Why Your help is needed!
It is a sobering experience to witness churches that were once vibrant worshiping communities declining in worship attendance, and some are forced to close their doors. We watch as the United States becomes the third largest mission field in the world.  For many churches this is the sad reality they face, but at Bethlehem we are experiencing a different trend. In the midst of a culture of declining churches, we are experiencing renewed growth and renewed vibrancy! We firmly believe God does not desire us to simply be satisfied with being an anomaly in a declining church culture, but we believe God desires us to be a catalyst in our region, the country and the world.  Your help is needed!

 What your funds will be used for: 
God is calling us to be a church that can help people connect to Christ by sending the Gospel out to the ends of the earth through our livestream ministry.  Not only is God calling our church to do passionate ministries within our walls, but He is calling us to be a training center that sends church planters out to launch vibrant churches.  God is calling us to be an example for growing a Gospel centered ministry in the 21st century. In addition, He is calling us to be a place where area churches and their leaders can grow and experience the excitement of what it means to do Gospel-centered ministry by hosting Starlight Conference opportunities in our facility. Our first step to accomplish this vision is The Connecting Fund.  Funds are needed now. 

You support will be instrumental in helping to Connect People to Christ by live streaming the gospel, church planting and training up all ready ordained ministers to help their communities Connect to Christ in the 21st Century. 
We thank you for your grateful heart, for focusing on God's Word and giving of the blessings God has provided.  "Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,” Eph. 5:20
