Bethesda Church is a full gospel, spirit-filled church that is associated with the Assemblies of God. We believe that God, through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, extended grace to us and gave us the opportunity to be saved from our sin.  We believe that the empowering work and baptism of the Holy Spirit is still at work today.
