Church School

The process of spiritual development wherein the new disciple is taught and challenged to love, trust and obey God as he or she begins to discern and exercise their spiritual gift(s) in ministry.

Lenten Season

In the Christian church, Lent is a period of penitential preparation for Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday, six and a half weeks before Easter, and provides for 40-days of fasting and personal renewal.

Children's Church

It’s how the body of Christ walks beside parents to teach kids to embrace and live out the gospel. It’s about meeting kids on their level and sharing the gospel in a way that makes sense to them.

Greetings Virtual Friend,

Welcome to the virtual home of the Bethlehem Baptist Church of (Gum Springs) Alexandria, Virginia. Here we are intentional about educating, equipping, and empowering disciples for Kingdom readiness. Our theme for this season of ministry is “Equipping Forgiving Disciples to be God’s Redemptive A.G.E.N.T. In and Beyond the Sanctuary” Luke 4:18-19 (CEV) and II Corinthians 5:20-21 (NIV).

The Bethlehem Church family is a vibrant congregation with a passionate interest in the nurture and spiritual growth of seekers and disciples desiring to strengthen their faith walk with God. We encourage you to come alongside us and experience the transformative power of the Holy Spirit. Our ministry offerings are designed to provide opportunities to move a disciple of Jesus from spiritual inactivity to spiritual fulfillment through the exercising of one’s God-given gifts. If you are in search of a church where the Word of God is preached and taught and community care is intentionally encouraged, this then is the place for you! Why not take a leap of faith and join us as we become instruments of grace and compassion in someone’s life?

We invite you to join us! Come and see for yourself what the Lord is doing in our midst and BEYOND THE SANCTUARY!

Pastor Darrell K. White
