About us

Bethel Christian Church is a non-denominational church worshipping within the building of the Presbyterian Church at Norwood South Australia.

We hold services and study groups in English and Mandarin, to which all are warmly welcome.

Our congregation consists of people who have grown up in the Australian culture and those who have moved to Australia from various parts of Europe and Asia. Many of these people have come from different denominational structures and traditions, but who are united in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Ministry Focus

I will turn toward you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will confirm My covenant with you. (Leviticus 26:9)

This Scripture directs our hearts to the faithful Father, the Creator and covenant God. His great desire for his people is clear. His determined plan to make that desire a reality for his glory and the blessing of humanity secures our hearts in his grace.

We love the grace of God’s covenant love because through it he has brought us to know and love him. His great glory is to bring us into communion with himself, not simply give us information about himself. We see and delight in the ministry of Jesus Christ who has made the Father’s covenant communion with us a part of our humanity and every day relationships.

Our Beliefs

As a church we affirm the ecumenical statements that have united Christians throughout the last 2000 years - the Apostles, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds.

We seek to uphold and proclaim the Gospel as embodied in the Lord Jesus Christ, proclaimed by his Apostles, recorded in the words of the New Testament, and affirmed by the Church throughout the Christian era. This Gospel is the good news of the grace of God the Father, displayed in the redeeming life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the Son, and brought home to people's hearts through the work of the Holy Spirit.
