​We are glad to have you check us out!

Bethany ARP Church is a congregation of men and women who believe in the plain teaching of Holy Scripture. What we mean by that is when God reveals Himself to men in the Bible He means what He says. The most important thing the Lord has shown to us is that we have hope in the gospel message of Jesus Christ. Bethany is a church made up of sinners, seeking by grace through faith to be made more like our Savior each and every day.

If you want to know the newest info check out our Weekly Updates page.

We invite you to check out the site and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to get in touch with our pastor, the Rev. Benjamin Glaser at pastor.glaser@bethanyarp.org.

A place to start may be by watching one of the daily video devotions Rev. Glaser brings three times a week or read one of his Tuesday/Thursday written devotions.

So What Exactly is an Associate Reformed Presbyterian??????

That’s a question we get all the time so don’t worry about not knowing. 😊

An ARP, or Associate Reformed Presbyterian is just a shorthand way of saying that when the Bible says it, we believe it. We trust the Westminister Confession of Faith and the Shorter and Larger Catechisms to be the best summary of biblical faith and subscribe to it as our own.

Associate means we come from a people who believe in preaching the good news of Christ to everyone, no matter who they are, because everyone needs Jesus. Reformed says that we believe the Bible to teach that since we are all sinners who fall short that only by the grace freely offered in the Gospel by the Father and given by the Holy Spirit can any person come to believe and be saved. Now, for that last one? Presbyterian? All that says is about how we do things at Bethany. We don’t leave decisions up to one person, and those who do go about that are chosen by the people, from the people. We are also part of something bigger than ourselves. We see ourselves as an embassy, an outpost if you will, that has joined together with likeminded brothers and sisters throughout the Southeast (and even as far north as Canada!) to bring Christ Jesus to folks who need Him.

What Do I Need to Do to Get Involved at Bethany Church?

Well, the simple answer to that is: nothing. You don’t have to do anything. Just come. Be a part of our church family. See what we are about. Ask questions. We’d love to have you with us and if there is something we can do for you please feel free to ask our pastor, Rev. Benjamin Glaser.

See you soon!

Have a wonderful day!
