Our Key Ministries
To fulfil our Vision and Mission, the Church is supported by four Key Ministries (COPE):
Bethel Community Services (BCS) is the community service ministry of the church. She aims to be a vibrant change agent and a visible expression of Christ’s love, care and compassion to the community in Singapore through good deeds and relevant community services.
Bethel Missions Ministry is the outreach ministry of the church. She serves to carry out the Great Commission in reaching and discipling people of all ethnic groups both locally and overseas.
The pastoral ministry of the church has diverse expressions that aim to reach, nurture and develop believers to be Christ-centred, responsible leaders and effective witnesses of God.
The empowerment ministry of the church in the form of the Christian Education and Training ministry (CET) complements the Pastoral Ministry in nurturing members and developing ministers and leaders, thus enabling them to fulfil their destiny.
COPE – a picture of service
According to the Oxford dictionary, COPE means “to deal successfully with something difficult”. COPE is a vest worn by clergy and lay ministers in Orthodox, Anglican, Lutheran, and Catholic Churches at certain occasions. Traditionally, COPE is also worn by academia in university graduation when conferring degrees. This speaks of equipping for service. This is a beautiful picture – placing COPE over our ministries. It captures very well the vision of our church that everyone in Bethel has the potential to serve.
