"Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." John 17:3. This is our prayer. That all would come to know the glorious promise of eternal life, the Lord, His Son and the Holy Spirit. But, how is this accomplished? We believe that God works through His Word and the Sacraments. This is why it is critical to worship regularly and be plugged-in; to be a part of a Bible Study or one of our Life Groups.
Once you know, then it is time to grow. Whether you are new to faith, our have been here since infancy, we know that faith, like life, is a journey and that spiritual maturity is something worth dedicating your life to. This is accomplished through the Holy Spirit as He guides and leads us, empowers and equips us. Stay at Bethlehem, there is room in the inn...
Some call them Care Groups, Small Groups, or Christ Care Groups. We call them Small Groups. But what is really important is not what you call them, but that you join one! We were designed to live in community, and to share our joys, sorrows, questions, and experiences with others. Life Groups are the place to learn, share, engage, connect and GROW!
We realize that it is not a "one size fits all," approach that works best when it comes to Bible Study. Some like a big group, some small. Some people enjoy morning studies, where others can only make it in the evening.
Whether two or ninety-two, knowing and growing is for everyone at Bethlehem. From the cradle to the grave, baptism to resurrection, this is a ministry for you!
"Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord
and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen."
2 Peter 3:18
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us.
We are always available for questions, concerns and prayer requests.
