Strengthened church life and core ministries
on all three campuses allows us to undertake greater gospel spreading.
Completion of the trio of I-35 campus launch sites that we envisioned in 2006
positions us better for spreading the gospel and planting churches.
We know that Bethlehem’s DNA flourishes when the people have a 24/7 facility for Upreach, Inreach, and Outreach.
The life with which we hope to fill these cities.
DNA makes us who we are. Biologically speaking, DNA stands for deoxyribonucleic acid. It is a double-stranded molecule in the shape of a double helix or a twisted ladder. DNA matters because it holds the code for every cell in the body. DNA is a record of instructions encoded in each cell that tells it what it is supposed to be and do.
We want Bethlehem’s DNA–our Biblical Essentials and Bethlehem Priorities–to serve as a controlling code that defines all we are and all we do as a spiritual body. We do not have authority to define our church, because it belongs to Christ. He is the head of the church. Documenting who we are as a church is an exercise in asking, seeking, and knocking, and we believe we have heard from Christ.
“I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5
