We believe God is reconciling all things to himself through Jesus.
We believe there is one God who exists eternally as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator and Ruler of all things, and he made humans in his image to cultivate and care for creation as partners who reflect his character and glorify him.
Humankind rejected this role, rebelling against God's design so that creation is now fundamentally corrupted and every person is born as an enemy of God, deserving judgment and unable to live up to God's standards.
But God, out of love for us and for creation, became one of us and fulfilled the role at which we had failed. Because of Jesus' death and resurrection, we can be reconciled to God in Jesus, completely forgiven of our sin because of our trust in him and empowered to join God's mission to make all things new.

Bethel Church was founded in 1933 as Emmanuel Gospel Lighthouse, and over the years God has faithfully used this community of Christ-followers to build His Kingdom in Evansville and in places around the world.
The church has been instrumental in the formation of organizations like Evansville Christian Life Center, Uncharted International, and Evansville Christian School, and it continues to be a house committed to making disciples who actively participate in God's mission.
