We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit; the holy catholic church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.
What We Believe
As followers of Jesus Christ, the mission of Bethel Lutheran Church is:
"We are called, enlightened, and empowered through Christ to worship, witness, and serve"
Bethel Lutheran Church, which was formed with only 32 members in 1917 as a Norwegian Lutheran congregation, is located on its original site just northeast of Brush Prairie. It is the home of Rocksolid Community Teen Center, which provides a safe haven at the end of the school day for 5th through 12th grade students from the Battle Ground and Hockinson School Districts. Sunday morning services at Bethel are available in person, on YouTube Live and by phone patch at 10:00 AM Sunday school classes for children through adult ages are held September 18 through May 21 at 9:00 AM.
Bethel supports outreach programs that run all year round, and could always use another set of hands while other outreach programs are most in need of volunteers, leaders, or funds.
