WELCOME!

Bethany is a church family following Jesus together.

We sing His praises. We pray in His name. We teach His Word. We love His people. We share His message. All this and more we do together because THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM.

Whether you’ve been following Jesus for years or are just getting started, we hope today you experience the good news of Jesus and discover how to take the next step on the path of following Him.

SONG LYRICS

Our God Saves

In the Name of the Father,
In the Name of the Son,
In the Name of the Spirit,
Lord we come;
We’re gather’d together
To lift up Your Name,
To call on our Savior,
To fall on Your grace.

In the Name of the Father,
In the Name of the Son,
In the Name of the Spirit,
Lord we come;
We’re gather’d together
To lift up Your Name,
To call on our Savior,
To fall on Your grace.

Hear the joyful sound
Of our offering
As Your saints bow down,
As Your people sing;
We will rise with You,
Lifted on Your wings,
And the world will see that

Our God saves our God saves
There is hope in Your name

In the Name of the Father,
In the Name of the Son,
In the Name of the Spirit,
Lord we come;
We’re gather’d together
To lift up Your Name,
To call on our Savior,
To fall on Your grace.

Hear the joyful sound
Of our offering
As Your saints bow down,
As Your people sing;
We will rise with You,
Lifted on Your wings,
And the world will see that

Our God saves our God saves
There is hope in Your name
Mourning turns to songs of praise
Our God saves our God saves

Hear the joyful sound
Of our offering
As Your saints bow down,
As Your people sing;
We will rise with You,
Lifted on Your wings,
And the world will see that
Yes the world will see that

Our God saves our God saves
There is hope in Your name
Mourning turns to songs of praise
Our God saves our God saves

Our God saves our God saves
Our God saves our God saves

Yet Not I But Through Christ In Me

What gift of grace is Jesus my redeemer
There is no more for heaven now to give
He is my joy, my righteousness, and freedom
My steadfast love, my deep and boundless peace

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
For my life is wholly bound to His
Oh how strange and divine, I can sing: all is mine
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

The night is dark but I am not forsaken
For by my side, the Saviour He will stay
I labour on in weakness and rejoicing
For in my need, His power is displayed

To this I hold, my Shepherd will defend me
Through the deepest valley He will lead
Oh the night has been won, and I shall overcome
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

No fate I dread, I know I am forgiven
The future sure, the price it has been paid
For Jesus bled and suffered for my pardon
And He was raised to overthrow the grave

To this I hold, my sin has been defeated
Jesus now and ever is my plea
Oh the chains are released, I can sing: I am free
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

With every breath I long to follow Jesus
For He has said that He will bring me home
And day by day I know He will renew me
Until I stand with joy before the throne

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

To this I hold, my hope is only Jesus
All the glory evermore to Him
When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

When the race is complete, still my lips shall repeat
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
Yet not I, but through Christ in me
Yet not I, but through Christ in me

Your Name

As morning dawns and evening fades
You inspire songs of praise
That rise from earth to touch Your heart
And glorify Your Name

Your Name is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name is a shelter like no other
Your Name let the nations sing it louder
‘Cause nothing has the power to save but Your Name

Jesus in Your Name we pray
Come and fill our hearts today
Lord give us strength to live for You
And glorify Your Name

Your Name is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name is a shelter like no other
Your Name let the nations sing it louder
‘Cause nothing has the power to save but Your Name

Your Name is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name is a shelter like no other
Your Name let the nations sing it louder
‘Cause nothing has the power to save

Your Name is a strong and mighty tower
Your Name is a shelter like no other
Your Name let the nations sing it louder
‘Cause nothing has the power to save but Your Name

I Will Sing Of My Redeemer

I will sing of my Redeemer
And His wondrous love to me
On the cruel cross He suffered
From the curse to set me free

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free

I will tell the wondrous story
How my lost estate to save
In His boundless love and mercy
He the ransom freely gave

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free

I will praise my dear Redeemer
His triumphant power I’ll tell
How the victory He giveth
Over sin and death and hell

Sing O sing of my Redeemer
With His blood He purchased me
On the cross He sealed my pardon
Paid the debt and made me free
