Mission Statement: To give of ourselves so others may know Jesus Christ.

Welcome to Bethlehem United Methodist Church

Our Mission:  To give of ourselves so others may know Jesus Christ. 

Bethlehem United Methodist Church is a congregation of Christian believers with over 180 years of history proclaiming the gospel and lifting the Biblical Faith before Dallastown, Red Lion and the surrounding community.  
We are a church that believes in the power of God to bring new life to all people who earnestly seek it. We see the cross as a place where all people may stand in unity.
We are diverse in our membership, yet united with Christ in our commitment. Rather than seek conformity, our Christian task is to use our gifts to meet the needs of people in our community.
We believe we are on the edge of an exciting new era. Come join us!
