When you arrive for a worship service, you’ll find friendly people who aim to make your first visit an encouraging one. Our parking ambassadors will direct you to facilitate traffic flow, then our greeters will guide you and answer any questions that you may have.
What to wear? The Lord focuses on the heart more than on the outward appearance, and so do we. You'll find a wide variety in dress among our congregations—from casual jeans, to more formal saris. We simply aim to dress so as not to draw lots of attention to ourselves, but keep the focus on Jesus Christ alone.
We seek to lead people further into a life-altering relationship with the living God—and our worship services reflect that. The authority of God's Word is preached without apology and His Son is exalted with gratitude and adoration.
As you enter the worship center, our ushers will welcome you, and if helpful, are glad to direct you to your seat.
We encourage early arrival as services always begin on time, and last approximately 2 hours. Our times of worship begin with music (mostly original and contemporary songs, with occasional hymns and new arrangements) and prayer, then we open God's Word together and ready our hearts to hear what God has to say to us.
Senior Pastor David Prakasam preaches live at 3 varying services each Sunday. Weekend services include live worship and the weekend message delivered through simulcast.
When Pastor David is not preaching, our pulpit is filled by our Campus Pastors or occasionally guest preachers. Sermons are captured on audio and video and available at our bookstore.
Don't miss the Guest Reception that immediately follows each service. There you’ll meet our staff and leaders who are glad to answer any questions you may have and provide you with resources.
Fifty people from across Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, gathered to form a new church. They had a vision for proclaiming the authority of the Word of God to all who would hear, for lifting high the name of Jesus through worship, for believing firmly in the power of prayer, and for sharing the good news of Jesus with boldness. Indian Pentecostal Assemblies was born in the year 1976, with Job Gnanaprakasam serving as Senior Pastor.
The mission of our ministry is to glorify God by making disciples—to fulfill the Great Commission in the spirit of the great commandment (Matthew 28:19-20; Matthew 22:37).
Our obedience to this mission is the foundation of every Bethel City ministry. From worship services to Children's Ministry to Student and Adult Ministries, our chief aim is to make authentic disciples of Christ who follow His ways in their Worship, their Walk, and their Work.
View our doctrine and ministry values.
Disciple-making is to be worked out mutually in ministry to one another. We believe it's not about one or a small number of pastors bearing the total responsibility to care for the entire congregation (Ephesians 4:11-12). Rather it's about all disciples using their God-given spiritual gifts to provide mutual ministry, in the context of a vibrant and strong local church.
Our primary means to develop these gifts, and to build up and serve one another is through our Small Group Ministry.
Everyone who calls Bethel City their church home is strongly encouraged to take part in a small group where the Scriptures are opened, lives are shared and prayer is upheld. Small group ministry even takes place within our Student and Children's Ministries. Nearly every type and demographic is available, and new groups are continually forming.
