We believe the sixty-six books of the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that mankind was created in the image of God as a moral and rational being. The historic fall of mankind into sin and disobedience, individually and universally, produced divine condemnation.
We believe the atoning death of Jesus is totally and solely sufficient for the salvation of lost and sinful people and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines.
We believe that the church universal is God’s vehicle organized for proclaiming the good news of redemption in Jesus Christ to a lost world and that Berea is a resource to local churches in that mission.
