Pastor Rich's hopes for Bethlehem:
More important than growing in numbers or growing in programs or finances, I believe that we must all commit ourselves to growing in faith and spirit. I will consider myself successful at Bethlehem if I have helped people become closer to Christ as their savior, and if I have aided our members in achieving a deeper spiritual walk. We continue looking for God's activity in the world around us.
