Welcome 

VISION STATEMENT

Loved and forgiven by a gracious Triune God, we become a community of love that inspires worship, compassion, service, prayer and spiritual growth in Christ  -  within these walls and beyond.


Our Mission: To make disciples by sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus.


Imagine: Christ Alive At Bethlehem!

 Bethlehem is a Missouri Synod Lutheran church located in Altoona, WI.  Our best understanding of God's calling and plan for Bethlehem is to connect people to His Son, Jesus Christ, and to show God's love by caring for each other, our guests and visitors, and our community.

God's Will for the Future of Our Congregation
Our community is Christ centered because of His work through Bethlehem.  We are His hands reaching out to our community providing a stable shelter.  Bethlehem is a beacon of hope and care in the sea of life because we are anchored to His Word.

Our guests return often because they are connected to Jesus through the Gospel.  They are genuinely welcomed, consistently included, and intentionally supported.

Our members are passionate disciples worshipping and growing in Christ with a deep, contagious faith.  We are equipped, encouraged, and challenged to be His servants to the world.

Join with us to realize this vision for Bethlehem and our community!

Come as Visitors, Leave as Friends
At Bethlehem we foster a spirit of evangelism, encourage personal witness, and invite our community to join the Family of God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.  When we participate in the congregation's mission to make disciples by sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus, we bring God's love to our homes, neighbors, and nations of the entire world.

We welcome you to join us at any time for worship, Bible study, and any activities that interest you.
