Our Setting

Beautiful Panama City Beach

Bethesda by the Sea is located in beautiful Panama City Beach, Florida, "Home of the World's Best Beaches." This pristine stretch of white, sandy beaches and clear, blue-green surf is known as the Emerald Coast. It's as close as you can get to the Caribbean without leaving the US!

 

Panama City Beach was recently ranked #3 in TripAdvisor's list of the top beaches in the United States. You have 27 miles of beautiful beaches to choose from, as well as several natural springs to enjoy.

Walking this lovely beach that God gave us, enjoying the sunshine and surf, and listening to the sound of the waves, helps us connect with Him. It speaks to us of our Father's faithfulness and constancy, as well as the vastness of His overwhelming love. He never stops pursuing us as He leads us to freedom and deeper intimacy with Him. It is refreshing and restorative to walk with the Lord in this environment and listen for His still, small voice as part of a healing journey.

 

Bethesda by the Sea is conveniently located less than half an hour from the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) and only half a mile from the beach. It's a short walk -- and an even quicker drive -- to the M.B. Miller County Pier, where you'll find easy beach access with ample parking, restrooms, and outdoor showers.
