Bethleham BIBLE CHURCH | Who we are

“Behold, I send My messenger before Your face, Who will prepare Your way before You. The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; Make His paths straight…” Mark 1:2-3 (KJV)

Our goal at Bethlehem is not to be imitators of what others are doing, but innovators of progressive ministry that meets the needs of people. As such, we recognize the need to intentionally involve ourselves in touching the lives of people. Just as our Lord was not content to simply preach a gospel of good news, but instead committed Himself to impacting His community with the evidence of God’s goodness, we have committed ourselves to the same!

Our Mission

The Mission of the Bethlehem Baptist Church is to minister the uncompromised Gospel of Jesus Christ to all of humanity and teach the people of God how to live daily in God’s will.

Our Music Ministry

We have a vast variety of music in our church. Want to join our learn more? Contact us today or come by Sunday for service to see the liveliest of the church!

Our History

On June 25, 1897, Reverend Louis and Mrs. Irene Colson deeded the land needed to erect a sanctuary for the Baptist portion of the non-denominational church. Mr. Mott and Mrs. Josie Washington loaned Bethlehem the money to purchase the first pews.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35 King James Version (KJV)

Fellowship is the God-given purpose of the church. Help where you can make not just yourself, but the church as a whole, to be the most fruitful. If you do not know your spiritual gift, pitch in where you have a natural ability. As you work with others, your gifts will surface and you’ll find places you might function in our church according to your gifts and abilities. Join us on Social Media!

The Importance of Tithing

Throughout Scripture, we are encouraged to give the first part of our resources to God as an expression of honor and gratitude. “Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine” (Proverbs 3:9–10).
