Matthew 16:18 - And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
Bethlehem Baptist Church was founded in 1865 by Reverend T. H. Hall. In May, 1976 God sent Pastor Culp to Bethlehem Baptist Church, where he has been the pastor for 40 years.
In a dream in 1989, God gave Pastor Culp the vision to construct a new church. Though the task was great, and resources were small, Pastor Culp set out to complete this mission. Working long hours (day and night), with the strength of Sampson, patience of Job, wisdom of Solomon, faith of Daniel, and the endurance of Jesus, the building was completed in 1992, debt free.
Pastor Culp has been assisted by several officers throughout the years. Our current ministerial staff includes Mnister Paul Griffin and Minister Gilbert “Garry” Middleton.
