|Mission||To build a church with a strong atmosphere of prayer and worship, and disciple every member to release them into ministry to fulfill the Great Commission|
In the period of 1993 - 1997, Pastor DR. Niko Njotorahardjo, Senior Pastor of Gereja Bethel Indonesia (GBI) Jln. Gatot Subroto, Jakarta - Indonesia, was led to plant new churches to maximize the church growth. The vision is to plant new churches and build houses of prayer for all nations (Isaiah 54:2-3 and 56:7). It was about the time when GBI also started to send out missionaries to cities and nations outside Indonesia.
Bethel Church California was founded in April 2005 by Pastors Billy & Sonny Lesmana
in San Francisco as a part of the mission and outreach of Gereja Bethel Indonesia.
Prior to starting Bethel Church California, Billy & Sonny Lesmana have been ministering
in music department, young professionals and couples ministries for over a decade since 1991 in Jakarta. They entered full-time ministry and were both ordained as ministers in 1997 before being sent out as missionaries in 1998 to plant and edify churches in New Zealand, Canada and also in major cities in the United States like Philadelphia, Seattle, and San Francisco.
Bethel Church California is a local church affiliated with and operate under the spiritual coverings of Pastor DR. Niko Njotorahardjo (Senior Pastor of GBI Jln. Gatot Subroto – Jakarta) and Pastor Djohan Handojo (Senior Pastor of Bethany Church Singapore).
Bethel Church California, through its pastors and leadership team, has a strong spirit of prophetic prayer and worship to penetrate through society by imparting Christ’s love.
Our mission is to build a church with a strong atmosphere of prayer and worship, and disciple every member to release them into ministry to fulfill the Great Commission.
We currently hold a morning Sunday service in Sunnyvale and another evening service
