Vision & Mission
The Church has a global vision called: “Successful Bethany Families”
We believe in FAMILY as the core unit where AGAPE LOVE is the foundation. Bethany is the house where Jesus always stayed overnight as the symbol of HIS presence. Martha and Marry of Bethany is the symbol of horizontal and vertical ministry, where both meet creates the symbol of the CROSS. Lazarus of Bethany is the evidence of the power of resurrection.
We believe in family who honour the presence of Jesus Christ, worship and serve HIM as LORD and Saviour wholeheartedly, surely will be blessed, victorious and successful.
- Restoring People who have been reconnected to Christ being restored to a place of wholeness in HIM.
- Resourcing People of different potential ‘being’ empowered to develop their full promise in life by being with Christ & others in HIM.
- Releasing People with different capabilities ‘being’ empowered to distribute the ‘Good News’ in every corner of the city; the country; the continent and the cosmos!

Pengakuan Iman Gereja Bethany Indonesia
Gereja Bethany Indonesia mengakui, menerima dan menetapkan “Pengakuan Iman Rasuli” sebagai pengakuan iman yang isinya sebagai berikut:
“Aku percaya kepada Allah Bapa yang Mahakuasa, khalik langit dan bumi. Dan kepada Yesus Kristus AnakNYA Yang Tunggal, Tuhan Kita. Yang dikandung dari Roh Kudus, lahir dari anak dara Maria. Yang menderita dibawah pemerintahan Pontius Pilatus, disalibkan, mati, dan dikuburkan; turun ke dalam kerajaan maut. Pada hari yang ketiga bangkit dari antara orang mati; Naik ke surga, duduk di sebelah kanan Allah, Bapa yang Mahakuasa. Dan akan datang dari sana untuk menghakimi orang yang hidup dan yang mati. Aku percaya kepada Roh Kudus, Gereja yang Kudus dan Am, persekutuan Orang Kudus, Pengampunan Dosa, Kebangkitan tubuh, dan Hidup yang kekal. Amin”
The Apostles’ Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; he descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven, he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
