Bethel Colony of Mercy

Looking for a free (except for a minimal entry fee) drug and alcohol rehab with a faith-based approach using the Bible and Christian principles in counseling? Then, Bethel Colony of Mercy, located in Lenoir, North Carolina, is the place for you. With only an entry fee of $250.00, Bethel Colony is a 65-day residential program that teaches victory over sin through Jesus Christ and the Bible. This is done through classroom teaching, audio tapes, counseling both at the Colony and online, homework, worship services and work projects. Our program is designed to provide a vital context in which men are encouraged to know Christ personally and to understand the practical outworking of the Word of God in meeting every need. Daily teaching, counseling, devotionals, guided personal Bible study and prayer provide the means by which these objectives are accomplished. This, combined with a disciplined schedule, healthful climate, nutritious food and relaxing recreation, soon restores a measure of physical health and a more positive mental outlook. The residents also participate in routine maintenance of the facilities, general upkeep of the grounds and community projects. Bethel Colony's program is primarily designed to produce in each man a more effective lifestyle in which he allows Jesus Christ to take control. Please read About Bethel Colony under Who We Are for more information.

1 Peter 2:24 states that we might live righteous, but we also must be submissive in that same right. You have the opportunity to be free and the choice not to be.

Jesus wants to set you free today. Will you let him so you can walk in the righteousness that he provides. Scripture teaches that if we walk in light we have fellowship, but search your heart in other areas that he wants to have fellowship with you today. Do you have darkness in your heart? We have to allow him to have fullness of our lives. We have the ability within our choices. Submit your choices to Him today.
