Dear Bethel Church,
Dreams are life-giving for individuals and churches. God has always encouraged His people with pictures of the future--whether He was promising “a land flowing with milk and honey” or describing the hope of a new heavens and earth.
A Dream for Bethel is intended to be that kind of an inspiring picture of the future. Adopted by your church leaders at this year’s annual leadership retreat, it describes what we believe God wants us to be and become as a church. It spells out our deepest hopes for the future.
This version of A Dream for Bethel is a revised version of the one created three years ago. Why a revised edition? Because the Spirit of God is always moving. Since we adopted the original Dream for Bethel our church has continued to grow and develop. This booklet reflects that.
I believe you have a special role to play in A Dream for Bethel.
What if you were to connect your talents to the vision described here? Imagine how people would be touched and lives changed.
As you read through the booklet, pray that God will make this Dream come true. lso ask Him to show you the special role He has for you.
