Church and Community Overview

Bethany Baptist Church is more than just a weekly gathering place.  Located in Moline, Illinois since 1876 and our current facility since 1956, we are a multi-generational community of believers, dedicated to making a Christ-honoring impact both within and outside the church.  Our mission is to “make disciples who grow from saved to servant to disciple-maker by loving God, growing together and serving the world.”  This mission guides our search for a new senior pastor.

Bethany Baptist Church is welcoming and meets individuals where they are, without judgment. Our congregation is like family, living life outside the sanctuary and caring for others.  We have a strong youth and college growth engine, with programs designed to engage and inspire young people in their faith. Our teaching is based on scripture, with many able teachers who bring the Word of God to life in a relevant and meaningful way. We strongly support our statement of faith and establish accountability by sharpening each other in love and service.  Our staff, volunteers, and talented musicians work to ensure that our church is engaging for all.  Our debt-free facilities support growth in a high traffic location, with amenities such as a gymnasium that allow us to offer a wide range of programs and activities to our members and the wider community.  One example is sharing the facilities with a Myanmar church plant which has become a Converge affiliated church.

With an average worship service of 80 in attendance, we aspire to be a growing, spiritually thriving congregation. We desire to celebrate God’s work in our lives and church, while striving to improve our global missions and local outreach. As a prayer leader in the community, we intend to improve the focus on interchurch growth. We hope to be an example of faith and fellowship, inspiring others to join our mission.
