You are always welcome at Bethlehem Temple. If you are searching for a church where life's basic purposes and mankind's deepest needs are met through the teaching of the word of God, where Jesus Christ is honored LORD over all, and where people express their beliefs through love, concern and friendship for one another, then we encourage you to make our church home your home of worship and fellowship
