About Us - Berean Baptist Church
We are a multiethnic, economically diverse, servant minded people, committed to Great Commission living.
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15,16. The church then is a group of born again people (those who accepted the biblical account of Jesus Christ being God, who came to earth to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world, and trusted in that act to be the only and complete means to receive eternal live and forgiveness from their sins.), who have been so radically changed by that transaction of faith that we join together to share this experience, worship the God of so great a salvation and encourage one another in the pursuit of greater intimacy with our great father and Lord Jesus Christ.
"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42
The ministry is not focused on felt needs of a self driven society but rather on surrender to Christ centered living, believing that fellowship with Christ is the greatest need of all men. We encourage all who come, to embrace a servant like attitude (valuing others more than oneself), knowing that this will bring the greatest peace and joy into ones life. The ministry seeks to involve all its members in service toward their church family and the community, believing that in this culture it is a major means of maturing ones relationship with their Lord. We must not only be hearers of the word only but doers. Christianity is not a spectator sport!
We are about building up people
"Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it." Mark 8:35,36 The church is a mission's minded group supporting many missionaries, and annually sending our pastor, Dr. Shane Belding, to the mission fields abroad to teach and mentor pastors and students. The body has a world wide influence for the cause of Christ.
We are about sending the Good News to every person
The church is concerned for the children of our community and strategically we design efforts to minister to them through KIDS4TRUTH, Children's Church service, Youth Bible studies, and Youth Activities. We are about preparing the next generation to be servant leaders.
We would love to have you come and be a part of our family where we are committed to helping people know the Savior Jesus Christ either for the first time or in a deeper richer manner.
