MINISTRIES

Frequently we think of the work of the church occurring only on Sunday morning. However, the work goes on continually because the needs of the people demand it. For this reason, our ministries are diverse and focused.

The underlying purpose of each ministry here at Bethlehem Baptist Church is discipleship, evangelism, fellowship, ministry and worship. By focusing on these purposes we can be relatively certain that everything we do moves us in the direction in which God intends for us to move.

We invite you to browse this section and learn of all the good work presently taking place in God's vineyard. If you have any questions or comments about them feel free to contact us.
