Bethany holds to the EFCA Statement of faith. Anyone is welcome to attend and explore the message about Jesus and study the Scriptures. If you seek to become a member we will offer a course that covers these beliefs.
In 1950 three groups of “Free Churches” merged and made one church. At that time a Statement of Faith was produced. This is the statement contained in Bethany’s constitution. We ask members and officers to be in agreement.
In 2008 the EFCA completed a process of updating our Statement This statement mainly adds clarity to our beliefs and grounds them more strongly in scripture and in church history. The only significant removal was the statement that the Return of Christ is “imminent”. This shows that there are a variety of views on the End times.
