Life At Bethel

We’re called to live out our faith and try to be more like Christ.

It’s not just something we talk about. We work hard to understand Christ’s message and try our best to spread his love, every day.

We know this isn’t easy.

It asks a lot from each one of us. That’s why we don’t work at it alone. You'll join a community where we challenge each other to be better. We support each other. We take time to worship and learn at Vespers and Chapel because we want to, not because they’re required.

Live out your faith

And we have a lot of fun while we're at it.

There's a lot going on at Bethel. And every day we're inspired to start something new. Clubs, sports, student events, service projects, study abroad programs, and leadership opportunities, to name a few. You'll have plenty of chances to discover your passions, do things you love, and build lifelong friendships.
