Bethany Inner City Church Annual Family Camp 2012

In April of 1996, Bethany I.C.C. opened her doors. Bethany I.C.C. was a plant from World Impact. World Impact is an inner city missions organization dedicated to planting churches among the Urban poor in America. Since the original planting, Bethany I.C.C. has become a vibrant, multicultural church that is actively involved in the downtown community.

Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I. “If you do away with the yoke of oppression, with the pointing finger and malicious talk, and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail. Your people will rebuild the ancient ruins and will raise up the age-old foundations; you will be called Repairer of Broken Walls, Restorer of Streets with Dwellings. - Isaiah 58:9-12
