Mission: Bethel Presbyterian Church exists to bring people closer to God and one another through the finished work of Jesus Christ. We meet each Sunday to worship together, and learn about our God through the teaching of the Scriptures. We wish to introduce others to Jesus Christ, and the hope God offers through him. We also exist to assist Christians in their spiritual growth by providing clear teaching, prayer, counseling and other resources. We also believe in protecting our heritage and religious liberty by encouraging the application of biblical principles to all spheres of our life and culture. In the application of those principles, Bethel Church extends a caring hand into our local community through various ministries. Jesus said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." This Great Commission is given on Christ's authority. Since Christ's dominion is universal, the gospel must go to the whole world. Such a task begins with each individual, in their own sphere of influence among family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. At Bethel Church, we seek to equip the saints to communicate what they come to know to others with love. Our denomination, the Orthodox Presbyterian Church, seeks to communicate our message throughout the world, both home in America through our Home Missions, and abroad through our Foreign Missions. The Gospel is wonderful news for all men to hear, to reconcile their broken relationship with God, to be forgiven of their sins, and live a righteous life devoted to pleasing our creator. Bethel Church is part of the Mid-Atlantic Presbytery.

The "Tithe"?

"The Tithe" is an unfamiliar concept to most Christians. It's only mentioned a few places in the New Testament, and then only in passing. What was the tithe? What did it mean? What (if any) application does it have to us today? Join us this Sunday May 19 at 11:00 AM.

The San Diego Synagogue Shooting

The shooting at Chabad of Poway Synagogue in San Diego as the congregation observed the end of Passover this past Saturday did not come to my attention until Sunday afternoon. Even then, although I was shocked and saddened by it, the event was on the other coast and such events have become (sadly) too common to mark every one of them.

The attacker was 19-year-old John T. Earnest who shot and wounded Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein and killed Lori Kaye, a 60-year-old woman who heroically shielded her rabbi from the murderous assault. Two other people were also wounded in the attack.

I was shocked and horrified to receive a communication from the General Assembly offices of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church that Earnest was a member of the Escondido Orthodox Presbyterian Church.

By engaging in this despicable, evil, and murderous action Earnest has betrayed everything that the Orthodox Presbyterian Church teaches and stands for, and has denied the very gospel of Jesus Christ.

Please pray for the Congregation of Chabad of Poway, especially for the family of Lori Kaye. Please pray that justice will be served against John Earnest.

Pray also that God in his grace would not allow this despicable act to drive a wedge between our Church and our growing friendships with those from the Jewish community, but that they may be used by God to open up paths for closer friendships and better communication, and form an opportunity for us to share the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Worship the Risen Christ

[04/19/19]   "Only [God's] grace accounts for his extraordinary loving condescension in becoming a man and suffering the shame and agonies of the cross to redeem his people. Only God's grace explains Jesus' willingness to undergo the period of excruciating separation from his Father for the first time in all eternity, so that we, the guilty sinners who deserved to be separated forever from his light, might inherit his promises instead ... The truth is that sin -- our sin -- had to be paid for. There had to be a day of reckoning for all the wrong things we have done ... True payment was made for true sin, so that there could be true grace for true sinners." [Iain M. Duguid]

"I AM the Resurrection?"

In John 11 Jesus said, "I am the resurrection." He didn't say, "I'm the Lord of the resurrection," or "I preside over the resurrection," but "I AM the resurrection." What could he have meant by that? We'll be finding out this Easter Sunday at Bethel Church at 11:00 AM. Please join us.

Come join us this Sunday!

Help with What?

What would make your life better? Can Jesus provide what you need? In order to be able to recognize a savior you needed to determine what it is that you need to be helped with or delivered from. That's what we'll be talking about at Bethel Church this Palm Sunday. Hope to see you there.

Sabbath? Is that something that concerns Christians? What does it mean? Come to Bethel Presbyterian Church this Sunday, March 31 to find out.

Due do current and deteriorating weather and road conditions, all services and activities at the building of Bethel Presbyterian Church as cancelled for tomorrow, Sunday January 13.

I'd recommend reading and discussing together as a family the book of 1 John, praying for our missionaries, and our own opportunities for witness of Word and loving deed in our community.

Stay safe and warm,

OPC Disaster Response

FIRES IN NORTHERN CA

Pastor Gene Crow of Redding Reformed Fellowship OPC in Redding, CA, reports the following today:

"This fire we have burning here in Redding, dubbed the Carr Fire, started a couple of days ago and over night on Wednesday exploded from around 6500 acres to 22,000, and this morning it was put at over 44,000 acres, and containment is currently at 3%. It is a very aggressive, quick moving, and unpredictable fire. Firefighters with years of experience are saying that they have never seen anything like it. Two firefighters have been killed battling the blaze. Though the official number of structures lost is at 65, a local news reporter says that he has seen more destroyed homes than that just in a short walk through one neighborhood. We are hearing of several friends and friends of friends that have learned that their homes have been destroyed.

The fire has moved from West of Whiskeytown lake into Redding proper, and is burning eastward and is also spreading to the southwest. Over 10,000 have been evacuated, although because of the nature of the fire, authorities have said to not wait for official notices and to just get out of town if you feel it is dangerous. The fact that this fire has jumped Hwy 299 and the Sacramento River shows how dangerous it is. It was 115 degrees yesterday with low humidity, and the forecast for today is 113 degrees, 5% humidity and shifting winds.

A full half of our congregation have either been ordered to evacuate or have evacuated voluntarily. The owners of our church meeting location got hold of me just a short time ago and told us they are using the building as a facility for firefighters and so it will not be available to us this Sunday.

Please pray for all of the needs that you might imagine are present in such a situation and that God would be merciful to the area.

Thank you for your prayers."

Bethel on Sunday welcomed Jonathan F. Catherwood to teach Sunday School. "I had the good fortune to be the grandson of Martyn Lloyd-Jones in addition to being a student of his ministry. Our family is overjoyed that his ministry lives on decades after his being taken to glory, and that the Lord continues to use his sermons and books to advance the cause of His gospel. We hope that God will bless the work of the MLJ Trust and allow us to promulgate his ministry further in the United States, a country my grandfather loved and visited often."
