Pastor Craig's Corner

Sundays are always a great day as we have the opportunity to gather together to encourage one another, worship together, and study God’s Word.  Anne and I are attending the 100th anniversary of First Baptist Church of Strawberry Plains, TN. This church is where I served my first pastorate. So many years have passed since we have had the opportunity to be with these special people.  I ask you  to pray for me as I will be preaching this anniversary service. In turn, rest assured the Bethlehem Family is very much in both our thoughts and prayers as you worship today. Tommy Stowe will be preaching the 8:30am service, and Justin Haynes will be preaching the 10:45am service. I am sure God has given both of these men the right word at the right time for you today!more...

Easter Sunday was a great day. Thanks for working hard inviting your friends and family to be a part of our Easter Sunday worship services. Those many invitations helped as we saw over 650 people attending last Sunday.  Indeed, we serve a risen Savior. Christ has called his church to be a catalyst in impacting our world with the Gospel. Allow Christ to work through you to make a difference in your homes, workplaces, schools and social outlets.more...

Easter Sunday is the Sunday of Sundays for the follower of Jesus. Today, we celebrate the resurrection! Yes, people have tried to give us different theories explaining away the resurrection. Yet the ages have recorded Jesus, indeed, rose from the grave. This morning, I am talking about an important lesson from the empty tomb. We can have a new beginning! Maybe you are here and have never surrendered to Christ.   You can have a new beginning. Maybe you are here and have surrendered to Christ, but your life is a mess. You have lived too long on your own energy or intellect and you are just tired. Maybe, you have just messed up. You can have a new beginning.more...

This week is very special as we prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the risen Lord. We have been studying the seven statements Jesus made from the cross. In His first three statements, he was focused on others. He was then focused on His suffering in the next two statements. His final two statements were bold proclamations. We are looking at the sixth statement this morning when Jesus simply proclaimed, “It is finished.” Please note He did not say, “I am finished.” Of course, this was not the end of Jesus. Today, I will give you four wonderful explanations concerning what this statement means to us.more...

We continue to look at the Last Words of Christ while on the cross in preparation for Easter Sunday. Today, we study the 5th statement where Jesus says, “I am thirsty.”  We will see his suffering but also note his grace and mercy as His mission on earth was being accomplished.more...
