Our Mission Statement

Glorifying God by reaching the lost and equipping the saints through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Our Mission Verse

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.  Matthew 28: 19-20 

Geography

Why Berean?

In the Bible, Acts 17: 10-11 says, "10. That very night the believers sent Paul and Silas to Berea. When they arrived there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11. And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica and they listened eagerly to Paul's message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth." We want to be like the people of Berea. A group of imperfect people who love Jesus and believe that the Bible is God's only Word. Through scripture and fellowship we are learning to live out God's mission within our daily lives. 

WHAT WE BELIEVE  

Our Philosophy & Doctrine

The Berean Fellowship was built upon a solid biblical foundation and has always placed special emphasis on the authority of Scripture, the supremacy of Jesus Christ, and the importance of advancing the Gospel through personal relationships, church planting, and world missions.

THEN PETER SAID TO THEM,
"REPENT, AND LET
EVERY ONE OF YOU
BE BAPTIZED
-IN THE NAME OF-
JESUS CHRIST 
FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS; AND
YOU SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT."
ACTS 2:38

Baptism

Christian Baptism is one of two ordinances that Jesus instituted for the church. Just before His ascension, Jesus said, "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28: 19-20) These instructions specify that the church is responsible to teach Jesus' word, make disciples, and baptize those disciples. These things are to be done everywhere, "all nations," until "the very end of the age."

 

Baptism is important because Jesus commanded it. Christian baptism is the means by which a person makes a public profession of faith and discipleship. In the waters of baptism, a person says, wordlessly, "I confess faith in Christ; Jesus has cleansed my soul from sin, and I now have a new life of sanctification."

Christian baptism illustrates, in dramatic style, the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. At the same time, it also illustrates our death to sin and new life in Christ. Very simply, baptism is an outward testimony of the inward change in a believer's life. Christian baptism is an act of obedience to the Lord after salvation: although baptism is closely associated with salvation, it is not a requirement to be saved. The Bible shows in many places that the order of events is;

1. a person believes in the Lord Jesus

2. he is baptized

The sequence is seen in Acts 2:41, "Those who accepted Peter's message were baptized."

Baptisms are performed during the summer at the Niobrara river in August. Please contact Pastor Scott for further information.
