I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. – Lord Jesus Christ
wo decades ago, if you had told us that the Bethel AG International Worship Centre would have thousands of regular members attending the Sunday services, we would have found that rather funny. Our faith was small. But He has blessed and prospered and multiplied and grown the Church over the years.
And still the blessings flow, they still come – as individuals, as couples, as families and as groups. On 4th August 2010, we inaugurated the mezzanine floor of our current structure. The mezzanine floor was part of an intermediate restructuring plan to accommodate the growing number of attendees. It didn’t take much time for even the mezzanine floor to be filled to capacity in each of the 4 services. Hence the church felt the need to extend the hall so that it can accommodate more people. As a result, in January 2016 an overflow section was built right outside the main hall which can accommodate few hundreds more. We are just amazed that it didn’t take even few months for the overflow section to overflow beyond it’s capacity.
Two decades ago, we would have smiled. We might have even laughed the way Sarah did. Today, we know better. We know Him better. No eye has seen, no ear has heard and no mind has conceived what He has in store for this Church. All glory to God.
We are excited about what God is doing in and through our church! We will very soon engage in an extensive multi-crore building program which will expand our facilities in Hebbal. The multi-level church building is expected to be the largest building in its category in Bangalore. The structure which resembles an open Bible, will be a national architectural marvel.
It will have two levels of theatre-like auditoriums, each with a seating capacity of 15,000 individuals. Technology will be extensively used in the sanctuaries for providing the best audio visual facilities to service attendees.
Parking will not be an issue for the thousands who attend services, as the structure will facilitate multiple levels of parking. Cars and other four wheel vehicles will have two levels of parking and one full level will be allocated for parking two wheel vehicles.
The building will also have a level with multiple halls, wherein smaller gatherings can be accommodated. The church offices will occupy another level in the structure
The state of the art structure will also have a helipad on the roof. The entire structure will be built using the best materials and safety features that is required in a multilevel building.
