You are invited to COME to Bethlehem - “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Join us! God meets us where we are. Join us! For refreshment, the unloading of burdens through the Word and Sacrament.
As we continue to do this, we are then prepared to GO and make disciples of all nations. It is as simple as that. Through weekly worship, and the study of the Word, God reveals Himself to us as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As we receive the Sacraments, and are filled with the Holy Spirit, we cannot help but to GO and tell others what He has done. We are enabled to complete this cycle by proclaiming His name in our context here and in the world through words, service to our neighbors and to the community as a whole. Reaching to the ends of the earth with His message of love, grace and forgiveness.
As you explore our website feel at home, like a day at the beach. It will become evident that we are passionate about using everything God has given us to bless the lives of all we serve, here at Jacksonville Beach, or the world beyond. As we COME to gather every week at this special place we call “Bethlehem at the Beach,” and then as we GO into our bigger world serving as the Body of Christ.
