Bethlehem Baptist Church is on a mission to believe...belong...and go beyond. Every person is created to know God—to have a relationship with Him by believing and following Jesus Christ. Once you belong to Christ, belonging to a church family plays a vital role in your spiritual growth. Belonging to a family of believers equips each of us to be stronger that we would be alone. While believing and belonging are foundational steps, we can't stop there! As believers, we are called to go beyond the basics as our spiritual roots grow deeper in the rich soil of God's word. We are called to go beyond the walls and comfort of our local church family to impact and reach the world for God's kingdom.
