Purpose Statement: Provide a safe place for those with a wide range of challenges – relational, personal, spiritual – as well as hope and healing through the redemptive compassion of Jesus, His Word, and His Church.

Vision: To be a sought after place of refuge for those inside the church as well as outside the church through the loving, compassionate, and hope-filled Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Church. To provide affordable counseling services for those in crisis and in need, connection for the development of authentic relationships, and training/education for the church to carry the redemptive compassion and hope of Jesus everywhere they go.

Vision Strategy (@ the heart of what we do):

  1. Provide a safe place that is non-judgmental, loving, and compassionate for those in need of counseling services.
    Isaiah 61:3a “To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”
  2. Provide hope for people who are navigating their brokenness and grief through the life-changing gospel of Jesus.
    Isaiah 61:1a “The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted.”
  3. Provide treatment options tailored for the individual and their journey that bring healing and freedom and build on the truth of who they are in Christ.
    Isaiah 61:1b2b “…to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners…to comfort all who mourn.”
  4. Provide opportunities for those in need of healthy connection and discipleship to integrate into Bethel’s classes and growth groups.
    Isaiah 61:4 “They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated; they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.”
  5. Provide opportunities for clients to give back in various ways as they are strengthened and display the transformational power that has changed and equipped them to do so.
    Isaiah 61:3b “They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.”
  6. Provide training and equipping opportunities for the Bethel family to reach out to those with whom they connect and minister.
    Isaiah 61:6 “And you will be called priests of the LORD, you will be named ministers of our God.”
  7. Provide opportunities for the community to meet relevant felt needs, allowing for a non-threatening opportunity and bridge into lives that need hope.
    Isaiah 61:11 “For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.”
