Frequently Asked Questions

What do you believe?

Visit our beliefs page for a detailed list of Bellevue’s beliefs.

What do I wear?

You are welcome at Bellevue Arlington just as you are. We have members in shirt and tie, members in jeans and t-shirt, and everywhere in between. We meet to worship the Lord and fellowship with other believers. We believe that it’s the attitude of the heart that matters to God, rather than your physical appearance.

What will my children do during your worship service?

Children are important to Bellevue Arlington! While mom and dad attend the worship service, the kids will be in special programs designed just for them with caring teachers who want to show them Jesus’ love. A nursery is available for preschoolers during the service. Children in kindergarten through fifth grade will enjoy their own Life Groups. Children in 6th grade and up will fellowship together in the student area before and after the Worship Service but will attend the Worship Service with their parents.

Who will be preaching?

Bellevue Arlington is a video venue showing a LIVE stream sermon by Dr. Gaines. On occasion, Phil Newberry or others will preach a sermon in person.

How long is the service?

Our services will go from 9:20 a.m. until no later than 11:00 a.m., but are approximately one hour and 15 minutes.

Where do I park and enter?

Enter into the guest entrance near that parking area. Greeters will point you toward the café and worship center.

What style of music do you sing?

The Worship Service is led by our worship band and includes worship songs and hymns all with a contemporary sound.

What version of the Bible do you use?

Our Pastor preaches from the New American Standard Bible ®. We accept all versions of the Bible that hold true to God’s Word.

How do I get involved in a Life Group?

Through Bellevue Arlington’s life group ministry, you can get involved in a Life Group; a small group of believers where you’ll enjoy fellowship, Bible study discussion, and relationships that will last an eternity. Life groups for adults meet in homes throughout the Arlington area on Sundays at noon and at night during the week.
