Worship Services

Join us every Sunday at 10am 


Bethany Community Church is a place where people can meet Jesus, engage in life-giving community, and everyone is welcome. We believe in creating a space where people can have authentic encounters with Christ, discover their gifts and use them for God’s glory.

Join us for our 10 am Sunday Worship services!

We at the Bethany Community Church are so glad that God placed it on your heart to visit our website. It is no coincidence that God has brought you here. We are a church that believes in connecting with communities, developing disciples, teaching the truth, and leading with Love; so that the world may know Jesus.

John 13:34-35 says,
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

It is within these principles that we open our arms to you, as you continue the process of becoming and growing as a disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ.

God bless you,

Pastor Nathaniel J. Yates Sr.

Our Members




We are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ. As such we believe that we are commissioned to be disciple-makes. To carry out this co-mission we must be willing and diligent in our study of the Scriptures in order that we might be able to rightly handle the word of God.

To this end, all who join with us
must commit themselves to studying in God’s word personally, and corporately with us through worship services, small groups, and or other opportunities to grow in our relationships with our Lord.


Join A Ministry Team - 800x600


We are called to serve. Throughout the life of Jesus, He modeled and taught that we should be servants; not only of our God, but that we would also be willing to serve one another.

To this end we commit ourselves to using our God-given gifts and talents to support the church, our communities, and the spread of the Gospel to all nations.




In order to ensure that we as a ministry can serve our community, one another, and spread the Gospel to the ends of the earth, we commit to financial support the local church.

We extend our worship to the Lord, through the giving of tithes and offerings. We are God to be generously and commit ourselves to sacrificial giving so that others might come to know Jesus. We believe that all the we have is from the Lord, and we commit ourselves to sowing back into the church so that many may reap the Gospel.
