Bethany Independent-Presbyterian Church (IPC) is an independent church located between the Paya Lebar and Serangoon areas of central Singapore. It is the mother church of the IPC Family, which spans Singapore, India, Australia and Myanmar. The church’s teachings and practices are based on a belief in the inerrancy of the Bible and its final authority in faith and life. More details of the church's beliefs can be found in its statement of faith.[1]

The church maintains a Bible study[2] resource on its website as well as audio[3] and video[4] recordings of weekly messages.
