Because we are made in God's image. We all have genuine value and have something of importance to offer. Our background, position or status does not matter in God’s economy. What matters is our heart and how we live life serving one another in a fallen, broken world. Every believer has been given interests, talents and spiritual gifts to use to glorify God and build up the church. (Ephesians 4:11-12)
We also serve because we take seriously following Jesus' example. Jesus said that He came to serve not to be served, and we follow Him as our model and example. (Matthew 20:28) We desire to be a church where everyone is serving as God intended and designed them to serve. (Matthew 28:18-20)
Serve at Bethany
We have many different opportunities for people to serve on our church campus. Are you gifted with people, maybe Guest Experience would be a great place to serve during our weekend services? Do you enjoy smaller groups; consider serving as a Small Group Leader. Do you have a technical background? We are always in need of those with sound, light, or video expertise. Do you have a heart for the hurting? Our Care Team is looking for people to serve.
We believe that service is a lifestyle and we want serving to be an integral part of our lives. By serving our neighbors in the greater Long Beach area we have learned that the most valuable thing we can bring to a person is the time that we spend with them. We just need to show up where God is already at work and be ready to offer the greatest gift of all, the love and truth of Christ, offered through us.
Our church family is a part of the greater global community, which God has given us the privilege to serve for His purpose. Our purpose is to make disciples of Jesus Christ around the world. We have more than 15 missionary families and roughly 25 international partners and non-profit organizations that we work alongside to achieve this purpose. We have annual opportunities to serve our global partners through global short-term trips.
