“…My house shall be called a house of prayer…”

Mark 11:17 NIV

The vision of this church is to be a praying church, to reach out and challenge others to follow Jesus completely. Acts 2 tells us that the early church devoted themselves to prayer. At Bentleyville UMC, we want to be like the early church and be devoted to prayer.

God invites us to communicate with Him through the gift of prayer. Prayer is a conversation with God and a vehicle to know Him and hear His voice. We know He is leading our church to discover a deeper relationship with Him. We want to understand the importance and the power of prayer, and develop a deeper faith in Him as we see His Kingdom come.
