BETHESDA CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,WELCOME!

WHY 'BETHESDA'?... In the Gospel of John Ch.5:2 the pool called 'Bethesda' (Heb. : 'house of mercy') is mentioned. Jesus healed a man there who had been sick for 38 yrs.! We believe that God still heals today; body, soul and spirit, because Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.(Heb.13:8).    

WHERE DO WE MEET AND WHEN?...We were currently meeting at.. ..... ....

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?...

WHAT IS OUR VISION?... * To make Christ known worldwide. * To make disciples of The Lord Jesus Christ. * To be His witnesses in the local community. * To obey The Lord's Commands, by baptising new converts and celebrating the Lord's Supper. * To be a centre for prayer and worship. * To exalt The Lord Jesus Christ in all we say and do. * To assist the poor and needy,wherever and whenever we are able. {Matt.28:18-20}
