Characteristics of Bethel Temple Churches

Beth-el is a Hebrew phrase that means "house of God", which makes it a natural word for many churches to include in their names and spiritual identities. Although Bethel Temple churches run the gamut, the majority are independent congregations that cater to conservative Protestant believers in their community.

By and large, Bethel Temple church planters are a hearty lot that possess strong entrepreneurial instincts. Innovation, dedication and a positive personality are just a few of the qualities you will need to bring to the table if you hope to grow your Bethel Temple church plant into a thriving religious community.

Bethel Temple Church Plants: A Family Affair

Like it or not, a Bethel Temple church plant will affect your entire family. During the startup phase (and beyond), your leadership role will inevitably eat into your free time and require the active participation of your spouse and children. Even more, the stress of planting a new church has the potential to damage your family relationships, causing seemingly small divisions to mushroom into full-blown conflicts.

Startup small business owners are aware of the impact their business activities have on their families. As a result, it's not uncommon for business entrepreneurs to implement deliberate strategies to incorporate their families in their startup efforts -- many of which can be useful in your efforts to launch a successful Bethel Temple church.
