Family Life

We are concerned about our families here at Bethlehem Baptist Church. Our goal is to help strengthen and equip the family to face the many attacks that are levied against it in our world. God designed the family as the centerpiece for worship and life. It is no wonder that we have an enemy that wants to destroy the core of our religious and moral life. Consider what the following statements say about the family.

 

 

"A family is a place where principles are hammered and honed on the anvil of everyday living." 

- Chuck Swindoll
 

“To maintain a joyful family requires much from both the parents and the children. Each member of the family has to become, in a special way, the servant of the others.”

-          Pope John Paul II

 

"We need not expect the blessing of the Lord, the manifest tokens of his presence, upon our public meetings, if we neglect family and closet religion. No doubt the cold lifelessness, the lamentable apathy apparent in our public assemblies, is to be ascribed to the fact that we have little or no religion at home; that our hearts are not attuned for the services of the sanctuary by the devotions of the closet."

-          Circular Letter to the Georgia Baptist Convention, 1832

 
 
 
It is our goal to be a place that strengthens the family and helps engage every member in worship. We have places for everyone in your family, and we hope you will be a part of our family here at Bethlehem.
