Mission Statement

With a student-first philosophy, Bethel College exists to cultivate the ministry call of Christian men and women to fulfill their destiny through sound Biblical education and leadership development.

Motto - “Cultivate the Call”

Philosophy of Ministry

It is the desire of Bethel College for each student to experience both the spirit of Bethel Church and the academic training of the school. Bethel College and Bethel Church, together, are able to prepare students with both correct theology and ministry experience to impact the entire world.

Bethel College also demonstrates the biblical model of the five-fold ministry spoken of by Paul to the Ephesians. This ministry model prepares and equips the Body of Christ for ministry by promoting both the gifts of the evangelist and pastor along with the apostle and prophet (Ephesians 4:11-12). Students prepare for ministry as they receive anointed teaching from five-fold ministry leaders in the classroom and from the ministry context of a dynamic local church.

Bethel College Strategy

To fulfill our mission, our three-fold strategy is:

  1. To equip individuals to minister more effectively in local church ministry. Students minister in the local church's ministries and outreaches including home-group programs, local evangelism, Christian education, and leadership training programs. 
  2. To equip individuals for cross-cultural ministry. Students serve overseas, to train and equip national leaders to effectively minister to their own people. Bethel College desires to see students minister overseas through the international ministry of Bethel Church, other churches, or through Bethel College's network of partnering missions ministries. 
  3. To equip individuals entering full-time credentialed ministry. 
Students who have the calling to full-time ministry can educationally prepare to pursue ministerial credentials through their Bethel College course of study.
