“To provide quality child care and education in a Christian environment so that each child can develop his or her total potential spiritually, socially, intellectually, physically and emotionally.”
Our Purpose and Philosophy
Greater Bethlehem Temple Child Care Center partners with parents to develop, nurture and love each child within the framework of a supportive, secure environment. We unite quality child care and early education with traditional Christian values in our year round program. The ages are 8 weeks - 4 years for early childcare and 5 - 12 years for after school and summer academy. Every child is encouraged to explore and develop the abilities, talents, and potential that is innate in each one. Greater Bethlehem Temple Church provides this service as a ministry to working parents and their children from six weeks of age through fifth-grade.
Our Spiritual Foundation
The good news is that Jesus, who is God manifested in flesh, came to our world and gave His life on the cross to save us from our sins (Luke 19:10). When He died He paid the full penalty for the sins of everyone in the world and opened the way for us to be forgiven of our sins (John 1:29). As the Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, Jesus did not have a sinful nature as we do. Therefore, He could and did die for our sins.As God manifested in flesh (John 1:1, 14; 1 Timothy 3:16; Matthew 1:23), Jesus has the power to forgive us of our sins. No one can cleanse himself from his past sins, nor can he by his own efforts destroy his innate sinful nature. But Jesus can both cleanse him of his sins and give him a new birth of righteousness. (See 1 John 1:9; John 3:3-5).
