Berean Baptist Church exists to glorify God through the proclamation of His truth, the pursuit of evangelical holiness, the propagation of loving unity among His people, and the evangelizing of the world.

It is our desire to recover and walk in the old paths that our protestant forefathers believed and taught, the faith once for all delivered to the saints (Jer. 6:16, Jude 3). We fervently believe that the recovery of the old evangelicalism preached with fresh power from the Holy Spirit is needed for a new awakening in our culture and in our world. Therefore by God’s grace we cling tenaciously to the sole authority of God’s inspired, infallible, inerrant, and all sufficient Word. We proclaim salvation from sin and the wrath that is to come by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone to the glory of God alone. We rejoice in the doctrines of free and sovereign grace and desire that the Lord would use these glorious truths to purify our evangelistic labors and to make us bold in our witness to the transforming power of the gospel. In our public worship we desire that our God would be exalted and well pleased with the adoration and praise we offer to Him through His Son.We would love for you and your family to visit with us as we worship our Great God! We stand ready to serve you in any way that we can.
