RAISE UP, REACH OUT, AND IMPACT
The journey of Bethany Church (Singapore) began from a BIG VISION from a man of God who was faithful to his calling and desired to obey and please God. God has put a burning desire to this man, Ps. Niko Njotorahardjo, to start a house of prayer for Singapore and its people.
2 Peter 3:9 – "The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." With this in his mind, in the year of 1993, Ps. Niko began his first step faith in planting a church which is now known as Bethany Church (Singapore) or BCS in short.
Started with a small congregation of 20 people, Ps. Niko, his wife and a worship leader travelled back and forth Singapore – Jakarta every month with great perseverance to lead the service in one of the congregation's house. At first, services were used to be held monthly in various hotels such as The Dynasty Hotel and Crown Prince Hotel (now known as the Park Royal Hotel).
In April 2001, Bethany Church (Singapore) was officially inaugurated under the leadership and ministry of Ps. Djohan HandojoToday, around 2,500 people come to attend various services in BCS every week. Other than 3 Indonesian main services that are held every Sunday at Grand Hyatt Hotel, BCS also has various homogeneous group services which are held either on weekday or weekend to cater the needs of God's people.

Let the prophetic voice of God is spoken through the life of the young people which is different from those who are from the world.
God alone is worthy of our devotion, praise and worship. He is God, our Creator, and we are commanded to praise and worship Him. Psalm 96:9 says, "Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth." Psalm 29:2 says, "Give unto the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
God tells us how to praise and worship him in His Word. John 4:23 says, "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks." In order to worship God in truth, we need to know that Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." So, before you can worship in the way that God desires, you have to develop a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus, His Son.
The best way that we can praise and worship God is with our every thought and action. Romans 12:1-2 states, "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God -- this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is -- his good, pleasing and perfect will."
Many people think that praise and worship is only singing songs at church, but it is so much more! It is also a condition of your heart -- a willingness to exalt God and yield to his will. Worship is an expression of love and awe to the God who gives us more than we deserve. Whether you express your worship by singing, playing music, dancing or in some other way, remember that you are called to worship God with your every action, every day of your life.
