Bethlehem Baptist maintains partnerships with several ministries and non-profit organizations as we seek to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ in Virginia, North America, and around the world.
SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONSERVATIVES OF VIRGINIA
Bethlehem is affiliated with the SBC of Virginia, a fellowship of more than 800 local churches dedicated to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. The convention began in 1996 based on a belief in the inerrancy of Scriptures and committed to church planting as a means to reach the world for Christ. sbcv.org
NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD
The North American Mission Board embraces the vision that Christ spoke in Acts 1:8 that …you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. The missions entity strives to fulfill the Lord’s expectation that a global missions strategy begins with a strong home base that will expand to the global arena. NAMB is the Southern Baptist entity empowered to assist churches to reach North America for Christ. namb.net
INTERNATIONAL MISSION BOARD
The mission of the International Mission Board is evangelizing, discipling and planting reproducing churches among all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission. And, the vision of the IMB is a multitude from every language, people, tribe and nation, knowing and worshipping our Lord, Jesus Christ. imb.org
SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is a fellowship of over 47,000 Baptist churches scattered across the United States and its territories. These congregations, comprised of numerous racial, ethnic, language, and socioeconomic people groups, are called “cooperating churches.” They have organized themselves to accomplish a specific set of missions and ministry initiatives, all for the purpose of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people everywhere. sbc.net
A percentage of every dollar you give to Bethlehem goes to support the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention. Joining 47,000 other Southern Baptist churches, the total Cooperative Program giving includes all monies given by churches through state conventions to be used for Great Commission ministry and missions within the respective states, across North America and around the world. Begun in 1925, the Cooperative Program is the financial fuel to fund the SBC mission and vision of reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state and every nation. The Cooperative Program funds the International Mission Board, the North American Mission Board, the six Southern Baptist seminaries, Disaster Relief, the Baptist World Hunger Fund, the SBC Executive Committee, the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia, and more. sbc.net/cp
