our mission

At Bethany, our mission is to "make disciples who grow from saved to servant to disciple-maker by loving God, growing together, and serving the world."

We believe the church is more than a building or gathering once a week.  The church is made up of people who are empowered to live out a specific lifestyle, call and mission:  loving God, growing together, and serving the world in Jesus' name -  to know Christ, make Him known, and help others do the same.  We call this discipleship.

Discipleship is a lifestyle of giving and receiving; it is a process which functions at its best within a community of people who seek to "sharpen" one another in love and service, to please God above all else.

We believe God is calling us to be a church that is multiplying transformational communities across the Quad Cities.  

We invite you to join us in learning more about Christ and how we, as a church family, may love and serve Him better together.

step 1: LOVING GOD

Discipleship at Bethany starts with entering into a loving relationship with God through Jesus Christ.  We seek to help people establish and develop that relationship in our Worship Services.

step 2: growing together

The second step in the discipleship process is to grow together as disciples of Jesus Christ.  At Bethany, this is accomplished through Small Groups.

step 3: Serving the World

The next step in the discipleship process is to make serving God a way of life.  We offer many different opportunities to serve at Bethany and encourage everyone to get involved in one or more of our teams.
