>>Church Purpose Statement:
Bethlehem Baptist Church is committed to Evangelism through Discipleship; a Church dedicated to Fellowship through Discipleship; a Church purposed to provide Discipleship through Ministry; moreover, to be a Church serving the whole man through Discipleship.
Bethlehem Baptist Church (affectionately referred to as “BBC”) is an evangelistic community of believers who believe in discipling men and women to have healthy relationships with God, their families, and others.
Through energetic worship, and the study of God’s Word, lives are consistently being transformed. As church assemblies continue to grow Saginaw. Bethlehem continues to carve its ministry niche as a leader in innovative evangelism.
The church's radical and timely approach to ministry defines true worship through firm core values that welcome people from all walks of life. The church continues to foster relationship building through providing discipleship classes, social events, community service, and various other fellowshipping events by interjecting life principles in all who join in through sermons and social media. You’ll find that Bethlehem provides a dynamic environment which is conducive for practical and spiritual growth for those seeking life-purpose and a personal relationship with God.
Our philosophy is to evangelize to our community and disciple men, women, and children by establishing genuine relationships, energetic worship, and a festive environment, all in the spirit of excellence. A participatory approach to ministry is used to create an "everybody is somebody" attitude, so each member supports one another while going a dimension higher.
