A CHURCH FOR THE CITY

Bethel exists to help build a great city for all people through the Gospel and urban renewal.  

We gather to grow and belong as a community for our community.  

"Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you ..." Jeremiah 29:7

We are a Community and a Family

Whether you are a permanent resident in the great city of San Francisco or you are here temporarily, we all need a place to belong.  We all need a community within our community that knows us and cares for us.  This is what you'll find at Bethel.  Because the gospel changes our hearts through the acceptance of God, it makes us into people who can be honest and transparent about our life journeys, and grow together in loving relationships.  We gather together as one community, seeking God, supporting one another, learning and worshipping together.  Bethel is made up of people just like you.

We Are A Church That Gathers To Worship

Church can be an intimidating place to visit — especially if you don’t know what to expect. So when we meet on Sunday mornings, we want every person to experience what the gospel means both spiritually and relationally at our Sunday worship services. Through our shared story of forgiveness, grace, and love of Jesus, we seek to experience what it means to know God. We do this by singing songs of praise to God, praying to Him, learning from the Bible, partaking in communion and by building genuine relationships with each other.

We Are A Church That Cares For The City

We are a church community that desires to see the city renewed and to see the broken become beautiful again. We desire to serve within the city for the flourishing of people, working for their peace, security and well–being. We desire to bring the renewing power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to the city without abandoning the culture or becoming lost in it. The more we experience and celebrate the power of the gospel, the further we will take it into our city with a passion for others to experience it.
