According to a report at Ministry Watch, “Bethel members Tenessa Audette, 45, a first-time candidate, and Jack Munns, 64, who first ran two years ago, will now join Bethel elder Julie Winter on the 5-member council” in Redding, California, home of Bethel Church.

Bethel Church in Redding, California, is pastored and co-pastored by Bill Johnson and Kris Vallotton, respectively, who believe themselves to be prophets and Apostles of God. Bethel is well-known for its debunked “manifestations” of the Holy Spirit, including its infamous spectacle known as “glory clouds.” The “glory cloud” spectacle has been thoroughly debunked and its various other acts of blasphemy, like grave sucking, have been shown to be contra-biblical and heterodox.

As we’ve explained before, Bethel Redding is essentially a cult that revolves around the visions of its two main “Apostles” while minimizing the truth of Scripture. Its livelihood depends on the fantastic tales relayed by its pastors as “revelations” from God coupled with the “experience” of worship through its deep emotionally-stimulating music.

Bethel Church’s central message is essentially to “make love to Jesus” by creating what they deem a “heaven on earth” experience in their worship services. But they don’t limit their aberrant theology to just inside the walls of their church. According to Bethel’s website, they believe that “this is the hour for the Church to arise and shine” and “now is the time—time to arise and build for the purposes of our God as people united who are equipped and empowered to impact communities, cities, and nations for Him, bringing His manifest presence into the darkest corners of the earth.”

Bethel is a New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) church that promotes nefarious theologies such as  Word of Faith, Dominionism, Latter Rain, and Joel’s Army. Part of Bethel’s teaching is dominion theology, or the seven-mountain mandate, that teaches that it is the job of the church to take over the seven cultural “mountains” including religion, family, education, government, media, entertainment, and business. Taking over local governments and expanding into larger governments is the ultimate goal of these Dominionist churches.
