Next Steps

Where do I go from here? 

At Bethel, we believe that attending church is only the tip of the iceberg for your walk with Jesus. We believe that following Jesus is as simple as taking a Next Step and that each of us has a Next Step to take. If you have questions about any of our next steps, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or give us a call at 765.246.6780! 



Start a Relationship with Jesus

God’s greatest commandment is not a rule or something NOT to do; instead God calls us to enter into a love relationship with Him through His son, Jesus. Everything we do for God flows out of a love relationship with Him. Once we know Jesus, He calls us to join His mission of telling the world about the hope in the love of Jesus. Pursue a relationship with God by starting to pray to Him and learn about Him by reading His Word; name Jesus the leader of your life and determine to follow His example.

Be Baptized 

If you've made the decision to follow Jesus, Baptism is one of the first steps you should take. Baptism is an outward expression of an inward decision to follow Jesus. It's an opportunity for you to go public with your relationship with Jesus! The act of baptism symbolizes dying to who you used to be and being raised to a new life in Christ. If you've given your life to Jesus, baptism is your next step!

Give Online

Giving is not something we want FROM you, it’s something we want FOR you! Giving trains our hearts to trust God at His word. It doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings when we tithe. We give as an act of worship - a natural response of a grateful heart to a loving God who is the giver of all good things! Because of your generosity, lives are being changed!

Discover How God Uniquely Wired You for a Purpose

 Attending church is just the tip of the iceberg in your walk with Jesus! God created you on purpose, for a purpose, and He has big plans for your life! God has designed us all with gifts, passions, and abilities that are unique to us. (Psalm 139:13-16, Ephesians 1:11, Isaiah 44:2) We are designed to do this life together! We need each other! When all of God's people bring their gifts, passions, and abilities to the table and work together, incredible things happen! (1 Corinthians 12:12-27, Ephesians 3:20) We can only live the fullest life possible when we're living out God's plan for our lives! (Ephesians 1:11, Colossians 1:16) God wants to use YOU to make an eternal impact on the people you encounter in life! (Acts 17:26)

That's why it's so important for each of us to understand how we were uniquely wired by God! We can only reach our fullest potential and experience the fullness of life as God intended it when we know who God has made us to be and we use the gifts God has given us to serve others and build His Kingdom! 

AssessME is a free online software we provide for the Bethel church family to help you get know how God has wired you and how God might want to use your unique gifts, passions, and abilities to impact the world around you! Through Bethel, you have free access to a Personality Profile, a Spiritual Gifts Assessment, and a Leadership Style Assessment to clarify your unique wiring. AssessME also makes suggestions of roles where you might be able to find your fit and make the greatest impact for Christ!
