We are a community church, and consequently our local mission is to the Bethlehem area.
We aim to serve this community in the numerous ways that are an extension of the talents and abilities that God has given to those who choose to be a part of our fellowship.
Our mission is not just local. We also aim to serve and encourage those who are working for the kingdom of God in our city, in our nation, and overseas as we can, with the resources God has given us.
We believe in
- The sovereignty of the triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and the saving grace He has extended to all people through the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
- The Family as instituted by God and foundational to His plan for human existence.
- Participation of the congregation in every area of the church’s life. People worshipping, relating, growing, serving and reaching out as the body of Christ.
- Caring for others in a holistic way, building mutually loving and supportive relationships with others.
- Mission Initiative that is both local and global.
- Preaching the Word of God and upholding its authority, and an understanding of its position as the guideline upon which our lives should be modelled.
- The spiritual nurture of children and young people — parents and church working together to help young lives find and follow Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.
- The small group as a context for worship, building community, spiritual and personal growth, and service.
We encourage fellow Christians who attend Bethlehem Community Church to become Members — to make a commitment to Membership.
