For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him, as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
We value our relationships in our life together. We want to find authentic and practical ways to love each other in order to build friendships and strengthen our faith. God is greatly glorified when love for one another runs high.
We also value Bethlehem's spiritual atmosphere. Because we believe that right thinking fosters right living, we want to emphasize individual and corporate Bible study and prayer. We desire teachable hearts that are captivated by the things of God.
The World Outside
In order to be mindful of the larger Christian movement and the world outside Bethlehem, we have developed initiatives to pursue things like global missions, racial harmony, and global compassion.
Our corporate worship gatherings are a vital way we magnify the supremacy of Christ, and so we want both our hearts and our minds to be engaged.
