First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
First Presbyterian Church Bethlehem strives to be a warm, inclusive, and devoted community unified not by political bent or theological distinctions, but by a common, passionate love of Jesus Christ and the salvation He promises. With a history of more than 140 years, the congregants of First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem have tender regard for our faith traditions, particularly in worship, koinonia, and mission, yet we hear God’s call to move beyond what we’ve known. We are examining new aspects of worship, and new connections and types of study to grow spiritually. We are seeking to engage more fully in community partnerships, when previously we’ve tended to serve others by ourselves. Our future call is to be intentionally inclusive, responsive to multi-generations, united in Christ, and to encourage more ways to live out Christ’s call to make disciples, within and outside our walls.
