” Jesus responded with what is known as the Great Commandment:
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 22:37-39)
The second foundational directive that forms the basis of our fellowship is found in the deparing Lord Jesus. Before deparing in His heavenly asension, Jesus laid the responsibility of relaying the good news of His saving life in the hands of the church:
“And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15)
Our vision is to be a people that are dedicated to living out the Great Commandment; loving God and loving our neighbor. And also be committed to laboring under the Great Commission; telling everyone the good news of Jesus Christ.
