Jesus lived a 3-dimensional life of faith — one that related closely to the Father, one that taught and lived within a community of disciples, and one that reached out beyond himself and the disciples to love and serve others. At Bethel, we seek to emulate this 3-dimensional life of Jesus. The words we use to help us remember this and model our lives after Jesus are UP, IN, and OUT!
The UP dimension are those activities and actions that keep us connected to God, i.e. worship, bible study, prayer, etc.
The IN dimension is where we find support and learning and growth within our Bethel community of disciples.
The OUT dimension is when we focus our energies outside our doors and into the world so as to bring the Gospel message of grace to others and to serve with and among those in need.
Therefore UP, IN, and OUT is the language we use at Bethel to determine if our lives together and collectively are being most fully formed into modeling Jesus.
