BEREAN LONG TERM VISION
"The VISION of the Berean Bible Fellowship is to establish a progressive prototype New Testament Church to serve as a model for ministry in the year 2020 and beyond in an urban setting. Our desire is to establish a Gospel Worship Style Ministry emphasizing consistent New Testament methods of evangelism/discipleship and solid biblical teaching. We want to stimulate healing for the whole person by expanding ministries to encourage physical, psychological, economic, and spiritual healthiness in a worship community that is reflective of the love of God."
THE BEREAN MISSION
"The Berean Bible Fellowship is a local church committed to the ministry of discipleship, developing leaders, inspiring unity (both inside and outside the church), evangelizing the lost, exercising the gifts of the Holy Spirit and performing the work of ministry."
These values are listed to align our organization so that each member, functioning auxiliary and prospective new member will know the values of our Church.
