Founded in 1940, Berean is a Jesus-centered community of sinners saved by grace. We believe that Christ's obedient life and atoning death purchased for us - by the power of the Holy Spirit - everything we need to stand justified before the Father. It is in the light of this glorious truth that we gather each week to worship God and edify one another.
The Scriptures reveal to us that we are saved by grace through faith in Christ alone, for God's glory. We dig through those Scriptures every Sunday - verse by verse - to discover again and again how the text points us to hope in Christ...Who is the "hope of glory!" (Col. 1:27)
To engage in Kingdom-Building and Church-Planting.
To be a family of worshippers whose commitment to discipleship, relationships with one another, and outreach to the lost all center upon the Word of God as our foundation, the glory of God as our focus, and the gospel of Jesus Christ as the fountain of our hope.
A Family of Worshipers: We purpose to be a body of believers so captivated by Jesus Christ and His gospel that we respond with lives filled with worship. Such worship should find its expression in exalting the Savior through the faithful exposition of His Word, the celebration of the ordinances, and the encouraging of one another through the public reading of Scripture, singing, prayer, and service.
A Community of Disciples: We purpose to declare the manifest wisdom of God to a watching world through our relationships with one another by submitting to God-ordained authorities, committing to discipleship of the body, and cultivating biblical fellowship and sanctifying relationships.
Ambassadors of Christ: We purpose to share the life-giving gospel of Christ with the world, to see God exalted as He makes disciples of every tribe, tongue, and nation by sending equipped believers out to evangelize in their communities, calling the community to our Lord through church-sponsored evangelistic events, ministering to the poor and needy, planting new local churches, and partnering with teams and movements in worldwide missions, including challenging and commissioning people from our own church family to worldwide missions.
