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 - Horeb

Imitate him as he imitates Christ

I first came to BIC church as a stranger and ended up joining COOL Horeb. During my time here, I have been spiritually growing because I have been nurtured by the group leader who is like a spiritual father to me. We have grown tight friendship amongst ourselves that resembles family-like closeness.

I can also see the real application of Jesus Christ’s love, not through the show of talents or skills, but through caring of one another. This is one of the reasons I regularly attend COOL Horeb until today. I decided to commit to this community, grow and learn how to bless others and imitate to care for others as to how I have been cared for.

To bear the image of Christ does not mean to preach from a pulpit, but through loving and caring to one another in the community.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Ephraim

From Strangers to Family

The first time I came to Melbourne, I joined COOL Ephraim because I was invited by my friends who had already joined the group. At first, I was mostly quiet because I didn’t really know anyone. But, it turns out all the friends in Ephraim are very fun.
I feel that being in an environment with friends who are believers has made my faith in Christ Jesus grow. Joining COOL is not like a typical Sunday Service, because it is held in a more relaxing environment, so I can understand the material that is shared more easily.
My COOL friends are not just friends who go to the service together, but we can share with one another, we can chit chat, and hang out.
As a student who didn’t really know about university life and living in Melbourne, all my friends here have been very helpful and encouraging. Overall, my experience in COOL Ephraim is very memorable, because we are not strangers to one another, but we have become like families and siblings in Christ Jesus.

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.'
