about us

 Berea Baptist Church was founded in 1938 by a small group of believers and continues to grow today. God is at work in our church and among our community, and we are excited to see where He takes us next. 


Our Mission

The  purpose of this church is to glorify God through the salvation of the lost, the edification of the believers and the spread of the Gospel as commanded by our Lord. (Matthew 28:19-20) This purpose is accomplished  by our commitment to:



This includes singing, praying, preaching, serving, giving, and observing the ordinances (John 4:24; Eph. 3:21; Jude1:24-25; Rev. 4:11; Col. 3:16; Matt. 6:9; Tit. 1:3; Heb. 13:15-16, 21; Matt. 28:19; I Cor. 11:23-26)



The preaching of the Gospel and the teaching of the Word of God to all the world. (Matt. 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8; Gal. l:8-9; II Tim. 4:1-5)



a) Instructing all believers in Scripture truth (Matt. 28:20) and b) The defense of the faith once for all delivered unto the saints. (Jude 3; Heb. 10:23; Rev. 3:8)



a) Uniting together in regular meetings (Acts 2:42-47; Heb. 10:25) and b) The mutual love, care, and concern for others, especially those of the household of faith. (James 2:14-16; Gal. 6:10; Rom.12:13; I John 3:17)


our Beliefs


We believe in the authority and sufficiency of the Holy Bible; that it is inspired and therefore is infallible and inerrant in all matters of which it speaks.  We believe the Bible to be the true center of Christian unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creed, and opinions shall be tried. (II Tim. 3:16,17; II Pet. 1:19-21)



We believe there is one, and only one, living and true God; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption.  (Exod. 20:2-3; I Cor. 8:6; Rev. 4:11; I John 5:7; John 10:30; II Cor. 13:14)



We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus and that personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only condition of salvation; repentance is a change of mind and purpose toward God (John 3:3; II Cor. 5:17;   I John 5:1; Acts 16:20-33; II Pet. 1:4; Rom. 6:23; Eph. 2:1,5; Col. 2:13; John 3:8)
