Bethel New Life’s mission is to realize God’s vision of a restored society by empowering individuals,
strengthening families, and building west side neighborhoods
through community-driven, solution-oriented, and value-centered approaches.
“If you put an end to oppression, to every gesture of contempt, and to every evil word; if you give food to the hungry and satisfy those who are in need, then the darkness around you will turn to the brightness of noon. And I will always guide you and satisfy you with good things. I will keep you strong and well. You will be like a garden that has plenty of water, like a spring of water that never goes dry. Your people will rebuild what has long been in ruins, building again on the old foundations. You will be known as the people who rebuilt the walls, who restored the ruined houses.” Isaiah 58:9-12
Creativity in finding solutions to community challenges. Making it happen by thinking out side of the box. We will act out our faith through our work.
This core value comes first for a reason. Without integrity, we will not have the impact that we desire. We take this very seriously. We will extend grace when it comes to mistakes and errors, giving people a chance to grow and improve in their jobs. We are not as tolerant of violations in this area. We need to know we can trust our coworkers without question.
We are constantly redefining our goals, expectations, boundaries, and potential. Our team’s talents and performance vary from person to person. That is normal. We simply believe that regardless of your talent or performance today, you should want to be better tomorrow. We want teammates that are constantly striving to learn and grow, improving every day!
We strive to create an atmosphere that inspires and enables people to reach their full potential. As an organization, we want to meet our employees where they are as they strive for excellence. Our goal is to provide the resources and inspiration required to “move” them forward on their path. Sometimes this means they advance within our organization and sometimes it means they move on to other opportunities. Either way, we want to help!
We provide the opportunity for all to know God and make Him known. No one who works in our organization is required to believe what we believe. However, we make it clear early on that our Creator is the owner of our organization. Therefore, all that we do centers around Him. This includes many efforts to sow seeds of faith all around through various efforts. We will not force anyone to believe, but they will certainly have opportunities to hear.
We use our talents and treasures to make a difference in those who need it most. We believe we are part of the community in which we work and therefore have the responsibility to give back to that community. Whether through community service, programming or providing safe spaces for programs, we are going to take the time and energy to give to those who need it.
