Who We Are


(Disciples of christ)


Our Leader

Rev. Dr. R.E. Hedgeman, Senior Pastor

Senior Pastor, Bethany Christian Church – (Disciples of Christ)

Our Beliefs

As members of the Christian Church, We confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.
In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness
and service to all people.

We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another. Through baptism into Christ we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God.

In the communion of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship
and in obedience to Christ. At the Table of the Lord we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ.

Within the universal church we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture. In the bonds of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God
that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end.

Blessing, glory, and honor be to God forever. Amen.

What To Expect

Bethany Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)

Bethany Christian Church is a place where you can come as you are and be changed by the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. The teaching and preaching are engaging and inviting. We believe that each person has received a gift from God and that we are encouraged to use those gifts to glorify God and serve others. We are a congregation where both clergy and laypersons are engaged in the ministry.


We believe in baptism by immersion, and we celebrate the savings acts of Jesus at the Lord’s table every Sunday. We invite you to utilize our website, Facebook page, or YouTube channel to gain a glimpse of who we are; however, you are invited to join us in worship on Sundays at 9:30 AM, Sunday School at 11:00 AM, and Tuesday Bible Study at 7:15 PM via Zoom. At Bethany, we have a saying that goes like this: “We Love You Here!”
