"Peace to you!" from
Pastor Jon Cox

Thank you for visiting the Bethel website! 

Bethel is a family of believers in the one true God.  He has done all that the world needs to be saved from sin.

Jesus Christ, is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Through faith in his life, death, and resurrection, all people may have forgiveness of sins and life in heaven.

No matter what troubles may confront us in this life, God promises to provide for all life, to care for his believers, and to work through all circumstances to bring about good for those who love him.

I have been a pastor since 1992, and have had the privilege to serve many people in various situations. I want to serve you too.

If you would like any spiritual or pastoral care from me, questions answered, prayers prayed, or just a listening ear, please call me on my cell phone or send an email message to me.

Hello to everyone arriving at this "Faith Related Q&A" section! 
Just want you all to know that this section is fed by questions that are submitted through the website
of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, not by questions submitted to me. 
They are answered by a man who is on the faculty of our synod's seminary.  He is well-equiped
to answer questions on the basis of what God's Word says and how our church teaches.

If you have questions about any answer that you read here, please contact me and I will do my
best to explain things for you or help you contact the person who wrote the answer in the first place.
Thank you, again, for visiting our Bethel website. 
Peace to you, Pastor Jon Cox

Faith Related Q and A

One of my closest friends told me that Satan can be redeemed and still have some good inside him even though he's pure evil. I had some conflicts because of her explanation and I wanted to be sure: is this true?
There is no possibility of redemption for Satan and all the evil angels. Jude 6 explains: “And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day.” Revelation 20:10 describes that judgment: “And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Jesus also spoke of that judgment in Matthew 25:41.
If a Christian is cremated and their ashes are, say, sprinkled all over the place (e.g. little in WI, MI, SD, MN) etc...where will our body come out when we hear Jesus? Should a Christian's ashes not be sprinkled around, but rather kept together in one burial place?
The Bible describes the resurrection—and transformation of the bodies of all Christians—as being instantaneous (1 Corinthians 15:51-52). The God who made all things from nothing (Genesis 1) will raise the bodies of all who have died and reunite bodies and souls (John 5:28-29). Nothing is impossible for our all-powerful God (Jeremiah 32:27). Followers of the Lord enjoy Christian freedom to choose between cremation or traditional burial. The Bible does not address the subject of dividing the cremains.
Forward in Christ

My Christian life: Serving in retirement as a vacancy pastor
Thomas Hilliard and his wifeA retired pastor and his wife share the blessings of serving at a vacancy. Over the past nine years, Thomas Hilliard has worked at 24 different places in almost 20 states. His occupation? He’s not in the military, as you might suspect. He’s also not a salesperson with a large territory to cover. Thomas Hilliard […]
