FPCB in the Community
While we have been limited in our typical outreach activities, we have connected in new ways while looking ahead to future opportunities.
Welcoming to All
Our goal at First Presbyterian Church of Bethlehem is to provide a warm, welcoming and inclusive opportunity to connect with God. We understand that each person has a very personal relationship with God and connects with God in different ways.
Wherever you are in your faith journey, we want to serve as a Christian community that helps you
fully embrace your spiritual being, develop a sustaining faith, and find purpose, meaning,
and joy in your life.
As a diverse and joyful community of Christ’s followers, we explore how God’s gracious love gives meaning to our lives and faith and inspires us to address the needs of our world. Through our worship, learning, and service, God fills us with purpose, compassion, courage, and hope.
Our Core Values:
Christ-Centered | An Inquiring Faith
An Active Faith | Welcoming To All
