COMMUNITY OF LOVE (COOL)

COOL is a place for having Worship, Fellowship and Discipleship as a community. We encourage our members to study the Bible and grow in intimacy with God through prayer, praise, and worship. In COOL every member can experience warm fellowship with fellow believers through loving friendship and caring. COOL is also a place to develop and multiply God-given talents for ministry in God's Kingdom; to reach out and bring others to experience true life in Jesus Christ.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Zion

A Fellowship that Encourage Me to Pursue God’s Heart

Zion feels like a second family to me; I can share happy news with them, but also discuss difficult issues and be open about my vulnerabilities. I used to be a passive Christian whose purpose of going to church was to take my share of the sermon and go home. Through Zion, I was reminded that being a part of the body of Christ means being an ever-growing disciple with a serving heart. They nudged me in that direction by introducing me to KOM, compelled me to serve in church, and guided me in learning deeper about salvation and holiness. I’m grateful that our friendship is beyond skin-deep, and that they can help hold me accountable for my spiritual commitments. Moreover, having fellowship with them always encourages me to pursue God’s heart no matter the season of my spiritual life. Needless to say, I’m very blessed to have met Zion.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Eden

Finding a New Home in a New Country

One thing that I prayed for before I came to Melbourne in 2016 was to find a community where I can make new friends and grow spiritually. I praised God that I found COOL Eden where I met the people who I can consider as my second family now ? In COOL, we not only come for weekly gatherings but also to share our life with the people there too.

The most memorable thing within 4 years in Eden was seeing how much the members care for each other. After I graduated, I was having a hard time finding a job that eventually made me feel down and discouraged for some time. During COOL meetings I often shared my struggles about the job search and how it had affected my relationship with God. I was glad that I was surrounded by people who cared for me; they tirelessly listened to all my ups and downs, reminded me about God’s truth, and prayed for me as well. I truly hope that everyone can find COOL as a safe space where they can be themselves where they can support and encourage one another.

BIC (Bethany International Church) Cool - Ephraim

From Strangers to Family

The first time I came to Melbourne, I joined COOL Ephraim because I was invited by my friends who had already joined the group. At first, I was mostly quiet because I didn’t really know anyone. But, it turns out all the friends in Ephraim are very fun.
I feel that being in an environment with friends who are believers has made my faith in Christ Jesus grow. Joining COOL is not like a typical Sunday Service, because it is held in a more relaxing environment, so I can understand the material that is shared more easily.
My COOL friends are not just friends who go to the service together, but we can share with one another, we can chit chat, and hang out.
As a student who didn’t really know about university life and living in Melbourne, all my friends here have been very helpful and encouraging. Overall, my experience in COOL Ephraim is very memorable, because we are not strangers to one another, but we have become like families and siblings in Christ Jesus.

Vision

Likewise teach the older woman to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to live their husband and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. (NIV) - Titus 2:3-5

So they will be called the trees of righteousness [strong and magnificent, distinguished for integrity, justice, and right standing with God], The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.'
