The people of Bethlehem Lutheran Church welcome you, to our site, to our community.
We've been here in Billings since 1949 - We took the name "Bethlehem" because, like Jesus, the church was born in a barn. Many renovations later, the church has a lovely sanctuary, education wing and fellowship hall.
We are a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. To us, "evangelical" means gospel-centered. We are all about sharing the good news (the gospel) of what God has done and is doing in the world. To say we are "Lutheran" means we are grounded in the understanding that we are saved through faith by grace (Ephesians 2:8).
Bethlehem is also a Reconciling In Christ congregation. All are welcome, no exceptions. You are invited to view our welcome statement.
We gather around the sacrament of communion once a week, because this bread of life and cup of salvation, strengthens and nourishes us to be people of God. We, you, me and the whole human family are the beloved people of God. Our Lutheran understanding of grace reminds us that nothing we do, or fail to do, can change God's love for us. But we forget.
