Bethel Chapel is a progressive, Christ-centered Bible-believing community church, whose primary activities are directed towards equipping the congregation for worship, for evangelism, and for Bible-based practical Christian living and service. Emphasis is placed on the practical application of biblical principles in serving the needs of the congregation and in demonstrating the love of Jesus in our neighbourhood. Bethel Chapel is an independent evangelical church whose roots are in the historical Christian Brethren tradition. We come from diverse backgrounds but have a common desire to worship God, to be witnesses to His love and grace, and to serve Him in every sphere of our lives. We believe that there is but one God, who created all things. He is eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings; it is the complete revelation of God’s will for the salvation of people; it is the final authority for all Christians in matters of faith and life. We believe in the virgin birth. We believe that salvation is only possible through faith in Jesus Christ who paid the penalty for our sins through His death on the cross, who rose victorious from the grave, and ascended into heaven where He intercedes on our behalf. We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ. We are co-ordinated by a group of men and women, all volunteers, called the Bethel Leadership Team. Among them are the elders, who, with the support of the congregation and through prayer and Bible study, are responsible for leading the church in worship, in understanding God’s Word and in witness. We are entirely self-supporting and rely on the gifts of the congregation. Offering envelopes and tax receipts are available. Offerings are only taken during our communion service.
