About Our Church
Jesus says, "Be compassionate, as your Heavenly Father is compassionate." Luke 6:36
At Bethany Union Church of Chicago, we
intentionally Cultivate Compassion.
Cultivating Compassion is our Mission
driven by the Vision we have received from Christ
in His words to us to be like our Heavenly Father: compassionate!
We measure our energy, time, financial and material resources against Cultivating Compassion.
We ask, "How is what we are doing cultivating compassion in this world?"
We seek to Cultivate Compassion in our learning and development
at every faith stage, our services, our worship, and all that we support
at Bethany Union Church of Chicago
must be in-line, tuned-in, relevant and spot-on for
This is the Community Church of Christ Jesus we call home.
On May 5, 1872, necessity made "denominations" a secondary consideration to the Worship of God and the care of His people.
