What We Believe

We are Bethesda Lutheran, Church of the Living Water.

Flooded by God’s grace, we strive to proclaim God’s love for humanity.  As a faith community we gather all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ, grow as disciples through worship, prayer, and study of God’s Word, and go into the world to share the Gospel in word and deed.  That’s a lot of words; often you’ll see it summarized with just three:  Gather, Grow, Go.

As a congregation we seek to focus on the grace of God.  God’s grace is that wonderful, powerful, undying love we desire from our innermost being.   We can’t help but be drawn to these life-giving waters.  We can’t help but then share this grace with others as God’s love bubbles up within us.

We are a church made up of imperfect people.  We are, after all, human. When we fail we seek forgiveness from God and we strive once again to live out the life of grace, mercy, healing, and forgiveness God has called us to. We’d love for you to be a part of this movement, for the world could certainly use this perfect love shared with all people.

Let God’s grace pour over your life here at the Church of the Living Water!
