Statement of Faith

At Berean Bible Church we believe:

  1. That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God, and inerrant in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and conduct (2 Timothy 3:16,17; 2 Peter 1:21). In the presentation of the Word, it is to be "rightly divided" according to dispensational principle as set forth in 2 Timothy 2:15, ASV, "Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth."
  2. In ONE GOD, creator and sustainer of the universe, existing eternally in three persons, FATHER, SON, and HOLY SPIRIT. (Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Timothy 2:5; Ephesians 4:4-6; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Romans 9:5)
  3. In the eternal deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son; that He was co-existent with the Father; that He is before all things and that by Him all things consist. He was begotten by the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man. (Luke 1:35; Philippians 2:6-9; Romans 1:3,4; Matthew 1:23; John 20:28; Hebrews 1:8)
