NEW HERE?

Although church is so much more than attending a Sunday service on a weekend, we believe that participating in our Sunday Morning Experience is a great place to start your wonderful adventure.  Our weekend service is where you come and experience Jesus!  Here you will be welcomed by warm, friendly faces as Bethel is filled with people who love God and love each other.  You will enjoy great contemporary music and encounter the presence of our awesome God as we champion an atmosphere that makes the name of Jesus known and makes room for the Holy Spirit to mold and shape our lives into something much more than what we could have ever possibly dreamed.  You will always have an opportunity to receive personal ministry and prayer as we want to see you experience breakthrough, healing, and miracles.  You will also be challenged with an encouraging Bible based message that will help you live out your faith in practical and dynamic ways throughout the week.  Your entire family will be able to participate as there is something available for all ages.

WHY WE EXIST

REAL PEOPLE

We value and put a high priority on authentic relationships, deep friendships, and Christ-centered community. We are not perfect people and, therefore, strive to be real and honest about our struggles. We don’t sugarcoat the truth and we refuse to be disillusioned with religion. We want to be REAL. We exist to build healthy relationships with other believers. We want to build a community that anyone can rely for a helping hand. We do our very best to build a family atmosphere here at  Tulare Bethel Church. When you walk through our doors you automatically become family.

EXPERIENCING GOD

We reach for a higher standard of genuine Christianity and a legitimate worship experience. We want you to know Jesus Christ, not as the supreme celestial being far off in the distance, but as the one who personally loves you and wants a relationship with you. We want you to fully experience His saving grace, His presence, His love, and His power in your life. We exist to serve and grow closer to God. This is our soul purpose here at Tulare Bethel Church. It is our hope and mission that through our services and ministries that you are given the tools to build a better relationship with Christ and to experience His amazing presence. 

REACHING OUT

We want you to experience the life-changing love of God through other people and be able to give it as well. Our heart is that we will be a group of people that are immersed in our community, and our world for the glory of God. We exist to serve others. It is our goal to go outside the walls and serve our community. We hope that when you join our family that you will carry the same ideals with you. We exist not only for our own self interests but the interests of others



OUR CORE VALUES

2 Corinthians 13:14 “…May you know the love of the father, …the grace of the Lord Jesus, … and have fellowship with the Holy Spirit.”

Our core values have been created with the 2 Corinthians 13:14 in mind. From this scripture we have developed what we call the "FOUR P's":  PRAYER / POWER / PAGES / PEOPLE.

PRAYER

  •  

    Intercession

    Prayer is not just one of the things we do, but the main thing we must do if any of our endeavors are going to be successful.

  • Faith

    We live in full anticipation that God will do in our church and ministry those things we are willing to believe Him for and trust Him to do.

  •  

    Worship

    We facilitate a corporate worship experience that invites and protects the presence of God in our gatherings that expresses our passionate love towards God.

POWER

  •  

    Spirit Empower Life

    We embrace the moving of the Holy Spirit and we desire that empowerment for life and ministry.  We expect God to bring His “super” to our “natural” resulting in people finding Christ and miracles taking place.

  • Transformation

    We believe that the Holy Spirit can bring complete transformation to the broken places of our lives and position us to have great impact in the world in which we live.

  •  

    Revival

    We foster an environment towards a move of the Holy Spirit that will shape influence and impact the culture of our church, our community and the world.

PAGES

  •  

    The Bible

    The Bible is the infallible, inspired and authoritative guide for faith and life.

  • Excellence

    We never stop learning and growing, and are committed to continuous improvement and reaching our full God given potential.

  •  

    Relevant

    We strive to communicate biblical truth in a way that is simple and easy to understand.

PEOPLE

  •  

    Authentic People

    We fully embrace the Great Commission and the Great Commandment by Loving God with our whole heart, mind, soul, and strength, which enable us to reach out and love others well and build authentic friendships.

  • Honor

    We honor those who have laid a path before us and we go the extra mile to love and serve others while equipping the next generation.

  •  

    Generosity

    We approach life with an open hand and not a clenched fist, knowing that God will provide what we need to fulfill His will.

PLAN YOUR VISIT

We realize it might be a bit intimidating to attend a Sunday service for the first time, so we’re here to help! Below are some questions and answers that should help make your visit a pleasant one.


  • What are your services like?

    Our Sunday experiences are designed with you in mind. Our worship is very contemporary; we will display the words on a screen to help you follow along. You will experience a powerful, yet simple message from God's Word. Our desire is that Bethel will be a place where you can encounter God and create meaningful relationships with the wonderful people in our community.

  • What time is your Sunday service?

    We are currently a mobile church that meets in a school auditorium, while we wait for our new campus to be completed. Our Sunday service begins at 10 a.m. at Sundale Union Elementary School, 13990 Prosperity Avenue in Tulare.


  • Where should I go when I enter the building?

    The Sundale school auditorium, where we currently gather for our service, faces Road 140 (Lover's Lane). There is parking in the front of the building and also to the south of the building. You can enter through any of the front doors.


  • Do you provide childcare?

    Clean, well-staffed nurseries for infants and toddlers are provided during all church services.


  • Do you have a children's program for the preschoolers?

    Yes. Before our Sunday service begins, you are welcome to drop off your preschoolers in this fun and safe environment. You will need to register (one-time) and check your child in at our check-in center, located outside in front of the main auditorium at the Bethel KIDS pop-up tent. Our preschool guides small children (age 4 to kindergarten) into a safe, creative place that instills biblical concepts through age-specific learning.


  • Do you have a regular children's program on Sundays?

    Yes. Our 1st – 6th graders get the opportunity to engage in captivating environments filled with Bible lessons that will develop their faith, character, and purpose in life. On Sundays, the children join everyone in the main auditorium for the first part of our service (worship) and then are dismissed to have their own exciting time at the KIDS church.

    On the first Sunday of every month, the children will go directly to the kids program at 10 a.m. Once the service is over, we ask that parents please come and pick up their children at that time.

    You will need to register (one-time) and check your child in at our check-in center, which is located outside in front of the main auditorium at the KIDS pop-up tent.

    Children will not be allowed to leave unattended. This ensures a safe environment on our campus at all times.

  • Do I have to give money?

    Not at all; you are our guest. During the service, when the offering plate is passed, you are under no obligation to give.


  • What should I wear?

    While you may see a few people in suits and ties, most are casually dressed, often in jeans or even shorts. Our focus is not on who wears what but whether people are connecting with God and with others. At Bethel we are family!
