Bethesda House (Formally known as Jesus Saves International Ministries) is a non-denominational church, located on the town of Oskaloosa, Iowa.
The Lead Pastor of Bethesda House, Pastor Jeremy Empie, is an ordained Pastor, who has a unique life testimony - enduring cerebral palsy his entire life, which has led him and his wife Katie, to build a unique and compassionate ministry that reaches out to adults, teenagers, and children with the love of Jesus to those who are lost and hurting. Pastor Jeremy has a strong desire and passion to preach the Gospel and has an energetic, enthusiastic and humorous approach in his messages. Pastor Jeremy and his wife Katie chose the scriptures:
Matthew 28:18-20- Jesus came and told his disciples, "I have been given all authority in Heaven and on Earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all of the commands I have given you, and be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Along with their ministry's logo, the scriptures directly relate with the ministry's mission, which is similar to The Great Commission, (in God's Word), which is about bringing those in need of hope to a new life through faith in the crucified and resurrected Christ, (that is offered to all of the people of this world), and that hope and recovery are available through God's power by spreading the Gospel, until Jesus returns, at the end of age.
Pastor Jeremy and his wife Katie and the Ministry Team, welcome you with compassionate hearts to Bethesda House. Whatever your need may be, we want you to know that you are loved by God and He can and will positively change your life, if you let Him in! If you need anything, please feel free to contact someone on our team. This ministry would not be possible without all of you! May God Bless You!!
