Why Choose a Progressive Church?
Lots of churches teach Jesus' message of love and radical inclusion. But not all churches practice what they preach when it comes to diversity. Many have beliefs and bylaws that disqualify women from leadership positions. And many more deny membership to LGBTQ people.
As a progressive Christian church, we do not discriminate against women or the LGBTQ community in hiring, leadership, or membership.
We teach children, youth, and adults that love means treating all people as we ourselves want to be treated, regardless of gender, preference, identity, or expression. There are no glass ceilings at Bethel. Our Christian faith is 2000 years old, but our thinking is not.
