Their long term vision is to develop a care center for needy children. The centre would help meet their physical needs but would also provide opportunities for selfimprovement through English teaching programs, technical and vocational skills training, counseling and more. They have begun the work by launching ESL programs in local villages and in a Bible college.

At Bethel, we believe that Missions should start at home. We have many people right here in our own community who need to know the love of God through Jesus Christ. As funds are raised in our missions giving, we become involved in a variety of outreach efforts and support various local ministries. Past outreaches of Bethel into our community have included: Neighbourhood picnics, Family Fun Day, Kids Adventure Week, The Solid Way, Divorce Care, Cancer Support Group, Rescue Junior High Program, support for The Landing, etc.
