Bethel is a word from Hebrew meaning “House of God”. Most of the defining Biblical transformational experiences in the formation of the nation of Israel as a people under God (in the Old Testament) occurred at a place called Bethel. Of a great significance is the Jacob’s vision of a stairway that connects earth to heaven upon which the angels of God were ascending and descending (Gen. 28:12, 13).
Bethel symbolises an arena of transformation, encounter, and change. In the vision of our faith community, we want to see people encounter hope, love, and peace to the point that destiny will be remoulded through a simple faith in the work of Jesus Christ.
