Core Values

Our Mission

The mission of Bethel College is simple: ​To send believers into the marketplace who are highly skilled and maintain a spirit of excellence in their field of choice. We are equipping Bethel College students to carry the presence of God into work environments, creating a profound positive impact on the organizations that they serve. This online and in-person school is meant to raise up the best and brightest and train them to demonstrate the wisdom, character, and power of a superior kingdom.

Ultimately, our greatest desire is to see our students serve some of the finest companies in the world with excellence, dedicated to helping these organizations become fully actualized, high-performing companies.

We Believe:

  • There is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent—one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • The Bible to be the inspired, only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
  • Humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him yet we willfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death, and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God’s Anointed One, empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God’s Kingdom on earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is "true God" and "true man."
  • We are saved by God’s grace, through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
  • Anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repentance, believing and receiving Jesus as their Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.
  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister supernaturally. The baptism of the Holy Spirit according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4 is poured out on believers that they might have God’s power to be His witnesses.
  • The victorious redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy—sin, lies, sickness, and torment.
  • The Church consists of all who put their faith in Jesus Christ. He gave his church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ and further advance His Kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, preaching and living the good news of God’s love, discipling the nations, baptizing and teaching them to love and obey God.
  • In the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to rule and reign with His overcoming bride—the church.
  • Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting death.
