“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28 – 30

Discipleship Class Overview

Attending our New Members Discipleship classes is recommended for persons new to Bethlehem Baptist Church. There are six (6) Discipleship classes. Classes 3-6 of our Discipleship training are now available online. You can access these classes by going to our website home page at Click on the Ministry tab and select education and development then choose New Discipleship training. Follow the directions that guide you through the course material. Upon completion of the online Discipleship training, members should contact the church office at 215-643-4977 ask for Howard Russell to request the written assessments for classes 3-6 or email your request to for the written assessments for classes 3-6. New Members will be required to answer the fill in the blank assessments to the best of their ability based on the online training just completed. Upon completion of the written assessments for classes 3-6, please return the forms to the church office or email your answered assessments for classes 3-6 to New Members Discipleship Classes 1 & 2 will be offered on consecutive Wednesday evening’s simultaneously during bible study in another classroom at 7:00pm. If Wednesday evening is not attainable for New Members, a special request should be forwarded to Reverend Kevin Mitchell via email or contact the church office at 215-643-4977 to schedule class 1 & 2 on consecutive Sunday’s during the 9:00am bible study time. New Members are reminded, after receiving their training on Sunday morning; please join our 11:15am worship service. These six (6) total classes will help you understand more about your relationship with Christ, who we are as a church family, and how we love God and Serve people at Bethlehem Baptist Church.

The classes are interrelated, however, they are not incremental so that you may miss one class, continue on to the next, and pick up the missed course during a future offering. For example, if you miss class number one, you may continue with class number two. Since the classes continually rotate on Wednesday evening and Sunday morning, you may take class number one when it is next offered. The Sunday church bulletin will indicate the class number and title that is being offered Wednesday evening or Sunday morning. You may begin taking Discipleship classes at any time.

This handbook is yours to keep. You may write in it and take notes as you please. Please bring your work book on Wednesday evenings to follow along with your facilitator.
