At Bethel our motto is “Loving God, Loving People & Loving Life!”

More than just words, these are life-giving, Bible-based principles that give purpose and meaning to life.

We are finding that the more we love God and seek to make His love known, the more rich and fulfilling our lives become.  His love through Christ Jesus has transformed us and we desire to share His love in our families, our relationships, our community and our world.

It was Blaise Pascal who said there are only two kinds of people one can call reasonable:

  1. Those who serve God with all their heart because they know Him, and,
  2. Those who seek God with all their heart because they do not yet know Him.

Our mission is to help people find and follow Jesus.

Our dream is to be a church that is reaching out to the families and individuals in the Quad City community, sharing Christ’s love with its power to heal the broken, the beaten and traumatized.  We welcome skeptics as well as seekers — our church is a place where the person with doubts and even fears about God can come as they are and perhaps discover for the first time that they really matter to God.  We want to be a place where the discouraged can come and be lifted up, the addicted can come and be set free.

Jesus was very clear about God’s power to heal and deliver, “What is impossible with men is possible with God” (Luke 18:27 NIV).

So, the people of Bethel are ordinary people who serve an extraordinary God.  We are black, white, rich and poor; we are young, middle-age and elderly.  We are real people living real life and  serving a real and mighty God.

You are welcome to come see for yourself.  Come as you are.  We promise to accept you and welcome you to this great adventure of a life growing in God’s love.
