COMMUNITY OF LOVE (COOL)

COOL is a place for having Worship, Fellowship and Discipleship as a community. We encourage our members to study the Bible and grow in intimacy with God through prayer, praise, and worship. In COOL every member can experience warm fellowship with fellow believers through loving friendship and caring. COOL is also a place to develop and multiply God-given talents for ministry in God's Kingdom; to reach out and bring others to experience true life in Jesus Christ.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Cana

Reminding each Other of the Love and Grace of God

As an international student with no family members around, COOL Cana is what I would call as my second family here – who offers me comfort and where I have the opportunity to meet various types of people and learn from one another. Not only in terms of the social aspect, but COOL is also where I could study and share the Word of God. It is beautiful to have people who support me constantly and continually remind each other of the love and grace of God. Overall, COOL has been an integral part of my journey as a Christian, which has fostered my growth in both my social and spiritual life. I am so grateful for this family.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Bethany

A Christ-Centred Community and a Christ-Loving Family

Having a Christ-centered community means that we have friends that help and support us in our growth of faith. They are our second family away from home. The essence of a community is to build each other up in Christ, according to His Word. Nobody is perfect, so we shouldn’t put our expectations in people, but only keep our eyes towards His abounding grace.

We have to shift our focus from ‘what do I get from this community?’ to ‘what can I give to this community?’. That way, we don’t focus on ourselves, but we can see others and treat others with love. Even though it’s not perfect, and it may not be the same for everyone, one thing that we can expect when we join a Christ-centered community, essentially, is to have a Christ-loving family.

By joining a community, we will love and feel loved, as Jesus has loved us. And most importantly, our faith will be anchored more strongly in Him.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Zion

A Fellowship that Encourage Me to Pursue God’s Heart

Zion feels like a second family to me; I can share happy news with them, but also discuss difficult issues and be open about my vulnerabilities. I used to be a passive Christian whose purpose of going to church was to take my share of the sermon and go home. Through Zion, I was reminded that being a part of the body of Christ means being an ever-growing disciple with a serving heart. They nudged me in that direction by introducing me to KOM, compelled me to serve in church, and guided me in learning deeper about salvation and holiness. I’m grateful that our friendship is beyond skin-deep, and that they can help hold me accountable for my spiritual commitments. Moreover, having fellowship with them always encourages me to pursue God’s heart no matter the season of my spiritual life. Needless to say, I’m very blessed to have met Zion.

Vision

Likewise teach the older woman to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to live their husband and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. (NIV) - Titus 2:3-5

So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.'
