Christian Education

Teaching has always been in the mind of God and it is at the heart of our ministry still today! Whether through systematic instruction in our Catechism and Transformation classes, or through Beth Rapha Christian College & Theological Seminary, Beth Rapha believes in the adequate preparation of Christian laity and leaders and the development of Christian Education programs throughout the church for all ages so that people can be taught how to live holy and in a manner that is pleasing to God! In a time in history when people are falling away from truth, it is imperative that we place a deliberate emphasis in the Body of Christ on the necessity of teaching and living the immutable doctrines of our God.

Church Life

Beth Rapha is a vibrant church with a vibrant Church Life! This means we take an active role in the care for our members in many ways.  Whether it is counseling, baptisms, weddings, baby dedications, prayer and intercession, funerals/bereavement, illnesses, food bank, or if you are simply missing in action — we are committed to draw near to one another and show forth the love of Jesus Christ by caring, sharing, covering, connecting and providing assistance in a healthy way to ensure a compelling sense of community.

“…for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me” (Matthew 25:35-36).

Beth Rapha Outreach Ministry is privileged to reach out to the hungry, the emotionally wounded, the spiritually impoverished. Our mission is to touch hurting humanity with the living Word of God and His love. Our effort is two-pronged, through the international outreach of the WordAlive Mission, as well as the local community-based outreach ministry of Beyond The Walls.

Sacred Worship & Christ-Centered Arts

The Beth Rapha Worship Arts Ministry believes that the creative arts are gifts of God to individuals and the Church. The Worship Arts Ministry seeks to provide the highest caliber arts for worship and to provide teams/ensembles for people of all ages and ability levels. The Ministry seeks to provide music and artistic opportunities that are diverse and to encourage artists to find the presence of God with the creative arts and arts culture. The Ministry seeks to return the creative arts in all their forms to its original guardian – the Church.

Youth Ministry

It is our goal to train our youth to walk in truth and obedience to the Bible, to teach them to worship and honor Christ in all aspects of their lives, then for them to demonstrate a willingness and an attitude for work in the ministry of Christ, which will then lead to an outward difference in their lives and the winning of souls to Christ, and finally this will come full circle by welcoming more teens into Christian fellowship and discipleship.
