Berea First Baptist Church exists to help people connect with Christ.

Est. 1843

Then the brethren immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea.

When they arrived, they went into the synagogue of the Jews.

These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica,

in that they received the word with all readiness,

and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so.

Acts 17:10-11

Our 2020 Theme at BFBC is “Make your Connection.” Throughout this year, our church will be challenged to connect with God and with others. This emphasis is based on Mark 12.

Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no other commandment greater than these.”  Mark 12:29-31

Connecting People with Christ

Our purpose at Berea First Baptist Church is to help people connect with Christ through celebration, community, and calling. As you visit our church during our time of celebration (worship services), we then invite you to join in community with other believers (community). As you grow in your faith, it is our prayer that you will then discover God’s calling on your life to serve Him.
