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.

What is the shelf-life of a blessing?” In other words, how long does a blessing have to last to be considered a viable blessing? Ten years? Ten weeks? Ten days? Ten hours? Ten minutes?
bethelpres.com Blessings of this life are temporary, even if they remain for years.
"... We ask that we, as a church and as Christians, would not ignore your command, that we would use our positions in our communities to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God."
bethelpres.com We pray that true justice would be extended throughout our land.
"The underlying theology of BLM is rather synthetic, building on the ideologies of radical feminism, West African spiritualism (divination), as well as Liberation Theology. In many ways, BLM is the epitome of secular postmodernism wedded to the story of the black experience in America. Postmodernism resists clear definition and embodies a defiant relationship to the authoritative and historical institutions that are perceived to hold people captive to unwanted definitions and social structures."
Understand the theology behind Black Lives Matter by reading an article first published in New Horizons.
bethelpres.com The tendency to reduce Jesus to a social liberator, a “radical revolutionary,” is a regrettable perversion of the gospel story because it makes Jesus little more than a political activist with a horizontal mission (social justice) rather than a vertical one (redemptive salvation).
Our fellowship might be outside, but it is still just as sweet.
Worship with us Sunday as we consider 2 Samuel 22:1-51. Please visit https://www.bethelpres.com for directions, livestreaming, and information about our order of worship.

OPC Disaster Response
"The coronavirus pandemic may be the biggest call to action for OPC deacons in most of our lifetimes. This pandemic is certainly a disaster! But, it’s a special kind of disaster in several ways: it is characterized more by an invisible wave of fear and sickness than by a visible fire, rain, or earthquake; it is local, regional, national, and even global; the impact of this disaster is physical (sickness, even to the point of death), spiritual (fear of the unknown, especially the fear of death), and financial (lost jobs and incomes).
Ministry of Mercy
What better time for an active, even proactive, ministry of mercy? In one of the most comfortable nations in the world, deacons in our churches are rarely on the front lines of disaster. Until now! The ministry to “shut-ins” has gone from a ministry to a few individuals to a ministry to the whole church in just a few weeks. Deacons in most churches are actively seeking to assist the elderly and most vulnerable with groceries, enabling them to shelter in place without risking exposure to this virus that is so threatening to their health and well-being. Deacons are also making preparations for caring for those who may contract COVID-19 and need to receive care without infecting others. Deacons are planning for the impact of lost income on their families and looking for ways to bring financial assistance.
Further, many deacons have been called to action to assist with the logistics of online worship services and the collecting and receipting of the gifts of God’s people."

Having Jesus as King means that Christians submit to his rule, which rule is found in his Word, the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. Yet American theological trends over particularly the last forty years have caused the DNA of American Christianity to mutate cancerously, as though the whole of Christ’s law were summed up in one word: “Do as you please.”

Generosity spans the globe. Our denomination tried to assist an overseas church as it experienced the early effects of the pandemic. Now as the virus spreads rapidly in the United States, another church sent surgical masks here. This week Bethel gave a portion of them to people serving on the front lines including the Leesburg Police Department and Tree of Life Ministries. We maintained social distancing with doorstep pickup.
