Berea Lutheran Brethren is a unique church of Lutheran faith and Evangelical life. If you are new to the area or looking for a church home, we invite you to get acquainted with us. As you visit we trust that you will discover a friendly, family-oriented church where you can feel at home.
Our name "Berea" is taken from a place in the Bible where a group of believers received the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ with great eagerness, and they studied the Scriptures daily to see that the message was true (Acts 17:11). At Berea we are excited about what Christ has done for all who call upon Him in faith, and we are committed to studying and sharing God's Word.
The Bible is God's Word and it is the final authority for faith and life.
God desires to have a personal relationship with every individual He has created.
All people need to turn from sin and trust in God's grace alone for salvation
Jesus Christ is true God and true man who gave His life on the cross as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world
- The Holy Spirit comforts and strengthens believers as they seek to grow in their faith and walk with God
