What is most important to us:

In partnership with the Youth & Family Institute, Bethany is using 5-4-3 Making Your Ministry Count as a means of passing on the faith.

The Five Principles: What it means to be the church in the world

  1. Faith is formed by the power of the holy spirit through personal trusted relationships -- often in our own homes.

  2. The church is a living partnership between the ministry of the congregation and the ministry of the home.

  3. Where Christ is present in faith, the home is church, too.

  4. Faith is caught more than it is taught.

  5. If we want Christian children and youth, we need Christian adults/parents.
