Our Vision

First Baptist Church of Bethlehem has a legacy of ministry from its Baptist roots which are expressed theologically and practically in ministry. These roots can be seen in our present vision for ministry as we have a commitment to the Bible as God’s Word. We have no creed other than the Word of God and our desire is to see its teachings lived out individually and corporately as a Christian community of faith. This Word implanted in us leads to discipleship as we endeavor to follow Jesus as Lord and Savior.
We prayerfully seek to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ and to call others to lives of growing discipleship. The outflow of this growth leads us to lives of service and mission locally, regionally and around the world. All that we do through our various ministries of worship, fellowship/hospitality, teaching and care are done through the lens of this ministry vision – Reaching – Connecting – Growing – Serving.
