who we are


“Now these (the Bereans) were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, for they received the word with great eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily, to see whether these things were so.”

 –Acts 17:11

Our Theme

Plant a church, make disciples, reach the world

Our Purpose Statement

The Berean Fellowship of Churches exists to establish and nurture a fellowship of interdependent churches and related ministries in strategic areas.

Our Vision Statement

It is the vision of the Berean Fellowship of Churches to glorify Christ in our generation through aggressively establishing churches worldwide, training believers in Christlikeness and reaching the lost with the hope of the gospel.


The Berean Fellowship is a family of churches committed to the authority of the Bible and the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Churches in the Fellowship enjoy flexibility in methodology while agreeing on a clearly defined doctrinal statement, a common constitution, and a shared vision for worldwide impact.

Pastors in the Berean Fellowship benefit from interdependence and a family spirit fostered by District pastors’ meetings, an annual pastors’ retreat, and the National Convention. The pastors of each District provide one another with support and accountability, and they assist mission churches and churches seeking pastors.

Some of the hallmarks of the Berean Fellowship include:

Christ-honoring longevity of leadership

Historic roots

Documented financial solvency

“Elder” form of government

A strong camping emphasis

Strong support of faith missions

These strengths provide a platform from which we plant churches, make disciples, and reach the world in our generation.
